The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub will be returning this year to exhibit at the Advanced Engineering Show, taking place on 1 – 2 November 2023 at the NEC, Birmingham.
The Hub will be located in Hall 3A, on Stand X168. Attendees can visit the team and speak with our Business Development Manager; Dr Simon Quinn.
The show is the UK’s largest annual gathering of the engineering and manufacturing community of professionals. With over 400+ exhibitors across all sectors, it creates the opportunity to network, build connections and learn about industry development.

The annual SAMPE Design and Make Competition, supported by the Hub will also take place at the AE show on 1st November.
The objective is to design and manufacture a scaled single-deck composite footbridge to support a central load, using creativity and composites manufacturing knowledge. The design process of the bridge will require extensive research into different cross-sectional designs to identify the one with the highest failure load relative to the weight.
The event is sponsored by SHD Composites, Instron UK and the National Composites Centre, with a prize being awarded to the team
with the winning structure. There are eight teams participating in the competition, ranging from academia and industry. It will be an interesting competition – we hope to see you there!
