by Tony Tickner


Building on the success of its inaugural 2012 event, this year’s Automotive Engineering Show at NEC Birmingham on 12-13 November 2013 is set to attract all sides of the UK’s automotive engineering supply chain. Hosted as part of the hugely successful Advanced Engineering UK group of events, the UK’s showpiece event for multiple high value engineering & technology sectors, the 2013 Automotive Engineering Show moves to Hall 5, the NEC’s premier and largest exhibition area.

Representing the UK’s only 100% dedicated show and open conference for Automotive body, chassis, powertrain and supply chain engineering, the Automotive Engineering Show 2013 provides a uniquely tailored ‘showcase’ of specialist UK and international engineering services, design/production technology & specialist parts & component suppliers supporting the UK’s multiple vehicle design, development & production engineering programmes – from Passenger Car, Performance Vehicle, CV, Truck, Motorcycle, Specialist, Low Carbon Vehicle & Engine sectors.

The adjoining ‘Automotive Electronics’ show stream, provides of a parallel showcase of capability supporting auto electronics design and test, manufacturing, assembly, integration, and supply chain programmes, supporting the industry’s drive to new levels of drivability, functionality and efficiency.

60% increase in Automotive show floor exhibitors

For 2013 some 200+ specialist UK & international exhibitors will combine on this year’s Automotive Engineering (and related Auto Electronics) show floor areas, presenting an invaluable sourcing environment for partners & technologies supporting the Body/Chassis, Engine/Transmission, Interior, Exterior, Electrics, Electronics & developing Low Carbon vehicle sectors.

From specialist Automotive-sector Sub-contract Engineering Services to Automotive Raw Materials /Standard Parts & Consumables suppliers, from Design, Development & Styling to Automotive Test, Evaluation & Quality Engineering; from Production Engineering Plant, Equipment, Tooling, Automation & CAE technologies to Tier Components, Parts, Systems & Sub-assemblies providers, the event provides a ‘must attend’ dedicated environment for industry technical & procurement professionals at every stage of the engineering lifecycle – from automotive design & developmental engineering, through to production/assembly/supply chain & integration engineering.

New for 2013 on the Automotive Engineering & Auto Electronics show floor are a whole host of UK and international names including the likes of: Jaguar Land Rover, Stanley Black & Decker (FACOM), Caterham Technology, Cosworth, The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), Freescale Semiconductor UK, AEL Powertrain Solutions, Scaglia Indeva Ltd, RMIG Nold GmbH, Hamamatsu Photonics UK Ltd, Kistler Instruments, Tektronix UK and many more.


Sit in on a choice of technical & strategic presentations

The 2013 Aero Engineering Show floor will again include an intensive free to attend programme of expert presentations, in partnership with leading industry bodies and companies – providing unmissable sector landscaping and insight into latest technology, capability and innovations in design, materials, testing, manufacturing and processes. Just some of the stakeholder headline organisations supporting this year’s 2 day open conference programme the likes of MIRA, the Niche Vehicle Network, CPI, Jaguar Land Rover, Romax Technology, UKTI, Prodrive, Engineering Integrity Society, Siemens Automotive, Briggs Automotive Company, Motorsport Industry Association, Aluminium Federation, IHS Automotive, IDTechX and others.
