Announcing the launch of the Enabling Innovation hub, in partnership with Magna International, is arguably the UK’s largest dedicated advanced engineering event- ‘Advanced Engineering’. The hub provides a free opportunity for 20 SMEs and innovators to showcase their latest concepts, products and processes to potential partners, investors and buyers from the industry.
Enabling Innovation will take place on the 2nd-3rd November 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham as part of the Advanced Engineering show.
It will provide early stage companies and innovators with a unique and valuable platform to showcase their latest innovations. The companies which secure a space in the hub will be part of a show which features over 700 leading companies from the engineering world and attracts 13,000 engineering professionals. This includes buyers and decision-makers from OEMs and top tier manufacturers.
As part of its support Magna International, one of the world’s premier global automotive suppliers, will also hold a competition during the event where it will award a £5,000 prize to the most innovative and disruptive technology featured within the hub.
Representatives from the Magna Research and Development team will also host one-on-one meetings with innovators to discuss ways to commercialise their ideas.
Katie Crocombe, Event Director commented on the partnership, saying it’s thrilled to be adding, yet another, new element to Advanced Engineering 2016. “We’re constantly looking for ways to support growth of innovation within the industry and the Enabling Innovation hub provides a fantastic opportunity for SMEs to accelerate the commercialisation of their latest technologies.”
She finished by adding: “Advanced Engineering is fast becoming the hub for the industry and I am truly excited about what this year’s show has to offer to attendees and exhibitors!”
