The Engineering Design Show events, which include the Electronics Design Show and the Embedded Design Show attracted record visitor numbers for the fifth year in a row. This year, the event attracted more than 4200 engineering professionals, providing that it is possible to run a successful show in the UK.

Engineering Design Show 2016With 23 conference sessions and panel discussions with engineering design experts from companies such as JCB, BAE Systems, Raspberry Pi, Visteon, Cambridge Consultants and Oxford Space Systems, as well as three workshop theatres, the event provided some great technical content. The event also attracted five major headline sponsors: Altium, IC Blue, Mentor Graphics, Premier EDA Solutions and RS Components.

With increased attendance and a strong educational programme, the event was clearly a great success, despite the challenges of getting UK engineers to leave their desks and attend a show.

“The 2016 Engineering Design Shows have once again proved hugely successful; the visitor numbers increased on last year and the events housed the greatest number of exhibitors to date, over 80% of which have confirmed their stand space again for next year. We now have a waiting list for exhibition space at the 2017 event,” said Ed Tranter, managing director of organiser, MA Exhibitions. “We have been overwhelmed by the industry support for EDS and look forward to creating an even bigger and better experience for our visitors in 2017.”

The Engineering Design group of shows has also secured continued support from its headline sponsors,
The Engineering Design Shows will run at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 18th – 19th October 2017.
