Leading Advanced Materials Show a Resounding Success

The Advanced Materials Show 2019, hosted at the International Centre Telford last week welcomed 1,546 visitors to the two-day exhibition and conference and was hailed a resounding success by exhibitors, visitors and speakers in attendance.

James Baker from the University of Manchester, the home of Graphene said “The Advanced Materials Show has brought together the whole eco-system of the supply chain of companies that integrate materials into their products with end-users who make those products into aircraft, vehicles or electronic devices. The show brings that community together to discuss how we might do that in a more collaborative and creative way to make a real difference to the UK economy.”

Exhibitors at the show included Cerion Nanomaterials,3MKyocera,CDS Group and William Blythe to name a few.

The 166 exhibitors at the show spoke to a variety of different job roles including Engineers, Scientists and leaders in R&D representing a number of different industries including AutomotiveAerospace, ConstructionMarineEnergyElectronicsMedical, Sports Equipment and Defence. The overarching feedback from exhibitors and speakers at the show was about the quality of visitors and the variety of different industries represented.

The conference sessions, many of which were standing room only, had speakers from leading organisations in the UK and globally who are responsible for some of the biggest investments in advanced material research and development. Sessions included Innovations in LightweightingGraphene & 2D Materials Industry Snapshot: Success Stories and Challenges and Processing and Manufacturing Nanomaterials at Commercial Scale.

Alex Oliver, Event Director said

“We were absolutely thrilled at the response to the inaugural Advanced Materials Show. The volume of quality visitors to the show far surpassed our expectations and we are looking forward to an even bigger exhibition and conference in 2020.”

Landon Mertz, CEO of Cerion and one of the exhibitors at The Advanced Materials Show commented

“My experience at The Advanced Materials Show has been fantastic, we’ve spoken primarily to large organisations looking to use advanced materials to bring a performance advantage. We’ve already signed up for the 2020 show.”

The Advanced Materials Show 2020, will take place on the 8th and 9th July at an exciting new venue; The NAEC Stoneleigh. The 2020 show will be co-located with two brand new events, Battery Cells & Systems Expo and Vehicle Electrification Expo. For more information about these events please visit:
