Given the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has decided that, to minimise the risks to visitors and exhibitors and to provide the best platform for exhibitors and visitors, the MACH exhibition will now take place from 25-28 January 2021. The event will still be held in the same halls at the NEC in Birmingham (UK).
Attracting 25,000 visitors and over 600 exhibitors, MACH connects UK manufacturing engineers, decision-makers, buyers and specifiers with suppliers of new technology, equipment, services and processes. It is owned and organised by The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA).
James Selka, MTA CEO, 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+ 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.”
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.
