If you’re a manufacturing professional of any kind looking for new suppliers and finding the right partners, you don’t want to miss out.

Subcon Show 2021

The Subcon Show has proven to be one of the UK’s top subcontract manufacturing supply chain events offering tremendous benefits for manufacturers across the board. The show is the perfect platform for the development and establishment of a framework for manufacturers and engineers who are vendor-independent. It helps develop new partnerships and provides the ideal opportunity to network and compare suppliers.

Thanks to attracting some of the best industry professionals, the Subcon Show features products and services from various companies. The aim is to deliver a benchmark for individuals looking at advanced manufacturing technologies, see what’s available on the market, and make the right investment and purchasing decisions. Whilst the show has a wide coverage, it’s particularly helpful for those in the manufacturing, fabrication, repair and maintenance industries.
