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.

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 machexhibition.com 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.
