2020 Science, Engineering & Technology Exhibitions

Thank you for enquiring about our 2020 exhibition programme which aims to cover the science, engineering & technology needs of the UK’s nuclear, defence, maritime, aerospace, petrochemical and science & technology sectors.

Some venues still need to confirm their date for an event and others have requested we offer guidance to suppliers so they have an insight into the range of products and services that might be needed in the future.

This page gives you the opportunity to ‘register your interest’ at venues where a date has yet to be confirmed or for events where we have been asked to identify suppliers that have specific capabilities. Where we are seeking preferred products and services, the lists are designed to help ensure that you, as a paying exhibitor, know what products would best serve that site and therefore make effective use of your time and resources.

There are several other venues that we will be attending where you do not have to register your interest in advance of a booking. For further clarification on these other venues, please contact the Nu-Tech Office on sales@nu-techassoc.co.uk

BAE Systems Warton at Warton Aerodrome - Weds, 22nd May 2019

In hosting this event, BAE Systems at Warton Aerodrome has given an indication that they will be seeking specific products, services and areas of expertise from the supply chain which will focus on trying to enhance human performance.

The increasing speed of technological development, the proliferation of vast amounts of data and information; and the increasing pressure on rapid human decision-making create the opportunity for new solutions. The ability to augment human performance, both mentally and physically, could therefore prove to be a distinct advantage from the design office to the factory, to the maintenance hangar and to operations on the front line.

As these demanding environments put high pressure on the physical, perceptive and cognitive capabilities of the human, we aim to utilise this exhibition to look for technologies that can be used either on their own or in combination with others to support the human ‘decision-maker’.

We’re interested in individuals and organisations who think they have a technology that can offer something in these or related areas. The technologies can apply across all users, maintainers, operators, trainees, trainers, pilots, etc. and could come from a range of diverse industry sectors, not just those designed for defence, as well as across all maturities as they could be mutually leveraged now or as part of future products and services.

Essentially, BAE Systems want to know what it is, what it could be used for, and how.

Suppliers of the following products and services may therefore find exhibiting at this event useful.

Please register your interest in exhibiting at this event and indicate which products and services might apply to you.

If you do not supply any of the items listed please indicate what products and services you do offer which you think might still  be beneficial to this audience and we can confirm if exhibition space will be available.

BAE Systems Warton

BAE Systems Warton at Warton Aerodrome - Weds, 22nd May 2019

In hosting this event, BAE Systems at Warton Aerodrome has given an indication that they will be seeking specific products, services and areas of expertise from the supply chain which will focus on trying to enhance human performance.

The increasing speed of technological development, the proliferation of vast amounts of data and information; and the increasing pressure on rapid human decision-making create the opportunity for new solutions. The ability to augment human performance, both mentally and physically, could therefore prove to be a distinct advantage from the design office to the factory, to the maintenance hangar and to operations on the front line.

As these demanding environments put high pressure on the physical, perceptive and cognitive capabilities of the human, we aim to utilise this exhibition to look for technologies that can be used either on their own or in combination with others to support the human ‘decision-maker’.

We’re interested in individuals and organisations who think they have a technology that can offer something in these or related areas. The technologies can apply across all users, maintainers, operators, trainees, trainers, pilots, etc. and could come from a range of diverse industry sectors, not just those designed for defence, as well as across all maturities as they could be mutually leveraged now or as part of future products and services.

Essentially, BAE Systems want to know what it is, what it could be used for, and how.

Suppliers of the following products and services may therefore find exhibiting at this event useful.

Please register your interest in exhibiting at this event and indicate which products and services might apply to you.

If you do not supply any of the items listed please indicate what products and services you do offer which you think might still  be beneficial to this audience and we can confirm if exhibition space will be available.
