Subcon is the UK’s premier subcontract manufacturing supply chain show. Now in its 45th year, the show's longevity is a testament to the high-quality content and the variety of UK and international exhibitors it provides.

For 2022, Subcon will be co-located once again with The Engineer Expo and the very popular Manufacturing Management Show. Together they will deliver a unique and relevant event for the manufacturing and engineering industry. Bringing the best suppliers, latest innovations and practical advice to help build new partnerships and optimize business strategies.

All visitors will benefit from free access to all three events.

Once again the Subcon show impressed with a good mix of exhibitors and visitors. I was able to network with suppliers and customers alike and source potential new business.

Darren Pearson, Director, Gee Graphite Ltd

Subcon provided an excellent day out meeting potential new suppliers and seeing new innovations. After all not everything can be done online or via Zoom.

Matt Nichols, Business Systems Manager, Wentworth Wooden Puzzles

Superb show, good companies, good interaction with the companies. Can't ask for more

Sally Barlow, Director, Barlow's Farming Ltd

There was a myriad of businesses (Local, National and International) to talk with, and it was gratifying to engage with a number of companies who may be a suitable fit and, with whom, we will continue to liaise and hopefully make part of our supply chain. Conference sessions were also available at the show on specific topics which gave another dimension to the day (and a chance to sit down (socially distanced of course) and save a bit of shoe leather). A well organized event and a great location.

Teresa Sykes, Head of Procurement, Simworx Ltd

An excellent exhibition with current relevance to industry.
