Member Resources: MACH

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.

The MMMA metalworking Village’ at MACH 2020 will be the largest area yet taken by the MMMA. It has already exceeded expectations for members attending, with 23 confirmed and more in the pipeline. As the original space for the ‘Metalworking Village’ has been filled, more will be made available as and when requested by members.

The Ballot One draw for MACH 2020 took place last Friday (7th September) and saw stands of over 200 sq m being added to the floor plans for the next edition of the show, which takes place from 20th – 24th April 2020 at the NEC in Birmingham.

After the completion of Ballot One, over 12,500 sq m of space has now been allocated on the floor plans, which can be viewed here.

While a proportion of the space for MACH 2020 is already on general sale, some areas of the halls are only available through our ballot system, ensuring fairness and giving all exhibitors a chance to choose the position which best suits them. Applications are coming in, and after ballot 1 you will be able to see all those exhibitors who have requested space over 200 sq m live on the plans.

With the dust settled on a successful MACH 2018, we are pleased to announce that the new website has launched and the ballot process for MACH 2020 is now open.

The new MACH website now has responsive design to make it even easier to navigate, update and enjoy on mobile devices. The site contains all the latest MACH 2020 news and provides full details of companies exhibiting at the next show.

MACH 2020 takes place 20th – 24th April at the NEC in Birmingham and exhibition space in the Halls for the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies showcase is now available.

We have been made aware that, once again, a number of companies, based abroad, have been offering for sale information purporting to be the MACH 2018 visitor attendee list. We would like to warn all our exhibitors/members that this data is not the genuine information compiled at the show.

The MTA never makes the MACH attendee list available for sale or allows it to be sold on by third party organisations.

The exhibits are in place, the visitors have registered and MACH 2018 officially opens on Monday 9th April at NEC in Birmingham.

MACH 2018 is set to be even bigger and better than before, with more manufacturing technologies under one roof. With a new look and location, excitement for the UK’s premier advanced engineering showcase has reached fever pitch.
