Sponsored: The Engineering Design Show - everything for design engineers under one roof

Image credit: Engineering Design Show

The Engineering Design Show (EDS) provides the ideal environment for design engineers to benefit from direct access to the latest products, services and innovations.

With more than 25 conference speakers, a wide-range of free-to-attend practical workshops, exciting new feature zones and over 200 exhibitors showcasing their products and services, the Engineering Design Show is the only event that caters all aspects of engineering design under one roof in an efficient and dynamic environment.

Now in its eighth year, EDS 2019 will once again inspire more than 4000 engineering professionals. The Show continues to provide unrivalled access to expert speakers exploring best practice, new design techniques and technology applications.

More than an exhibition…

This year, four feature zones have been introduced to offer visitors a fully immersive experience of innovation, inspiration, interaction and insight.

Robotics Innovation Hub

Visitors to the interactive Robotics Innovation Hub will discover how technology and design skill is being employed in a variety of applications.  Demonstrations have been supplied by X-STK Applied Automation, Comau and Sundance.

Future Zone

Stand D61 – The Future Zone gives visitors the opportunity to try out some of the latest tools that could assist their design processes. VR technology from RiVR is changing the way humans learn.  RiVR creates photo realism room scale interactivity in virtual reality. RiVR Link Classroom Solution is a VR tool that creates an interactive and shared experience controlled by the instructor through the headsets.

Innovation Zone

This space is a showcase of some cool technology applications from Scaled and Stratasys. Scaled’s super-light, last-mile (delivery) vehicle chassis has been produced using large-scale 3D printing. The concept is being developed in order to demonstrate various aspects of 3D printing, including fast-make printed tools for carbon fibre manufacture and the direct printing of structurally-relevant components.

Cypress Semiconductor Technology Zone

Visit stand F8 to experience a showcase of state-of the-art technology applications from Cypress Semiconductor. Cypress’ advanced system-level solutions are Embedded in Tomorrow™. The company’s world-class, secure wireless technology, along with its MCUs, memories, analog ICs and USB controllers, give it an unparalleled competitive advantage in the Internet of Things, and a jump on emerging markets.

In addition, you can find out how the latest materials technology has been used by Sandvik to design the smash-proof guitar tested by rock star, Yngwie Malmsteen. Why not try it for yourself on stand B65?

During the past eight years, the Engineering Design Show has proved itself as the must-attend, industry leading event for design engineers. The reasons are clear, it delivers great content and has the right suppliers on board that visitors want to collaborate with. Lucrative supply chain partnerships have been formed, design challenges solved, and ideas abound as a result of a walking around the isles of EDS and talking to the exhibitors there. From SMEs to F1 teams, from automotive OEMs to appliance designers – they all return, year after year, because they get value from it.

What sets EDS apart from other trade shows is that the focus is on design and engineering and nothing else. It provides a fully immersive experience for visitors and exhibitors.

EDS remains technology agnostic and whether it’s materials, 3D printers, fastenings or CAD software, it is all there under one roof, so delegates can accumulate systemic solutions to make them more productive, cost efficient and innovative.

And it is not just mechanical components. Reflecting the trend of engineers taking up more varying roles and the need to tackle both mechanical and electronic problems, the Engineering Design Show is co-located with the Electronics Design Show and Embedded Design Show. Both have a raft of exhibitors to help you with PCB design, test & measurement, sensor specification or component selection to mention just a few.

In addition, three workshop theatres in the main hall enable you to build your knowledge base and fill gaps you might have in a technology area.  Further, by attending you can earn CPD points accredited by the iED.

And if it is inspiration you are looking for, the Eureka! and New Electronics conferences provide application case studies from industry leading speakers. The programme has been curated by the editorial teams to provide you with the latest insights, opinions and design inspiration.

Have a look at our keynote, conference and workshop programme and highlights below:
