Eight UK manufacturing exhibitions organised by four different organisers will co-locate in 2012 to form the largest event in its sector.
Together, the exhibitions will occupy 37,000sqm at the NEC Birmingham. Organisers anticipate 33,000 visitors.
Cooperating organisers include NEW Events, DFA Media, Global Media and the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA).
NEW Events organises National Electronics Week UK (NEW:UK), which this year took place from 12 to 13 April at the NEC Pavilion. MTA organises MACH; DFA organises Drives and Controls, Air-Tech, Ifpex, and Plant and Asset Management. Global Media organises Electrex and the Independent Power, Energy and Electric Expo.
The events will run together on 18 and 19 April 2012.
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
