Visitors and exhibitors alike enjoyed a high quality experience at Sensors & Instrumentation, the UK’s only national instrumentation exhibition sponsored by Mouser Electronics, which took place in Hall 1 at the NEC Birmingham from Tuesday 25 to Wednesday 26 September.

The 2018 edition saw the show’s successful co-location with What’s New In Electronics (WNIE) Live, which gave visitors unlimited access to hundreds of companies showcasing thousands of innovative products and solutions.
In addition to this, visitors enjoyed the most action-packed and informative Sensors & Instrumentation programme to date. With a two day CPD accredited seminar programme – featuring companies such as Microsoft & PCT, Siemens GB&I, Ocean Optics and Myriad Group – and the brand new ‘hands-on’ Engineering Workshop, visitors were able to take home a wealth of invaluable knowledge.

The FLC Zone, a dedicated area for the flow, level and control sector, also launched at the show alongside returning favourites, the Formula 1 Simulation Car sponsored by Rheintacho and the Innovation Showcase, sponsored by Bronkhorst UK. With so much on offer, the show attracted a highly targeted and engaged audience, as noted by exhibitors.

Rob Weemes, business development manager and Jeff Gurr, e-mech specialist, at Charcroft Electronics noted that there had been a “steady flow of high-quality visitors” resulting in “a good number of leads”, with many engineers visiting their stand to source products for specific applications.

This was echoed by Noémie Fechete, office manager at TopHex Ltd, who commented at the close of the Show: “Today was very good; you could have a thousand people come in and have very little engagement, but we’ve had real quality visitors at our stand.”
Exloc Instruments’ managing director Andrew Tither said: “The show has been great value for money, and we’ve gained a good chunk of really useful leads.”

A decade of discovery and innovation

Sensors & Instrumentation will return next year and will celebrate its 10th anniversary with the introduction of a fresh look and brand new dates.

The show will return to the NEC Birmingham on 1 & 2 October 2019, with event director Louise Pudney commenting: “There are a number of exciting changes in store to celebrate a decade of Sensors & Instrumentation and I look forward to growing this event alongside a thriving industry.”
