Wednesday marked the start of the Engineering Design Show. EDS is an Expo that spans over 2 days attracting Manufacturers and suppliers from near and far.
This was my first time attending the show as last time round I was committed to a large rail project which made it difficult to leave HQ. I was granted clearance this year which was a great honour!
John and Kerry were also representing Nemacom on this trip. After a short drive to Coventry and arriving at the Ricoh Arena I began to understand the sheer scale of the event.
When first entering through the doors to the expo you are immediately stuck by colourful exhibits and cutting edge tech!
No exhibit failed to impress. All were keen to showcase their incredible demonstrations and latest products!
We were blessed with the sights of submersible electronics and enclosures, Huge automated robotics and a 3D Printed Car big enough to seat a person though sadly sitting in the vehicle was not permitted.
The event also gave us the opportunity to participate in activities such as games and have hands on experience with the tech.
John tried his arm on a Wire-Loop Beep Game which was great fun to watch! Unfortunately though, he could not get close to the seemingly superhuman time set by a previous challenger.
Between activities and displays we had chance to catch up with our contacts and suppliers. We also managed to meet a good range of potential future suppliers!

Overall our attendance was a success.
It is easy to see why the show is such a successful event and attracts so many businesses.
I’d say its the perfect way to network and showcase your products in a friendly, engaging environment.
I hope to see you all next year!
