Maintec will be co-located with the new Health & Safety Midlands when it returns to the NEC in Birmingham on 11 – 13 March 2014. The co-location is said to be a perfect fit as Maintec focuses on the UK’s maintenance, plant and asset management community, an audience that increasingly has to consider health and safety issues.

Matt Benyon, managing director of show organiser, easyFairs UK, explains: “We’ve had a great show this year, and all the feedback suggests people have welcomed the innovations we’ve brought in, but we never stand still. So when looking at what we could do to drive even more visitors and provide yet more relevant content to the community of maintenance and engineering professionals who head to the show every year, health and safety presented itself as a key area to focus on. After all, 25-30 per cent of all manufacturing fatalities are typically related to maintenance activities.  Co-locating with a health and safety show, organised by absolute experts in this field, reflects our commitment to once again step the show up another gear.”
