All the exhibition stands at the 2017 Engineering Design Show (EDS) have been allocated and visitor registration is now open for the UK”s largest exhibition and conference entirely dedicated to the design engineering community. EDS combines the Engineering, Electronics and Embedded Design Shows, which return to the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 18-19 October 2017.
The 2017 edition of EDS will feature the largest number of exhibiting companies since the show launched in 2012, with 220 exhibitors confirmed and record visitor numbers anticipated across the two days.
Added as a new feature in 2016, the Future Zone on the show floor features hands-on demonstrations of the latest engineering design tools. This year the Future Zone will feature cutting-edge desktop Virtual Reality engineering design systems from Lenovo alongside a PCB 3D printer featuring nanotechnology conductive and dielectric inks specifically for PCB designers.
The EDS conference will once again offer 24 keynote presentations brought together by the editors of New Electronics and Eureka magazines, offering insight and debate. Highlights for 2017 include Ocado, Robo Challenge, designers of the Robot Wars house robot, NXP and Lenovo. The full conference agenda will be released shortly.
EDS is the only show in the UK that caters specifically and entirely for the modern design engineer from all market sectors, making it the ‘must attend’ event for the UK design engineering community. EDS provides a dynamic environment in which to interact with suppliers, customers and colleagues.
The packed exhibition hall will feature the latest technologies, materials, tools, software and services enabling visitors to source products and review supply chains. The exhibition hall also features three workshop theatres, where delegates can earn CPD points from the iED, presenting new design solutions and discussing the trends driving design engineering forward.
