Thank you for attending!

Thank you to everyone who attended Subcon this year as we celebrated our 45th birthday! The show's longevity is a testament to the high-quality content and the variety of UK and international exhibitors it provides.

We hope you all had an engaging and beneficial experience sourcing new products, innovations and solutions from our world-class line up of exhibitors and speakers.

see you next year!

We've already kickstarted work for next years show, and we're so excited to welcome you back to the UK’s premier subcontract manufacturing supply chain show in 2023!

Subcon will once again feature The Engineer Expo and the very popular Manufacturing Management Show, but this year will also feature the Advanced Manufacturing Show. These four unique shows will deliver a unique and relevant event for the whole manufacturing ecosystem. Bringing the best suppliers, latest innovations and practical advice to help build new partnerships and optimize business strategies.

The show will take place on 7-8 June 2023. All visitors will benefit from free access to all four events.

Once again the Subcon show impressed with a good mix of exhibitors and visitors. I was able to network with suppliers and customers alike and source potential new business.

Darren Pearson, Director, Gee Graphite Ltd

Subcon provided an excellent day out meeting potential new suppliers and seeing new innovations. After all not everything can be done online or via Zoom.

Matt Nichols, Business Systems Manager, Wentworth Wooden Puzzles

Superb show, good companies, good interaction with the companies. Can't ask for more

Sally Barlow, Director, Barlow's Farming Ltd

There was a myriad of businesses (Local, National and International) to talk with, and it was gratifying to engage with a number of companies who may be a suitable fit and, with whom, we will continue to liaise and hopefully make part of our supply chain. Conference sessions were also available at the show on specific topics which gave another dimension to the day (and a chance to sit down (socially distanced of course) and save a bit of shoe leather). A well organized event and a great location.

Teresa Sykes, Head of Procurement, Simworx Ltd

An excellent exhibition with current relevance to industry.

Greg Hodge, BDM, Premier Group Manufacturing (Coventry) Ltd

Through our association with Qimtek at Subcon 2021 we have already turned over in excess of £500 000.00 with three clients found at the conference, and the forecast for the rest of 2022 is over £ 1m in new sales. Contracts Engineering Ltd highly recommend Qimtek.
