Autosport International will showcase the very best of high-performance engineering under one roof at Birmingham's NEC on 10-13 January. Traditionally focused on motorsport and Europe's largest dedicated motorsport trade show, recent years have seen an increased interest from crossover industries, such as aerospace, defence, marine and medical. Including two days solely for trade, Autosport Engineering, companies will showcase their latest innovations, while the show also offers the scope to initiate the transfer of technology and knowledge between other engineering arenas.
Since it was first held in 1991, the show has occupied a key place on the calendar for the British motorsport industry, which generates sales in excess of £6 billion annually. Including eight of the 12 teams participating in the FIA Formula One World Championship, the industry is based around Motorsport Valley in the centre of the UK, which alone hosts 3,500 companies and 40,000 employees. As the community's major networking opportunity, 28,500 trade guests attended Autosport International in 2012, with over £800 million in business generated.
Autosport International runs from 10-13 January 2013, with the opening two days dedicated to trade visitors. Adult tickets are available from £26, with discounts for group bookings. To register call +44 (0)845 218 6012, or visit www.autosportinternational.com.
