The Engineering Design Show to be postponed until 19 - 20 October 2021

MA Exhibitions Limited, which owns and runs The Engineering Design Show, have taken the decision to reschedule the event from 31 March – 1 April to 19 – 20 October 2021, remaining at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry

As organisers, our ongoing priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our exhibitors, visitors and staff. We believe that the new October 2021 dates will enable us to deliver the best possible event experience for everyone involved.

All existing exhibitor bookings will be automatically transferred to the new dates and a member of the team will be in touch over the coming days to discuss any questions you might have. We will be using the additional time afforded to us by this postponement to identify any areas where we can continue improve the event for future editions. To this end, we are creating an event advisory board, to help ensure that the future direction of the show is shaped exclusively for the industry, by the industry.

In addition, we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new virtual event, taking place on the planned show dates of 31 March – 1 April. This event has been designed to help keep you connected and engaged with our audience in the absence of the live show and we look forward to sharing full details of how you can get involved shortly.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the show’s partners for their ongoing understanding and we look forward to working with you in delivering an outstanding event in 2021.

Got a lot out of the show and could have easily spent more time/an extra day there, had it been possible logistically.

Paul Bryce

I think it's useful for colleagues to see what's available on a regular basis.

Caroline Harding

I was surprised by the number of potential/current suppliers to our business (electronics manufacturer) and able to rediscover their portfolio and offers. Needed more time to explore further.

Pascal Roux

One of the best shows for Engineers and Designers.

Alan Sobha

A nicely laid out exhibition in a pleasant and easily accessible venue, with a good range and quality of exhibitors.

Robert Evans

An excellent place to meet existing suppliers, find new suppliers and keep up to date on the latest industry trends and technologies.

Aaron Lockton

As an electronic and product designer, the show provided an invaluable overview of what is possible in the industry. In our age of information technology, you still cannot overlook the value of talking to another human face-to-face when looking for solutions and ideas, which ultimately benefits everybody.

Paul Bryce

Engaging in dialog with multiple business partners spread across the country is time consuming and challenging, having a range of suppliers, possible suppliers and prospects in one location is highly effective.

Great chance to see a lot of innovation and network with a good range of contacts. Excellent presentations in the conference track.

Great venue and organisation, coming back next year!

Most of the things you can find on the internet, however, here you can ask questions, talk to people and also see & try new products.

The Engineering Design Show is a helpful concentration of vendors of many kinds, making it a one-stop-shop to communicate with existing suppliers, find new ones, and generally network for information.

Paul Callan

This show has become the go to event for the industry.

Graham Coleman

Useful for discovering potential new suppliers, business partners and networking. Also useful for making personal contact with exhibitors rather than working exclusively via email and telephone.

David Barrass

When you work in a field which has a wide range of new products, seeing what's on offer could give you the inspiration you need to be innovative.

Caroline Harding

We consider the Engineering Design Show the most important show that we exhibit at over the year.

The Engineering Design Show is a well focused exhibition that delivers results. It is ideally located with good access and free parking, making it easy to justify your visit.

The best show in the UK.
