Dedicated to improving manufacturing efficiency

Plant & Asset Management set to take centre stage in April

The biennial co-located events; Plant and Asset Management, Drives & Controls, Fluid Power & Systems, European Offshore Energy, and Air-Tech Exhibitions – are once again set to return to Birmingham’s NEC  (Halls 3/3A) from 12-14th April 2016, alongside MACH 2016 and National Electronics Week 2016. Collectively the exhibitions will be the largest manufacturing and engineering events of 2016, and will create an unmissable event.

In addition the co-location’s growing international status is now firmly established and can be gauged from the number of exhibitors arriving from as far afield as China, India and the US.

If you want to be at the cutting edge of manufacturing and engineering developments, you can’t afford to miss April’s mega-event at the NEC.

Plant & Asset Management 2016, the UK’s premier event for plant, asset, maintenance and works management engineers and directors, will once again open its doors to showcase the very latest in condition monitoring, computerised maintenance management, outsourcing/contract maintenance, energy efficiency, boilers/burners/combustion, handling and storage plus much more.

Industry spends huge sums of money maintaining its plant, machinery and building assets and, because of constantly increasing business and financial pressures, there is an on-going need to achieve the maximum performance from those assets. The combination of the exhibition and concurrent free seminars really is a one-stop shop for all industrial engineering professionals to source solutions to these problems, with many of the leading companies in the sector represented at the show.

Seminars taken to a new level

The free 2016 seminar and conference programme running alongside the co-location of exhibitions, will be taken to a new level, adding significant value with a more comprehensive speaker programme than ever before, and a strong emphasis on technology, entrepreneurship, skills, regulations, the environment, and safety.

The full programme of free seminars for the co-location, with speakers offering expert insight and practical advice on important and topical issues, will take place across three seminar theatres: The Drives & Controls Seminar Theatre; Fluid Power & Systems Seminar Theatre, and the Maintenance Seminar Theatre.

For the latest information, comprehensive list of seminar speakers and presentation titles please visit the individual show websites. Early registration is recommended.

New for 2016 - exhibition organiser, DFA Media has teamed up with The Industry Entrepreneurship Network (IEN) to put on a series of three panel discussions during the three-day exhibition, which will run alongside DFA Media’s other seminar programme. The three sessions will cover the topics of ‘Bridging the skills gap’ (chaired by Susan Scurlock, CEO, Primary & Secondary Engineer),  ‘Financing innovation and entrepreneurship in industry’ (chaired by Lee Hopley, Chief Economist, EEF), and ‘Developing UK innovation and entrepreneurship’, with panels formed from the network’s membership of established entrepreneurs, industrial companies and leading UK trade, science, education and engineering organisations.
