Countdown to the UK’s leading production line event begins

The PPMA Show to celebrate its 30th anniversary at the NEC Birmingham 25-27 September 2018

In light of Nick Peters’, author of the Annual Manufacturing report 2018, comment that “UK manufacturing has come a long way in recent years, as we have seen from their stellar performance in 2017,” it’s no surprise that the PPMA Show is gearing up for its biggest show to date when it returns to the NEC, Birmingham, between 25-27 September 2018.

Set to fill the halls of the NEC with demonstrations of the most technologically-advanced processing and packaging machinery the world has to offer, the UK’s leading production line event will provide the platform for thousands of food, pharmaceuticals, toiletries and FMCG manufacturers to explore the latest innovations and do business live from the show floor.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the PPMA Show will welcome the return of some of the industry’s major players for its milestone event such as Baumer. The automated image processing specialist will join the exhibition for the first time since 2014, armed with its latest range of intelligent HeavyDuty encoders.

In a revamp of the original Learning Hub format, the PPMA Show 2018 will also hone its educational programme. A high profile industry speaker, to be confirmed in the coming months, will open the show and deliver an insightful address, followed by a smaller line-up of thought leaders sharing their industry knowledge in focused sessions over the three days of the show.

As well as the chance to see working machinery in action, the PPMA Show 2018 will offer enhanced networking opportunities through dedicated meeting spaces around the show.

Rewarding the hard work and innovation seen throughout the past year, the prestigious PPMA Group Awards will once again take place alongside the event. Returning to the first night of the PPMA Show the glittering ceremony and gala dinner is set to be bigger and better than ever – watch out for exciting news to be announced in the coming months.

Zoe Crockett, Marketing Manager, PPMA Group, said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 30th anniversary with a completely new look and fresh new ideas for the 2018 Show. We’ve listened carefully to visitor feedback for more networking opportunities and devised a format that will ensure even the most time-poor visitors have the chance to meet, share knowledge and make new business contacts. Roll on September!”
