Innovative Start-ups Given Free Platform at Advanced Engineering 2016
01 Sep 2016
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Enabling Innovation hub, in partnership with Magna International. The hub provides a free opportunity for 20 SMEs and innovators to showcase their latest concepts, products and processes to potential partners, investors and buyers from the industry.
Enabling Innovation will take place on the 2 & 3 November 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham as part of Advanced Engineering 2016. It will provide early stage companies and innovators with a unique and valuable platform to showcase their latest innovations. The companies which secure a space in the hub will be part of a show which features over 700 leading companies from the engineering world and attracts 13,000 engineering professionals. This includes buyers and decision-makers from OEMs and top tier manufacturers.
As part of its support Magna International, one of the world's premier global automotive suppliers, will also hold a competition during the event where it will award a £5,000 prize to the most innovative and disruptive technology featured within the hub.
Representatives from the Magna Research and Development team will also host one on one meetings with innovators to discuss ways to commercialise their ideas.
