Events such as this play a pivotal role in gathering all the leading stakeholders in EV and battery manufacturing. I am delighted to be opening the show and fully support its efforts to shine a light on all that the UK’s sector has to offer in the way of skills, R&D, investment opportunities, manufacturing capabilities and natural resources

Rachel Maclean MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department of Transport

The Advanced Materials Show is an essential part of the product development community – connecting the makers of next generation materials with the creators of sophisticated technologies that leverage them.  This new July date will bring the industry together at just the right time, with renewed energy and focus following the challenges of 2020

Landon Mertz, CEO, Cerion Advanced Materials.

IPS Ceramics fully support the decision to move Ceramics UK, The Advanced Materials Show, Battery Cells & System Expo, and Vehicle Electrification Expo to July 2021. In these difficult times, ensuring the safety of our colleagues and our industry is an essential task and it is good to see the show organisers making arrangements which will do exactly that. We shall be exhibiting at the rescheduled show in July and look forward to meeting everyone there

Phil Green, Sales Director - IPS Ceramics

3M is looking forward to exhibiting, speaking and connecting with new customers and partners at the shows in July

Sean Appleton, Regional Divisional Sales Manager, Advanced Materials Division North Europe - 3M

Ceramics UK provided an excellent opportunity for Lucideon to meet new and existing customers, we are already looking forward to the 2021 show

Tony Kinsella, Chief Executive, Lucideon

There was a good mix of speakers from academia, SMEs and large industry to give various perspectives – an important factor for any technical discussion topic. The poll question was highly appropriate for any audience or topic; I found the results and subsequent discussion very interesting. Very informative panel and some interesting insights

Very informative panel and some interesting insights
