WEST MIDLANDS SHOWCASE KICKSTARTS RECORD YEAR FOR NUCLEUS EXPO
An intimate event at Coventry’s MTC marked the start of Nucleus Expo 2017, a year when the events company will tour its unique exhibition in no fewer than six corners of the country.
Partnering with an A-list of local leaders like Coventry Council, Wasps Rugby Club, industrial designers Smallfry, the Manufacturing Technology Centre, and patent specialists Marks & Clerk, Nucleus Expo’s West Midlands showcase brought science, technology, engineering and design leaders into one house, galvanising the STEM firms setting the pace of local innovation.
In line with its mission, Nucleus Expo tailors its events to correspond to regional industry trends. It invites influencers, academics, entrepreneurs, investors to swap skills and knowledge to strengthen ties – and the local innovation ecosystem.
Attendees met with innovators like Koolmill, who showcased a life-changing rice cultivation technology destined to improve the lives of 3.5bn people. Elsewhere, Advanced Innovative Engineering (AIE), showed off their unique Wankel rotary engines for the automotive, marine and aerospace industries.
Exhibitors such as the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) described its forthcoming nationwide innovation programme, and Dstl – a chosen supplier to the MoD – offered a unique perspective on cutting edge ideas.
Layla-Jane Stacey, Founder of Nucleus Expo, said:
“Yesterday we saw the best of the West Midlands, a thriving area which has fully embraced entrepreneurship, innovation and enterprise, and we are delighted with the results.Nucleus is different from other big technology events and expos: we don’t just turn up, impart information and leave: we start new conversations. We help regions and people come together. This kick-off event shows how hungry people are to meet their industry peers so I’m hugely excited for our next five dates.”
Stephen Blake, a partner at Marks & Clerk, said:
“Nucleus Expo is crucial to the innovation landscape: we all want to see exciting science and tech and that’s absolutely what we got.
The science and tech ecosystem in the Midlands is coming along very well, we are the beating heart of the UK and events like Nucleus are critical for helping businesses to start up, grow and ensure they’re well placed for the future.”
