MACH is the outstanding showcase for advances in the manufacturing industry brought to you by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), a UK based trade association dealing specifically with engineering based manufacturing. It is a biennial exhibition which brings together all the best innovations and latest developments to come from the manufacturing technologies sectors under one roof.
At MACH we offer guided tours of the exhibition halls, led by apprentices and graduates working in the industry. This provides students a unique opportunity to interact with role models from industry whilst finding out valuable careers advice. The guided tours include exhibits in the E&D Zone and also a wide range of stands around the entire exhibition, varying from presentations to hands-on activities.
Please note, for Health & Safety reasons, students aged 11-16 (Years 7-11) must be escorted round the halls on a guided tour. Tour groups can vary from 6-12 students per group, and each group must have a responsible teacher/adult from the school. Guided tours are not mandatory for students aged 17 (Year 12) upwards, however you are still welcome to request one at the time of booking. Tour slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
MACH 2018 falls over Easter Holidays for some of the UK. Students considering a career in engineering are more than welcome to attend with a parent or guardian.To book this activity, please contact:
