High-profile manufacturers and engineering organisations from across the Midlands have already signed up to take part in the annual Midlands IMAGINEERING FAIR.
This exciting family event returns to the Jaguar Exhibition Hall at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on
20-21 October 2012.
Participants will include event sponsor Jaguar Land Rover, National Grid, JCB, Aero Engine Controls, Delcam and Warwick Manufacturing Group, providing scores of specially developed engineering and technology activities for youngsters. Most of the action takes place undercover in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall so is not weather-dependent and there is plenty to occupy youngsters for hours. Each ticket is valid for both days making the event especially attractive for families.
Bob Shanks, Event Manager, said: “We are delighted to be back at the Ricoh Arena and grateful for the support we are receiving from Jaguar Land Rover and the Ricoh Arena. Whilst our main aim is to inspire youngsters and promote engineering and technology as a future career, the Imagineering Fair is most importantly a fun opportunity for youngsters to get hands-on with special technology they may not have seen before.”
Les Ratcliffe, Head of Community Affairs at Jaguar Land Rover said, “We are pleased to sponsor the Imagineering Fair, which is a key event in our education outreach programme. Jaguar Land Rover is committed to promoting the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) agenda through our national education programmes to address the national shortage of engineers. The hands on activities at the Imagineering Fair will give students an insight into the exciting career opportunities available in modern manufacturing and we hope it will encourage more youngsters to consider careers in engineering.”
Chris Owen, Event Manager at the Ricoh Arena, said: “The Imagineering Fair is always a hive of activity and buzzing with excited youngsters having a go at different activities. It really is an exciting fun day out for all the family and holding events such as this underlines the versatility of the Ricoh Arena.”
