We are aware of a number of emails being sent to our members and exhibitors purporting to have MACH and/or MTA lists for sale. They have started using the MACH logo and emails are written as if they are from the MTA. 

Please be aware we do not share data with anyone and these companies are not related to the MTA in any way.  We have reported these to Fraud Aware.

If ever you are in doubt about the authenticity of any communication from the MTA please feel free to contact us.

Following on from our online session on marketing your presence at MACH 2022 (which can be viewed Here if you missed it) we are holding our next session focusing on operations at 11.00am on Tuesday 11th January.

This hour-long seminar will focus on the following topics:

Whilst MACH 2022 Preview Week is drawing to a close, it doesn’t mean you can’t still access the great content we’ve had this week.

You will be able to access the system from now right the way up until the show.  This means you can check out our ever growing A-Z of exhibitors and search by product type.  Once you create an account, you’ll be able to favourite these and access recordings of all of the great seminars we’ve had this week.

We are aware of a number of emails being sent to our members purporting to have MACH and/or MTA lists for sale.  Please be aware we do not share data with anyone and these companies are not related to the MTA in anyway.  We have reported these to Fraud Aware.

We have taken the decision to reschedule MACH from January 2021 to April 2022.

On the week when we should be celebrating the opening of MACH 2020, so fate has conspired to put an almost insurmountable obstacle in our way. Just as the halls of the NEC in Birmingham should be thronged with visitors all eager to view the latest product offering from the manufacturing technologies sector, so the venue is serving a much higher purpose and we each find ourselves reflecting that some things are more important than business.

The use of robotic automation in improving efficiency has been one of the cornerstones of Industry 4.0 but many firms in the manufacturing and engineering sectors are still unaware of the cost-effectiveness of the technology in helping to overcome the productivity challenge.

Robotics companies exhibiting at MACH 2020 will be demonstrating the benefits such technology can offer businesses – large and small – and how quickly a return on investment can be achieved.

As we move into an increasingly digitalised manufacturing environment, the role of metrology becomes more and more central as it provides the bridge between the physical and digitalised worlds.

Additive manufacturing has now broken out of the world of prototyping and will be featured at MACH 2020 as a production tool in its own right. New materials, new applications, improved processes and a growing role for additive manufacturing as a productivity tool in traditional production lines, will be key themes at the show.

We understand that exhibiting represents a serious investment of resources and we want to help our exhibitors get the best possible return from their time at MACH 2020. To help you we will be holding our 'Exhibitor Day' at the NEC on 1st November 2019, the programme is designed to provide exhibitors with key information, give them an opportunity to meet and quiz our suppliers and find out about new technology and opportunities at the show.
