Why you should attend

Engineering Materials Live is the UK’s focused, specialist advanced materials event for design and production engineers. Here you can keep pace with the latest developments and innovations in engineering materials, one of the fastest moving and quickest changing elements in manufacturing. Whatever your materials requirements are, be they lightweighting, advanced insulation, torsional strength, resistance to twisting moments, fire retardancy, impact resistance, recyclability: here you will meet with the leading experts in metals, plastics and composites as well as moulders, shapers and rapid prototypers of almost every discipline. At Engineering Materials Live you can see, evaluate and discuss all the many materials options for your project in one place at one time.

Here are just a few more reasons why Engineering Materials Live is an excellent investment for your time:

Find an innovative solution – Looking to replace your existing materials with lighter, more cost efficient or better performing alternatives? Seeking an answer to a seemingly insoluble design conundrum on a new project? Visit the event and let industry-leading experts assist. See live demonstrations: many exhibitors will be launching new materials at the event, so you’ll be amongst the first to know about and understand the latest advances in materials technology. Some exhibitors will be conducting live demos in key product areas including plastics, plastics moulding, materials forming, advanced composites, lightweighting and rapid prototyping.
Learn from technical seminars – Often ‘standing-room only’, the Engineering Materials Live seminars focus on the delivery of practical design and production solutions. Actual case studies show how design and production teams have overcome challenges across a variety of applications and industries. Keynote speakers will highlight the latest advances in lightweighting, surface treatment, high temperature materials, how to best evaluate alternative materials options and much more. Meet and talk with the best advanced materials experts in the UK – it is often stated that when it comes to stand staff, this event is the one that the exhibitors send their best engineers to. Their advice is free and their wisdom could prove helpful. Come and ask what they can do for you. Entry to the Seminars is FREE when you pre-register in advance. 
Time-efficient for you and your team – Easy to access to the venue (1 minute from the M40 in the South Midlands, next door to JLR at Gaydon), easy to get into the event, free parking right outside the door, early opening at 08:30. You can get there, get in, get round a focused, specialist event, get materials and forming answers/solutions and get back to work with the minimum of time and fuss
Everything is free – Engineering Materials Live is free to attend, with free parking, free bacon roll and brew if you arrive before 1030, free tea and coffee all day and free entry to the acclaimed British Motor Museum too – it is 30 seconds from the exhibition

See British motoring heritage at first hand. For free. Entry to the acclaimed British Motor Museum provides an exhilarating close-up view of the cars that made this country. Here, thanks to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust you will see at first hand the good, the bad and the ugly in UK automotive history. From global trend setters to total commercial disasters and world beating innovations to woeful failures, you can see them all here. With almost 300 vehicles and over million automotive artefacts to view, you’re in for a fascinating time.

Why exhibit?

Engineering Materials Live is a specialist OEM engineering event showcasing engineering materials and related products and services. Visitors are there for a purpose and are design engineers, production professional and senior manufacturing managers, many of them readers of our own magazines such as Eureka!, FAST, Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology and The Engineer amongst many more. The event uses a refreshingly simple and well-proven roadshow style format that restores some traditional value for exhibitors, with every exhibitor having the same sized stand, and the participation being easily managed by just a single person if required.

Exhibiting companies include providers of : plastics, rubbers, metals, composites, ceramics, alloys, lightweighting solutions, injection moulding, rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing, metal fabricators, design software (simulation, FEA, CFD), materials testing, design consultancy, minerals and natural fibres, sustainable materials, glass, carbon fibre, expanded materials, foams, coatings & finishing, conductive materials, surface treatment.
