Enginering event spreads its wings

A MAJOR annual exhibition for East Anglia’s engineering sector has visited to Bury St Edmunds as part of the town’s Business Festival.

EAME (Exhibition of Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering) was launched at the Hethel Engineering Centre near Norwich four years ago but has spread its wings following the launch of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, which covers Suffolk and Norfolk.

This year’s event, held at The Apex, attracted around 60 exhibitors and several hundred visitors, keen to discover more about the cutting-edge products, services and opportunities available within East Anglia.

Besides the main exhibition, the programme also include breakfast and lunchtime seminars covering issues surrounding skills and innovation.

In addition to the continued involvement of the Hethel Engineering Centre, this year’s event was supported by Norfolk and Suffolk county councils, St Edmudsbury Borough Council, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses.
