Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show 2024 Recap

Leading precision sheet metal work manufacturer, Fife Fabrications, based in Glenrothes, Scotland, travelled to Farnborough to exhibit at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show from the 6th to the 8th of February 2024.


The Southern Manufacturing & Electronics show is held at the Farnborough Exhibition Centre and prides itself on being one of the most important engineering shows in the UK. This is an annual event for Fife Fabrications, bringing together expertise from a diverse range of businesses within the engineering industry.


FiFab’s attendance at the show allowed the opportunity to touch base, and engage with existing customers and make new connections within the industry. The Southern Show 2024 has been their busiest show yet, with more stands, higher footfall and an increase in demographics at the event. This allowed FiFab to receive the highest number ever of new enquiries and connect with 17 existing customers at their stand.


From the Fife Fabrication team, Managing Director, John Penman and Sales Manager, Colin Paterson, attended the show, being on hand to discuss all sheet metal work and electromechanical assembly needs. John said of the event,


“The show was amazing, we had a 100% increase in new visitors compared to 2023. There was lots of positivity amongst customers and suppliers at the show this year, with a positive trend being shown across the wider engineering industry for 2024. This positive nature proved successful for us at FiFab as we were delighted to secure a new customer less than one week after the show and have opened up our customer base for new opportunities across 2024.”


John and Colin would like to extend a thank you to everyone who visited the stand during the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show 2024.
