Why exhibit?

Make Measurement Matter is UK manufacturing industry’s only focused, specialist event covering the many metrology and precision measurement options available from leading GTMA Members. Visitors are only there because they are personally active in manufacturing industry using a variety of processes which involve precision measurement and metrology. Here, unlike anywhere else, visitors will learn and achieve more in a few hours face-to-face than they ever will with alternative searching and sourcing. So if your business is a GTMA Member you can exhibit and meet manufacturing professionals from all industries who have made a journey to the event for one purpose: discovering new and better ways of measuring and calibrating both production machinery and end products. That is why you should exhibit. You won’t find a more concentrated pool of potential prospects like it anywhere else.

The unique ‘Roadshow’ style of Make Measurement Matter involves small, inexpensive, professionally erected stands. Every exhibitor is a GTMA Member and has the same sized stand with no exceptions. So all Members have equal opportunities, with no chance at all of any upward cost spiralling. All stands are shell schemes with fascias and name boards. For convenience, exhibitors can prepare their stands on the afternoon or evening before the event, or on the morning of the show itself. This is a sensibly-priced, low-effort opportunity that is 100% focused on metrology and precision measurement in manufacturing. The only visitors there will be OEMs sufficiently motivated to come and talk solely about how they might do things better. If you’re an expert in the field, then you should book a stand and show these visitors exactly what you can do.
