Besides trade visitors, students also attended the show, having toured the exhibition and experienced a range of hands-on activities at the Education and Development Zone as well – these visitors alone added up to a further 1,529 visitors to Mach 2018, recording a total of 24,654 attendees. The growth of the exhibition and the increase in the complexity of the technology on display also registered 10% more machines than the previous event.

James Selka, MTA CEO said: “It was great to see so many people at Mach 2018. For all those using or supplying manufacturing technology, Mach is the place to do business and keep up to date with the latest technology. That so many people made sure they were there is testament to the strength of exhibition and its place at the heart of UK manufacturing.”

With so many manufacturing technologies supply chain under one roof – represented by just about 5,583 representatives at the booths, it is no surprise that a lot of business was done between exhibiting companies during the show as well.
