Incorporating the specialist automotive / aerospace engineering exhibition


Welcome to Southern

Welcome to the official preview of Southern Manufacturing & Electronics and Auto Aero 2017. Lighter evenings, thanks to new dates in early Spring, coupled with the show’s popular three- day format means more opportunities to see the latest industrial technology and action and meet many of Europe’s top engineering companies in a single event. Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2017 brings together around 800 exhibitors in a purpose-built 18,000m² venue with free entry and free on-site car-parking. No other annual event in the UK offers you the chance to see such an incredible array of machinery, electronics, components, production hardware, automation and specialist engineering services at a single show.

This Preview magazine will give you a glimpse at just a few of the thousands of products and services you’ll find at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2017. At the show, you’ll see the latest machine tools being demonstrated live; every kind of component from connectors, to fixings, up to complete automation solutions and leading engineering sub-contractors from across Europe, providing services from PCB assembly to precision engineering and finishing. There’s every kind of production aid, from hand tools to CAD/CAM software – even industrial furniture, flooring and lighting.
