Thank you for exhibiting at MACH 2024, the UK’s premier event for the manufacturing technologies sector.  As organisers of the show, we would be very grateful if you – as our customer – could complete this survey regarding the various aspects of exhibiting at MACH.  It is important to us to receive your feedback so we can take it into account when planning future exhibitions.  The survey results will also be used by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) to direct policy and any other forthcoming events.

We have tried to make the survey both easy to complete and comprehensive.  Please answer as many questions as you can, leaving out those which are not relevant, or that you cannot answer.

The survey is carried out in confidence and individual responses will only be available to the MTA staff named below.  However, where relevant, written comments will be matched with stand numbers to identify issues which may be applicable to specific areas of the exhibition.

Thank you in advance for your time and feedback.
