With a little under two weeks before the 2022 Subcon Show kicks off at the NEC in Birmingham from 7 – 9 June, PRV Engineering is gearing up for another successful event. While we’ve attended numerous Subcon shows over the years, which have all been brilliant, everyone is anticipating something special in its 45th year.

Here’s what CEO Simon Jones had to say about why PRV continues to visit the Subcon Show year after year.

“We feel that by being part of Subcon, we can showcase our advancement, our new products, our equipment and development. On top of that, attending the show enables me to look for customers to add to our portfolio. Ones where we can add value and grow with them.”

What Is The Subcon Show?

The Subcon Show is the UK’s only event solely focused on contract and subcontract manufacturing. This includes machining, moulding, fabrication, electronics assembly, casting and forging, finishing and treatments. The show enables buyers, specifiers and decision-makers from all industry sectors to network and creates potential opportunities.

By attracting some of the best industry professionals, the Subcon Show features products and services from leading companies across the globe. The goal is to:

  • deliver a benchmark for people looking at advanced manufacturing technologies
  • see what’s available on the market
  • 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. It helps attendees compare suppliers, source solutions, develop partnerships and ultimately, do business in one place.

Benefit From Three Shows-In-One

Since the incredible success of previous years, 2022 will once again see three shows in one place. These are the Subcon Show, The Advanced Manufacturing Show and The Engineer Design & Innovation Show. Combined, they will produce an exceptional and relevant event for the manufacturing and engineering sector.

It will bring together the finest suppliers, most recent technologies, and hands-on advice to help entrepreneurs develop new relationships and improve business methods. All visitors will benefit from free access to all three shows when registering for any of the events.

For the first time, the Subcon Show presents the Supply Chain Theatre which will deliver all the content you need in relation to supply chains. Here, you will learn:

  • how to keep up with consumer demand
  • how to mitigate labour shortages and rising labour costs
  • and more (click here to see the programme)
