Continued Growth and Success at TCT Live & MM Live

Rapid News Communications Group is delighted to report that 2010 proved to be yet another successful year for the cutting edge technology events TCT Live and MM Live UK.

Held in October at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, TCT Live and its co-located show MM Live are the leading events dedicated to the markets of rapid product development and additive manufacturing and micro manufacturing. The combined event provides a vital platform to share products and knowledge within the UK manufacturing community.

More than 3,600 attendees visited the two shows which is a increase on 2009, however it was the quality of the visitors that really stood out with exhibitors reporting significant leads during the course of the two-days.

Many companies have already reserved their space for the 2011 shows, which endorses the success this year and signposts continued support from the industry going into 2011.

Ulf Lindhe, Business Development Manager at Netfabb commented, “TCT Live is an intense event that allows us to meet and network with key industry people and users alike during a couple of bustling and very busy days.”

Aaron Johnson from custom micro moulder, Accumold, commented, “MM Live UK 2010 was a fantastic

gathering of micro manufacturers and attendees interested in our technology. We’ve had an excellent couple of days and some outstanding interest.”

The combination of first class suppliers on the show floor and free of charge conference sessions proved a winning formula for visitors and the stage is set for further growth in 2011.

Duncan Wood, Managing Director of the Events Division at Rapid News commented, “Once again we have delivered a successful show in a testing environment. While many industrial shows are having to regroup, postpone or cancel, our strategy enables us to continue moving forward in a positive direction. The real stars of the show are the exhibitors and we have to say a big thanks to them.”

“2011 will be a landmark year as these shows have now outgrown the Ricoh Arena, therefore we have taken the decision to re-locate them to the NEC to run alongside our other event Interplas 2011. The co-location benefits are obvious and along with this we will bring our trademark customer focus to bear on what will be the largest group of UK Manufacturing shows for some years.”

TCT Live 2011, MM Live UK 2011 and Interplas will run 27th-29th September 2011.
