MACH exhibition is postponed

By John Corser | Business Events | Published:

The Manufacturing Technologies Association, which owns and runs the MACH exhibition on behalf of the industry, has taken the decision to reschedule it from April to January due to the spread of coronavirus.

Given the spread of the Coronavirus, the MTA has decided that, in order to minimise the risks to visitors and exhibitors and to provide the best possible platform for both exhibitors and visitors, the event will now take place from January 25 to 28 in the same halls at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre.

MACH is the UK’s largest manufacturing trade event and the MTA has decided that, in order to minimise the risks to visitors and exhibitors and to provide the best possible platform for both exhibitors and visitors, it will be postponed.

James Selka, MTA chief executive, said: “We believe that this decision, which has not been taken lightly, is in the best interests of the industry and those who work in it. Our first priority is, of course, the health and safety of the 30,000 plus people who will visit and work at MACH. In addition, we believe that by moving MACH to January 2021 we are going to be able to offer a better experience for our visitors, and better value for our exhibitors, than by holding it in April under the conditions likely to be in place at that time.

“We are grateful to the NEC for working with us to identify an option which we believe will work for the vast majority of our exhibitors and will give our visitors a great chance to see the best of advanced manufacturing technology under one roof.”

All exhibitors that had booked for MACH in April will be offered the same stand space at the event held on the new dates. The MTA team is contacting all 550 exhibitors directly to discuss their participation.
