Findlay Media – which publishes Eureka – is launching the event aimed at manufacturing and engineering professionals in the North East.
MENE is a completely new type of event, with support from the Business Growth Service (which includes the Manufacturing Advisory Service and GrowthAccelerator), North East LEP, Gateshead & Newcastle Inward Investment and the Institution of Engineering Designers.
Ed Tranter (pictured), executive director at Findlay Media, said: "Historically, manufacturing and engineering have been at the heart of the North East's economy and today there are more than 10,000 manufacturing and engineering design sites operating within a 100 mile radius of Newcastle.
"With major manufacturers such as Nissan and Hitachi investing in the region, that manufacturing and engineering legacy is still strong."
He added: "The Manufacturing & Engineering North East event will build on the knowledge and experience of the region, giving both visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to source new suppliers, test equipment, acquire expert knowledge and forge new supply chain relationships. It is an exciting time for the North East and we are looking forward to supporting its ongoing development."
MENE will showcase the region's strengths and provide a platform for local and national manufacturers, engineers and suppliers to meet, learn, solve problems and develop partnerships. It will comprise three key elements covering the full range of design, production and manufacturing:
- Keynote conference sessions from leading engineering and manufacturing businesses.
- Focused technical workshop sessions.
- An exhibition with access to leading suppliers.
