Last week, Kanya UK exhibited at the Mach Show, held at the NEC Birmingham. Being our first time exhibiting at this event, and at short notice, we took up the challenge, joining the other 600 companies exhibiting there. What a show it turned out to be! Here are our Mach Show 2018 Highlights.
Spread over 5 days, there was something for anyone interested in manufacturing. The event was reported to have been attended by over 25,000 visitors in the previous event in 2016, and visitor numbers were set to top that.
Some great publicity surrounded the event, as Ben Ainslie opened the exhibition. Another highlight was a feature on BBC Breakfast Business News. News correspondent Steph McGovern, a former engineering apprentice for Black & Decker, presented her slot live from the Education and Development Zone at the exhibition on day 2. One of the key features of MACH 2018 from previous years, was the Education and Development Zone. This attracted a stream of young people of both genders throughout the week, but especially on the Friday, which was the day designated to focus on careers.
For Kanya UK, we demonstrated our electric height adjustable workbench example at stand H30-838 and came armed with samples and accessories for our visitors to tinker with.
It was good to see some of our clients also exhibiting at the event. Fanuc, in particular, were demonstrating a robot enclosure, constructed using the Kanya aluminium build system (see photo below).
So thank you to all those who visited our stand last week. And if we haven’t got in touch with you yet, please bear with us, we will be!
