Waiting for them will be a broad cross-section of the UK Electronics industry, together with a wide selection of associated products and services from general industry, such as sheet metal, consumables and production equipment. This breadth gives the event an unparalleled appeal and guarantees visitors an absorbing and worthwhile visit. Altogether, well over 250 companies are expected to participate, ranging from major international manufacturers to regional specialists.

A few of the significant suppliers already confirmed include LCL Electronics, Lemo, BAE Systems, European Circuits, Henkel, MagDev and PACE Europe.

However, components are merely part of a much bigger show that encompasses anything and everything related with manufacturing industry. Robotics & automation, sensors, enclosures, test equipment, optical inspection, hand tools, storage and lots of others will all be on display. Technology trails guide delegates around the event, making it possible for them to make the most effective use of time at the show. Subcontract services presented include 3D design, electronic assembly, sub-contract manufacturing, tool making and production equipment. The show also features many big-name machinery manufacturers such as Amada, Bystronic and Haas Automation giving live demonstrations throughout the two-day event.
