Addressing structures, propulsion and systems, it brings together global OEMs and top tier manufacturers to source from all levels of the engineering supply chain. Supported by ADS, NATEP, and all regional associations, Aero Engineering additionally brings some of the latest innovations and case studies to the show floor. 

Composites Engineering

The rise of composite materials continues across an ever-increasing number of applications. The advances provided by composite materials within automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, construction and oil and gas, to name just a few, are revolutionising businesses and benefiting millions of people. The Composites Engineering show has already established itself as one of the world’s most important composite raw material, design, processing and applications events. 

Auto Engineering

The auto sector is still vital to the UK economy, and a whole raft of OEMs are looking to develop and source new technologies from the supply chain. Join with attendees ranging from the likes of Aston Martin to Vauxhall, at the UK’s only trade exhibition and forum dedicated to the latest technologies and innovations in vehicle R & D, design, test, production, and assembly. 


The development and application of advanced metals such as Aluminium, Titanium, and Magnesium, remains vital to all advanced manufacturing sectors, especially aerospace and automotive.
