Manufacturing industry gets set for quartet of events

REGISTRATION is open for four major industry events, scheduled to take place at the NEC Birmingham later this month.

PPMA and Rapid News Group have announced they are teaming up to offer visitors full access to the quartet of exhibitions. The PPMA Show will be co-located with Rapid News Group’s Interplas, Med-Tech Innovation Expo and TCT 3Sixty from September 28-30.

David Harrison, chief operating officer at PPMA Group of Associations said, “Our industry has been working overtime during the last 18 months to keep the supply chain moving and coming together once again as the biggest group of industry experts at the end of September is so needed.

“We are looking forward to opening the doors to the show once again and creating the space for innovation, technology, business and conversation to flourish.”

Organisers of all four events have been working with the NEC and event industry bodies to develop Covid-secure guidelines in a bid to provide safe opportunities to network, learn and build connections.

Duncan Wood, chief executive at Rapid News Group, added, “We cannot wait to re-open the doors to welcome back our exhibitors, speakers and attendees. By giving visitors access to all four events with one badge, they can see a wide spectrum of innovation in the manufacturing industry in one place, alongside a world-class multi-stage conference programme.

“Thousands of visitors have registered to attend, showing that the manufacturing community has missed the opportunity to interact in a live environment. We are looking forward to presenting more than 1,000 exhibitors across the five halls. 1,000 reasons to come and join us!”

PPMA Show is focused on processing and packaging machinery, robotics and industrial vision. Interplas is concentrated on plastics. TCT 3Sixty is the event for 3D printing and additive manufacturing. And Med-Tech Innovation Expo is a medical design and manufacturing technology exhibition.
