Nov 8, 2019 | News

MKP Group successfully exhibited again at the Advanced Engineering Show (30th-31st Oct 2019).

Held at the NEC in Birmingham, Advanced Engineering is an extremely well-established event within the engineering industry’s calendar.

Bringing together thousands of attendees from OEM’s, tier 1 manufacturers and supply chain partners, the show provides an unparalleled opportunity to connect with key contacts and also establish new links, both within the supply chain and more importantly with prospective new customers.

Having exhibited at the event for the previous 2 years, MKP Group was keen to promote all facets of its business and with new promotional material, was keen to get this out into the market.

Lee Deller, Operations Director, reported a positive message back from the event; “The footfall onto the stand was good across the 2 days. We’d have liked a few more prospective customer opportunities, but it was great to catch up with some current contacts at our key partners such as Aston Martin and Bentley to name a few. It was also really interesting to see what else is going on within the industry. Some of the technology on display across the stands was fascinating.”

MKP at the Advanced Engineering Show 2017
MKP displayed a number of its products, ranging from prestige car brand brightware, to intricate pressings and fabrications. The stand also exhibited a locker display from its Maine Office range, employing sophisticated Gantner keycard locks. The size of some of the pressings/assemblies and also the wide variety of products offered by the Group was noted by a number of visitors to the stand.

Marketing Coordinator fo MKP Group Candace Read was keen to show the value of the show; “Its vitally important for the visibility of the Group to exhibit at events like the Advanced Engineering Show. As well as generating potential leads, it also ensures the MKP name is maintained in the industry. Displaying items like the brightware, which has been produced from specialised tooling manufactured within the Group, shows the scope of products we can offer, as well as the skills employed. We look forward to exhibiting at future industry shows.
