This year's Model Engineer Exhibition will be returning to Sandown Park Exhibition Centre by popular demand. The event promises to be the premier event in the model engineer’s diary for 2013, with hundreds of world class models on display and entered in the world famous Model Engineer Competition. We also offer you the chance to come along and visit the UK’s leading specialist suppliers, plus the opportunity to meet the clubs and societies who help and support those wishing to take up this fascinating hobby.

This year features a brand new section devoted to the future in the shape of the Maker Movement where state-of-the-art inventions, using the very latest in CAD origination, bring the making of components to fruition using the most up to date technology – technology that is rapidly becoming available to the typical home workshop enthusiast.

The 2013 event promises to be better than ever before and will include;
• Over forty key specialist suppliers
• Hundreds of models on display – organisers expect over 1,000 entries
• SMEE Lectures and Demonstrations
• Forty club and society displays
• Live track action in 7 ¼”, 16mm and Gauge 1

There are also many special attractions this year, these include;

SMEE (The Society of Model & Experimental Engineers) has traditionally organised a series of well-structured but informal lectures on a wide range of subjects by some of the leading names in the world of model engineering – and you won't be disappointed by what's on offer at this year's exhibition. As in the case of the last two years, three hours of lectures a day are to be presented where you will be able sit back and enjoy the talks, as well as the opportunity to take part in a question and answer session.

The Lecturer’s programme can be found at The SMEE at the Model Engineer Exhibition - The Model Engineer Exhibition (http://www.modelengineershow.co.uk/editorial/page.asp?p=804)
