MA Exhibitions Limited, which owns and runs Subcon, The Engineer Expo and The Manufacturing Management Show, have taken the decision to reschedule the event from 26 - 28 January to 14 - 16 September 2021, running in Hall 12 at the NEC Birmingham

As organisers, our ongoing priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our exhibitors, visitors and staff. We believe that the new September 2021 dates will enable us to deliver the best possible event experience for everyone involved.

All existing exhibitor bookings will be automatically transferred to the new dates and a member of the team will be in touch over the coming days to discuss any questions you might have.

In addition, we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new virtual event, taking place 9 - 11 February, designed to help keep you connected and engaged with our audience in the absence of the live show - Full details will be announced shortly.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the show’s partners for their ongoing understanding and we look forward to working with you in delivering an outstanding event in September 2021.
