Manufacturing Trade Shows You Simply Have To be at in 2020
Boost awareness, leads and sales for your brand by attending one of the leading manufacturing trade shows in 2020.
Trade shows are the perfect setting to grow awareness of both your business and brand. It is a chance to show customers how your products solve their problems. The delegates at these shows and exhibitions are all potential leads and future customers.
As you pack up after a trade show you should have an ipad full of new contacts signed up to your newsletter and promotional emails.
If your brand is in manufacturing, here’s a few of the best shows to be seen at in 2020:
This takes place on 25th February at the QEII centre in London. With a host of engaging speakers, including Andrew Neil and Steph McGovern, the conference is focussed on business entering the new decade and being prepared for the rapidly changing manufacturing environment. There will be opportunities to network with peers and key, influential figures from the world of manufacturing. Several interactive workshops will be running, offering essential skills sharing and brainstorming.
The southern show is happening on 11th-13th February in Farnborough, whilst the northern show happens on 7th & 8th October in Manchester. These are big shows, with mind boggling numbers of visitors. The cost of exhibiting may also be eye watering, but the exposure will definitely be worth it. Industries which are well represented include aerospace, automotive, production, electronics assembly, industrial machinery, packaging, handling, marine engineering and metal processing.
Further exposure from the impressive preview magazines is also worth the investment.
If your brand has any link at all to the 3D printing or additive intelligence industry, then be at the NEC in Birmingham on 29th September to 1st October 2020. The explosion in 3D printing technology has created a whole new world of spin off businesses. Whether you develop software, 3D printing tools, or any other development in this new take on manufacturing, this is the show for you.
The UK is in the top 3 countries for 3D printing development and the sector is predicted to be worth £3.5bn in the UK by 2025. Focussing on showing the new technologies in real world scenarios, TCT3Sixty is where you should be exhibiting how your brand and showing how your products will make your customers’ lives simpler and solve their problems.
Also at the NEC (on 9th – 11th June) is the UK’s premier trade show aimed at the manufacturing subcontractor sector. Previous exhibitors, from industries including automotive, aerospace, electronics, materials, energy, rail, oil & gas, defence and security, have all reported a marked increase in leads and sales after attending. SubCon is a chance to develop new partnerships throughout the supply and manufacturing chain. Industry leaders will be on hand to talk you through the processes of using (or being) a subcontractor.
If your brand is in manufacturing, there are exhibitions of all sizes and stature which may be worth including in your promotional plan for 2020.
