UK manufacturing technology show MACH will return to The NEC for its next three editions through to 2016.

The biennial show has been staged at the Birmingham venue since the facility opened in 1976 and is organised by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA). In a new deal between the two parties announced this week the organiser confirmed dates for 2014 and 2016.

“The show demands a lot of its venue, from flexible space and industrial floor loadings through to high levels of electricity and compressed air supplies, which is required to operate a lot of the machinery on display,” MTA director general Graham Dewhurst explained.

“The NEC has always been able to accommodate these requirements and helped us deliver the showcase event that it is." Dewhurst added the Midlands is also the heart of the British manufacturing industry and a good location for MACH.

The NEC’s MACH account manager Charlotte Careswell said the venue was now looking forward to the centenary MACH event, taking place from 16 to 20 April 2012. The first MACH was held at Earls Court in 1912.

“It’s fantastic to see a show come back to us time and time again when we’re well aware of the competition out there,” Careswell said. “We work hard to build our relationships with customers and this is a testament to that.

Dewhurst said the 2012 event will feature more machines and have increased tooling and sheet metal industry representation as well as a new Sub-Contractor Zone.

MACH is co-located with Drives and Controls, IFPEX (International Fluid and Power) and PAM (Plant Asset Management), organised by DFA media; Independent Power Energy Europe and Electrex, organised by Global Media; and the new National Electronics Week, from New Events. Combined, the eight shows claim to represent the largest event in their sector.
