“Biggest & best” presence yet for STC members at AES 2020

Silverstone Technology Cluster

2nd June 2020

The Silverstone Technology Cluster will have its “biggest and best” presence yet at this year’s Advanced Engineering Show after agreeing once more to host the event’s VIP Lounge whilst also expanding its Innovation Zone there for member businesses.

2020 will mark the fourth consecutive year that the STC has hosted the VIP Lounge – last year, it attracted 2,500 people, a 40% rise on 2018’s figure.

This year’s Show, at NEC Birmingham, is scheduled to take place on 4-5 November.

The event is recognised as the UK’s largest annual showcase of engineering technology, innovation, and supply chain solutions.

STC CEO Pim van Baarsen commented: “Without doubt, what we have planned will make this the biggest and best attendance at the Show for our members.

“As in 2019, we will have the Innovation Zone adjacent to the VIP Lounge, where this year ten member businesses will be able to showcase their latest technologies. “For 2020, we will also receive enhanced pre-show marketing and improved catering for the VIP Lounge. Speaking slots will also be available. As per usual, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.” He added: “This is a great opportunity to present any business, alongside other STC members, at such a high profile and influential event.

“As well, it is the UK’s only event able to introduce suppliers and buyers to opportunities in familiar and new sectors, and provides networking and new business for more than 15,000 professionals from OEMs and all tiers of the supply chain.”

Jeremy Whittingham, Head of Community and Content at Advanced Engineering said: “We’re delighted once again to welcome the Silverstone Technology Cluster into this November’s Advanced Engineering.

“It’s a reflection not only of Advanced Engineering’s importance as the major catalyst for the ramping up of business and innovation, but is also a demonstration of just how keen the industry is to return to ‘business as usual’ as quickly as possible in the ‘new normal’.

“We are already working closely together to showcase STC members’ technologies and innovations to attendees from all areas of high value manufacturing who, in turn, are preparing to hit the ground running into 2021 and beyond.”
