Building on the success of its market-leading brands, including Works Management, Eureka, FAST, Machinery and New Electronics, Findlay Media has announced the launch of Manufacturing & Engineering North East (MENE) – a completely new type of event aimed at manufacturing and engineering professionals in the North East region.
Taking place at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on 8th-9th July 2015, Manufacturing & Engineering North East will showcase the region’s strengths and provide a platform for the local and national manufacturers, engineers and their suppliers to meet, learn, solve problems and develop business ideas.
The event will comprise three key elements covering the full range of design, production and manufacturing:
• Keynote conference sessions from market-leading engineering and manufacturing businesses
• Focused technical workshop sessions
• An exhibition with access to market-leading suppliers
With keynotes from senior manufacturing and engineering professionals at leading brands across the aerospace, automotive, motorsport and electronics sectors, the Manufacturing & Engineering North East conference will provide delegates with powerful content spanning all areas of production, design and manufacturing management.
High quality practical workshops will also be taking place on both days within the two theatres on the show floor. The workshop sessions are free to attend and will provide best practice learning and insight into the latest engineering and manufacturing techniques. Subjects covered will range from metrology and rapid prototyping, to factory floor automation and test and measurement.
“Ultimately, the event’s most fundamental aim is to champion the manufacturing industry in the region and offer professionals in the sector a comprehensive event focusing on their needs and their needs alone. I’m very pleased to report that the response has been phenomenal, with the exhibition space now completely sold out, over five months before the event takes place,” says Findlay Media’s Executive Director, Ed Tranter.
A number of leading trade bodies and institutions have pledged their support for Manufacturing & Engineering North East, including the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS), North East LEP, Gateshead & Newcastle Inward Investment and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED).
Manufacturing & Engineering North East was created on the back of independent research and interviews with over 200 manufacturing and engineering decision makers from the North East. Registration for the event is free for all qualifying professionals and opens on 9 February at:www.menortheast.co.uk/register
