Findlay Media launches Engineering Design Show

09 November 2011

Findlay Media has announced the launch of The Engineering Design Show.

Taking place on October 10th and 11th 2012 at the Jaguar Exhibition Hall at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, the Show will focus on the needs of design engineers in the mechanical and electronic fields and will include a comprehensive conference and workshop programme.

Running throughout the two days of the show, the conference will focus on a broad range of themes and topics targeting the requirements and realities of design engineering within the UK. With subjects ranging from materials development through to regulation, the conference will bring together high profile speakers from across industry, government and academia.

In addition, both of the two workshop theatres will offer visitors practical and hands on content in the form of case study presentations by leading technology experts. This area will be free for visitors to attend and each workshop session will be promoted individually with a full synopsis of what visitors can expect to learn.

Findlay Media's executive director, Ed Tranter, said: "The research undertaken by New Electronics and Eureka magazines in July 2011 confirmed for us that The Engineering Design Show will offer something unique and valued in the market: an exhibition catering specifically for design engineers, regardless of the industry in which they work.

"With a high level conference, free practical workshops and an exhibition demonstrating and promoting cutting edge technology and innovation from market leading suppliers, The Engineering Design Show is the only event providing for the needs of the UK's design engineers."

The show at launch is already 54% booked and has been well received by leading companies and industry bodies.

Steven Tetlow, president and chief executive of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, said: "Good design goes hand in hand with good engineering – one cannot exist without the other. The Engineering Design Show is to be applauded for offering our world class design engineers the chance to enhance their knowledge and expertise.

"This conference will give design engineers a unique opportunity to meet, get hands on training in the latest techniques and share ideas, which can only be a good thing for the industry as a whole."

More details of the conference and workshop sessions will be revealed over the coming months.
