Engineering Design Show exceeds expectations

The 2014 Engineering Design Show attracted over 4,000 engineering professionals to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry between Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd October.

The Show, which this year was co-located with the Electronics Design Show and Embedded Design Show, featured more than 200 exhibitors, more than 50% of whom have already agreed to take part in next year's event. Ed Tranter, executive director of organiser Findlay Media, said: "This year's Show has proved to be an absolute triumph and I want thank everyone involved for making it such a success. The support we have received from industry has been fantastic and enabled us to build a hugely successful event that we can all be very proud of." Alongside the exhibitions, there was also a high level conference programme, which featured speakers from such illustrious companies as Infiniti Red Bull Racing, Rolls-Royce, Gurit, Cambridge Consultants, Millbrook and Morgan Advanced Materials. In addition, a packed workshop programme attracted many visitors keen to get hands-on, practical advice on technology and industry issues. Next year's Show will take place at the Ricoh Arena on 21st and 22nd October 2015. "The success of this year has been immense, and we believe next year can be even better," Tranter concluded. "We look forward to welcoming you there!"
