The Engineering Design Shows (EDS) have reported record visitor numbers for the fifth year in a row, according to the show’s organisers MA Exhibitions.

Running from 19-20 October at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Coventry, the shows brought together more than 4200 design engineering professionals to what has now become a show that has established itself as the showcase of British innovation.

Over two days the event played host to 23 conference sessions and panel discussions with engineering design experts, including, JCB, BAE Systems, Raspberry Pi, Visteon, Cambridge Consultants and Oxford Space Systems.Many of the sessions were standing room only. In addition, the exhibition housed three workshop theatres open to visitors wanting to learn new skills or take away practical design tips and expert advice.

“The 2016 Engineering Design Shows have once again proved hugely successful; the visitor numbers increased on last year and the events housed the greatest number of exhibitors to date, over 80% of which have confirmed their stand space again for next year. We now have a waiting list for exhibition space at the 2017 event,” said Ed Tranter, managing director of organiser, MA Exhibitions.“We have been overwhelmed by the industry support for EDS and look forward to creating an even bigger and better experience for our visitors in 2017.”

The Engineering Design group of shows has also secured continued support from its headline sponsors, Altium, IC Blue, Mentor Graphics, Premier EDA Solutions and RS Components.

The Engineering Design Shows will run at the Ericsson Exhibition Halls, Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 18th – 19th October 2017.
