As usual, visitors can expect to meet an incredible variety of suppliers; everything from major international machinery manufacturers to specialist components suppliers.  Many of the more familiar names return for 2019, among them well-known industrial component vendors such as igus UK, Wurthe Industry, WDS Components and Acorn Industrial Components. Regular machinery vendors exhibiting once again in 2019 include Bystronic UK, C. Dugard, Matsuura, Haas Automation, CMZ, Yamazaki Mazak and YMT Technologies, plus some notable returnees to the show. Citizen Machinery UK will exhibit for the first time since 2007, joined by other major former exhibitors such as Mitutoyo (UK), SCHMIDT Technology, Filtermist International and LNS Turbo amongst others. New exhibitors for 2019 include control panels and electrical systems from Instrutec Controls and metalworking fluids and management from Oemeta UK.

A new development for 2019 has been the show’s partnership with several highly influential industrial organisations, including Composites UK, the Confederation of British Metalforming, Farnborough Aerospace Consortium, The British Gear Association, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and the Gauge and Toolmakers Association. These partnerships will enable the roll-out of new show features and access to authoritative technical expertise via the show’s comprehensive free technical seminar programme, open to all visitors.

The seminar programme at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics is regarded by many as one of the key features of the show, drawing a large number of delegates each year. Running in two lecture theatres on all three days of the exhibition, the 2019 programme features a notable roster of speakers and subject areas, and is sure to be of interest to anyone engaged in any sort of industrial or manufacturing business. The programme is a complementary mix of technical and business topics addressing an array of issues confronting manufacturing enterprises today. From large scale 3D printing and advanced manufacturing to discussions of life after Brexit for manufacturers, the 2019 programme genuinely offers something for everyone. A complete listing of sessions can be found at To secure your place, simply select the desired sessions during the registration process for show entry.
