MACH 2016 prepares for take-off
26 September 2014
Planning for MACH 2016 is already well under way, with companies large and small already securing their spaces for the exhibition.
The MTA, which owns and runs the exhibition, says that an area that has been particularly successful over the last two MACH exhibitions has been the UK Manufacturing Zone which brings together major global manufacturers and companies in the UK supply chain. The Zone is an innovative way to showcase how UK manufacturing can work together – a theme borne out in the seminar and networking programmes that were a key part of it.
Colin Sirett, head of research and technology at Airbus UK, which has already confirmed its attendance, said: "MACH 2104 provided Airbus a great opportunity to participate in the UK's largest International Manufacturing Exhibition. It proved invaluable to be able to meet all sectors of the manufacturing industry, and to discuss our future challenges. What we did not expect, was the strong support from schools and colleges who took the opportunity to give their students a greater insight into this buoyant sector. This was an event that spanned all dimensions of manufacturing. Airbus is certainly looking forward to supporting MACH again in 2016."
