Drives & Controls 2020 rescheduled for January 2021

The 2020 Drives & Controls Exhibition and co-located shows have been rescheduled to take place 25-27 January 2021 following advice from UK Government and health officials.

According to a statement released from Drives and Controls “current modelling projections suggest that the virus will peak in Spring and decline thereafter during the following months… the rescheduled date provides clarity and ensure we have time and space to deliver the same quality event we promised, providing a safe and secure environment conducive to business, networking, and career development for the manufacturing sector that we serve”.

The show is still going to take place at Birmingham’s NEC, alongside the MACH Exhibition, with ETE still due to be located at Stand D342.

We will email our customers, distributors, and suppliers closer to the date of the rescheduled event with details on how to register to attend.
