Thanks to generous support of the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), Imagineering was able to take a stand at MACH 2016 in Hall 4 at the NEC. This major 5-day biennial international exhibition was opened by Sir Chris Hoy MBE, British Olympic Cycling Champion. It is the largest manufacturing and engineering exhibition in the UK and a showcase for cutting edge technologies.

Imagineering was located in the Learning and Development Zone and kept good company with some major UK and international companies and engineering organisations. Well over 3000 apprentices and students visited the Zone over the week as well as their teachers and tutors and representatives from companies across a wide range of sectors.

Imagineering shares MTA’s aims, as voiced by James Selka CEO of Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) who said “As a trade association we are committed to encouraging the next generation of engineering talent into the manufacturing sector. MACH 2016 is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wonderful work our members do in training new recruits and show potential apprentices the advantages of undertaking a career in a modern manufacturing company.”

Visitors to the Imagineering Foundation stand learned about exciting opportunities it provides for manufacturing and engineering organisations of all kinds to invest in the engineers of tomorrow and how Imagineering is establishing valuable links between education and manufacturing across the UK to help develop the skills in young people needed for the future.

As well as promoting Imagineering Clubs and events, the team also highlighted its new Electromagnetism package of three projects - Magnetic Compass, Steady Hand Game and Morse Key & Buzzer - ideal as walk-in project for companies keen to take STEM subjects into schools.

After a highly successful week, the team returned with some useful contacts for future collaborations.
