Newsletter Listing intro for week 50

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

We are now just 116 days away from the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies event and things are shaping up nicely. Hall 5 at the NEC is now sold out and Hall 4 has only limited space available, so make sure you contact the MACH 2016 sales team to book your stand now, before it is too late.

Continuing with MACH 2016, all exhibitors are entitled to be included in the MACH Bulletin, a weekly e-newsletter about the show, which is delivered to our extensive mailing list. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to increase your companies profile in the build up to the exhibition. Contact Tom Lane - PR and Communications at the MTA (tlane@mta.org.uk) to book your slot today.

Luigi Galdabini has become President of the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries (CECIMO). This was agreed at a meeting held on 3 December 2015 in Brussels, Mr. Luigi Galdabini will be President of CECIMO for a period of two years. Find out more in the story below.

UK Trade & Investment invites UK companies specialising in Advanced Manufacturing, the Internet of Things/E-commerce or FinTech to participate in the trade delegation of British companies travelling to Warsaw, Prague and Budapest. For more information email megamission2016@ukti-events.co.uk.

We will be closing the November edition of the MTA Business Survey early next week; so if you haven’t participated yet please follow this link to participate http://www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-nov15

The latest data on manufacturing output in the UK continues to reflect a divergence among the key users of manufacturing technology with strong growth in the Automotive industry continuing and although Aerospace seems to have levelled off, activity remains at a very high level; meanwhile, the Machinery industry, which includes a number of product groups which are most exposed to the weak parts of the global manufacturing environment, seeing a further downturn in output.  The latest data on the European Economy shows the modest growth rate generally continuing, with only a handful of economies contracting in the 3rd quarter.

That’s all for this week, we’ll be back next Friday with the last Brief of 2015. Have a great weekend from everyone at the MTA.
