Auto Aero 2009 showcases specialist engineering suppliers

2008-12-02 06:10:58 – The specialist aerospace and automotive engineering show, Auto Aero returns to FIVE, Farnborough on the February 11th-12th next year. As the only annual specialist event of its kind in the region, Auto Aero 2009 provides the perfect opportunity for high-performance engineering sub-contractors to promote their services to the extremely active UK autosport and aerospace market.

Farnborough was the birthplace of the British aviation industry and with many of the UK’s most important aerospace and autosport businesses still located in the area, Farnborough is the ideal setting for the busy two-day showcase of engineering excellence, featuring some of the UK’s top precision engineering sub-contractors and suppliers. Products and services on display include surface engineering, coatings, composites, low-cost tooling, digital manufacture, engine components, assembly integration and many more.

Now in its second year, Auto Aero 2009 is part of the larger Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show, the South’s number one industrial and engineering event, which last year attracted 450 exhibitors and well over 5000 visitors. Virtually every kind of engineering discipline and manufacturing process is represented at the show, making it a unique opportunity to meet suppliers from every branch of manufacturing industry in one, convenient visit.

Visitors to Auto Aero 2009 can also benefit by participating in the free technical seminar sessions that run over both days of the event. Now virtually an institution in its own right, the free seminar programme is a fantastic opportunity for visitors and exhibitors alike to take part in a wide-ranging programme of presentations, each delivered by experts in their respective fields. No other show offers free access to such high-calibre technical and commercial expertise, and is one reason why the show enjoys such strong support from engineering and industrial businesses across the region.

This year’s seminar programme combines practical advice for businesses in these uncertain times with insights into new trends and ideas that may help engineering enterprises stave-off the worst effects of recession. Clive Lewis will present a presentation entitled ‘Marketing in a Downturn’. During recession, customers are more likely to switch suppliers to seek better value; this session will explain how effective marketing can help you win this new business. Richard Teal from the Manufacturing Advisory Service – South East (MAS-SE) will present a session on ‘Designing Demand’ – how your organisation can become more innovative, more competitive and more profitable through exploiting design opportunities.

‘Carbon Footprinting, Eco-Design and Environmental Legislation’, delivered by the MAS-SE and Rob Holdway, gives a practical overview on the competitive advantages delivered by reducing the supply chain costs and environmental impact of manufacturing enterprise. And for those companies wishing to become a supplier to the automotive and aerospace industries, Clive Lewis will present a session packed with practical tips on how to do achieve their objectives.

Entry to the show and the seminars is completely free to business visitors, and FIVE Farnborough offers plentiful free car parking, superb access by road, rail or air, and an excellent selection of local hotels and restaurants to make your visit as enjoyable as it is productive.
