Birmingham: The heart of manufacturing


Many of the world’s largest manufacturers are located close to Birmingham, including Jaguar Land Rover, JCB, Toyota, Bombardier, Caterpillar, Alstom, 3M, Boeing, Astra Zeneca and Rolls Royce.

The history of manufacturing excellence around Birmingham, combined with world-class air, rail and road links makes the NEC the perfect home for Interplas. An increasing number of international exhibitors and attendees make their way to the event to see the latest innovations and authoritative speakers, and make business happen.
