It may be just over eighteen months away but planning for MACH 2016 is already well under way, with companies large and small already securing their spaces for the Exhibition. The MTA, which owns and runs the Exhibition, has brought forward the process of allocating the space on the floor. That will give companies from industrial sectors which have not traditionally been brought into the exhibition more time to get involved in Britain’s biggest industrial event.
The MTA’s Annual Golf Day started ominously with a torrential downpour, however by the time the teams arrived the sun had come out and 8 teams took up the Challenge of Hellidon Lakes course near Daventry, Northants.
Teams joined us from CMZ, Sharmic, Jemtech, ETG Group (Current Champs), BPE Solicitors, The Manufacturer, MA Ford and SolidCam. The course proved a real challenge as it’s very hilly and has greens which proved very unpredictable.
MTA Members, including Group Rhodes, Renishaw and Delcam, are currently in India with the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg as part of a delegation focused on the aerospace sector. The three-day visit to India, with a 40-strong trade delegation, will take advantage of the opportunities presented by the new Indian government’s focus on economic growth. The delegation will be joined by Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. It is the first high-level trade mission to India since Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected in May.
