Attendance for the Advanced Engineering show which took place recently in Birmingham, UK, was up 15%, according to its organizers.

Stall holders included Airbus, Boeing, Jaguar Land Rover, Hexcel, and Dassault Systèmes, with visitors from a range of engineering specialisms including automation, design & test engineering, process control and machining.

Products on show included a hydrogen powered car, aircraft landing gear, a battery made 100% from recycled materials, a ground based test rig for electric contra rotating propulsion, and a Libralato hybrid engine.

‘This year, the Performance Metals Engineering zone was outstanding,’ said Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, organisers of the show. ‘And now, we are looking to even more areas of expansion for Advanced Engineering, with the addition of our new Nuclear Engineering zone, addressing nuclear energy build, operation and supply chain.’

Next year’s show takes place from 31 October-1 November 2018.
