The team behind the highly successful Engineering Design Show and Subcon is thrilled to announce the long-awaited return of Manufacturing and Engineering North East (MENE). This one-day exhibition is set to take place at the Vertu Motors Arena in Newcastle Upon Tyne on November 30th, 2023.

In a region boasting over 100,000 SME manufacturing sites around Newcastle, there's been a noticeable absence of a dedicated engineering and manufacturing event. This is where MENE steps in. As the only event of its kind in the area, it provides attendees with a unique opportunity to see cutting-edge manufacturing innovations, connect with local and global suppliers, and gain insights from engaging conference sessions — all conveniently located, under one roof.

More than just an exhibition, MENE is a celebration of manufacturing and engineering excellence in the North of the UK. Past exhibitors Igus UK said, “It’s the only exhibition of this nature, in the North East, it’s really good for promoting engineering and business here”. Bowers Group stated that MENE is a great show for "bringing the best of British design engineering and manufacturing talent to Newcastle!".
