The Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition will be marking its 20th anniversary next month. The organisers describe it as “the must-attend event for every industrial engineering and manufacturing professional”. Hence, it is billed as the UK’s largest regional manufacturing technology, electronics and subcontracting exhibition. More than 800 national and international suppliers will be exhibiting. By any measure, this is a big event in the UK’s engineering calendar.

To coincide with its 20th anniversary, the show will move to a new, permanent venue in Farnborough. For many years the event has taken place in a temporary structure. However this year, the show will be the first major exhibition to take place in the new, purpose-built £30m conference and exhibition centre at Farnborough International.
And with the first powered flight having taken off from Farnborough back in 1908, it is a fitting location for such an exhibition.
Alongside many well-known names in the engineering world, Axminster will be exhibiting for the second year in a row. “Our team will demonstrate the CNC Technology iKX3 mill and iKC6 lathe, milling an aluminium component and turning a brass component on the lathe. Plus pillar drills and a bandsaw from the Axminster Engineer Series brand will be on display” says general sales manager Mark O’Halloran.
Full of innovations
At this event, visitors will discover new local and national suppliers, many exhibiting for the first time. The event is full of innovations, new products and demonstrations. A free technical seminar programme will be running over the three days. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to bring along plans and technical drawings for discussion, and potentially resolve any manufacturing issues.
In short, Southern Manufacturing and Electronics is among the best marketplaces in the UK for all varieties of manufacturing hardware.
The exhibition is free to attend and parking is also free. For more information, visit the show’s website.
