Southern Manufacturing achieves attendance record

Last month’s Southern Manufacturing 2019 achieved a new record attendance, according to figures released by the organisers.

The show received a total of 8644 unique visitors, an increase of around 13% on the previous year. Some 800 companies from all over the world took part in the event, occupying all the available exhibition space of the recently-opened 20,000 sq m Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Exit polls reveal that visitor interests remained broadly consistent with previous years, but with interest in automation and robotics, machine tools, tooling, and inspection systems all showing positive growth. There was also heightened interest in the full range of subcontract services present at the show, including contract fabrication, machining, laser processing and plastics. Southern Manufacturing returns to Farnborough International on 11-13 February 2020.
