2012 Drives Show info pack is now available

17 February, 2011

With just over a year to go the next Drives & Controls Show at the Birmingham NEC, the organisers have produced a six-page brochure full of information for potential exhibitors. The colour publication includes data from the previous event in 2010, such as breakdowns of the visitors to the show by job function, company activities, and product interests. There is also a list of some the Blue Chip companies that attended the 2010 event.

For the first time in 2012, there will be direct connection between the halls containing the Drives & Controls show and the MACH show, allowing visitors to move easily between the two shows. The Drives exhibition will be in one large hall, along with the other shows organised by DFA Media, including Air-Tech, Ifpex and a new show called Plant & Asset Management.

“Due to the success of 2010 and the uptake so far, we have increased our space allocation,” says exhibition director, Doug Devlin. “Also we will be increasing the seminar programme to reflect current legislation in several key areas.”

To receive a free copy of the Exhibition Pack, please contact Doug on 01922 644766 (office), or 07803 624471 (mobile), or by email at
