Subcon 2017 - A show designed around your needs; we’ve rolled out a number of initiatives to ensure that you have the very best experience prior to, and on the day of your visit. Our search facility on the online exhibitor listings will allow you to plan your day better, and the new Buyers Programme will also allow you to arrange meetings with suppliers before you arrive.
Subcon is the focus for manufacturing procurement teams from both OEMs and tiered suppliers to benchmark subcontracting capacity and capabilities in order to refine their supply chain.
As a pre-registered visitor, following your visit to the show, you will be sent a copy of the Industry Trend Report, this summarises the findings of a recent survey undertaken by Subcon and The Engineer and asks the UK manufacturing industry about their thoughts on the challenges facing the industry, including Brexit, the skills shortage, diversity and Industry 4.0.
"We had a great day yesterday. The morning was exceptionally busy for us – a good start to the show. This is our second year at Subcon and we have won good business from being here last year. It works for us and is good value for money."
"We were really impressed with Subcon. For us the footfall was pretty good, particularly on the second and third days.The quality of visitors was excellent and we were speaking to people who were interested in both our manufacturing services and our standard fasteners. There were people there we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Some of them were companies not far away from us that hadn't heard of us and were interested in us quoting for them. Some of these leads have already come to fruition."
"An excellent exhibition for subcontractors."
"A useful event to meet a collection of potential supply and development partners, to enable a better, more efficient future-state solution set, for component manufacturing through to complete end-user products."
