After 4 long years, MACH 2022 finally returned to the NEC in Birmingham. Kicking off on the 4th of April with a keynote from Katherine Bennett, CEO of the HVM Catapult, the event continued for the remainder of that week allowing time for attendees to attempt to visit over 500 exhibitors who were showcasing various engineering-based manufacturing technologies throughout the many halls of the exhibition centre. In parallel, the seminar programme and presentations at the impressive AMRC stand also proved popular with delegates.

The Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing hub, along with the Future Metrology Hub, MAPP Hub and Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub shared an EPSRC stand within the Education and Development Zone which aimed to inspire the next generation of engineers. Throughout that week, the stand was manned by different members of the FEMM Hub team with many useful conversations had by all. We look forward to visiting the next MACH which is taking place on the 15 -19th of April 2024.
