Engineering Expo: Everything You Need To Know

We’re back on the road! This time, we are heading to Engineering Expo – one of the UK’s largest engineering trade shows.

As part of Manufacturing & Engineering Week (7 – 10th June 2022), Birmingham’s NEC is playing host to four co-located exhibitions – Design Engineering Expo, Manufacturing Expo, Maintec, and Engineering Expo.

You’ll catch us at the latter, talking all things electronics and software engineering. We’re even bringing our latest and greatest PCB test fixture!

“Whatever your current design, engineering or manufacturing challenge, this is an incredible opportunity to
connect with experts and leave armed with ideas and solutions to apply.”

Engineering Expo

Free to attend as a visitor, and with a range of conferences and seminars held throughout the two-day expo, it’s well worth popping by!

At a time where the electronics supply chain is under immense pressure, this is a terrific opportunity to meet other heads of industry under the same roof and share ideas and thought leadership.

We’ll be on Stand P38 at Engineering Expo across both days, so do pop by and say hello to our team!

We’re bringing our brand-new test fixtures, kindly provided by MG Products, for live demonstrations of the PCB testing process.

Testing is a critical part of the product development process, helping to reduce recall rates, adherence to compliance standards, and increase overall product quality.

So, if you’re working on a project right now, let’s talk testing!
