Registration for Subcon 2021 is open, heralding a return to business events and reinforcing the value of meeting face to face for the UK’s manufacturing and engineering sectors.

Taking place at Birmingham’s NEC on 14 – 16 September 2021, Subcon’s headline sponsors are IAMP and SCS Concept Group and 80 per cent of stand space has been sold, with the likes of Hoffman Group UK, Wilson Process Systems, Oldham Engineering confirmed to exhibit.

Visitors also gain free-of-charge access to The Engineer Expo and – new for 2021 – Manufacturing Management Show. The UK’s leading subcontract manufacturing supply chain show comes at a pivotal time as businesses of all sizes recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and adjust to operating outside the EU.

In addition to the exhibition, Manufacturing Management is curating a three-day conference which will see panel discussions and keynote addresses from Make UK CEO Stephen Phipson, Made in Britain CEO John Pearce and many more.

Gordon Kirk, Subcon event director, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Subcon back this September and provide a long overdue opportunity for UK manufacturing to meet face to face once again.

“The past 18-months has been unprecedented and Subcon will shine a light on the untold challenges and opportunities this industry is facing, including the supply chain disruption caused by the pandemic and how that has served to highlight the true value of a reliable, local supply chain offering short lead time and better quality.

“This year the show presents a timely and unique platform for any UK manufacturers looking to source or develop a robust and localised network of UK supply chain partners. We are also excited to champion innovators and start-ups and celebrate the engineering heroes whose ingenuity makes such a valuable contribution to the UK, particularly throughout the pandemic.”

The event will be run in accordance with Government guidance on COVID-19, ensuring a safe and comfortable environment.
