3rd August 2020
We regret to announce that given the current situation with Coronavirus we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition due to be held at the Warwickshire Event Centre.
Like many other organisers we have been watching the criteria for events unfold. Venues are only currently planned to reopen from 1st October subject to successful outcomes of the mass gathering pilot studies. There are also ongoing government restrictions in place for the continuing management of this pandemic which are subject to change at any time.
We are positive that considerable social distancing measures will need to be in place regardless. We feel these would have a significant impact on our ability to present the event to the normal size and format for everyone’s enjoyment. Therefore, we have come to the sensible and responsible decision to cancel the event until October 2021.
We are aware that our loyal supporters will be disappointed with this decision but it would not be right to organise an event that does not meet the high expectations that have been set over the last 42 years.
The 2021 show dates are confirmed as the 14th – 17th October again at the Warwickshire Event Centre.
Any visitors who have purchased an advance ticket already will be refunded directly.
Please follow us on Twitter @ MeridienneEx or Facebook Meridienne Exhibitions LTD for all the latest news on our events.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The Meridienne Team
Now in its 43rd year the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition offers you the chance to meet the clubs and societies and talk model engineering with other enthusiasts.
To build on from the expertise the clubs offer you there will be demonstrations and lectures from leading model engineers, to give you guidance on specialist topics, don’t be shy to ask them any questions you may have. Once you have been inspired to build your next project or complete that project which has been around for years. Why not purchase the products you will need from the specialist suppliers, with over 50 in the hall we are sure they will have what you need to get you started!
There is also an opportunity for you to showcase your own masterpiece by entering it into the competition. There are 16 classes which you can compete in and prizes are awarded to the winners. If you are not interested in competing but would like to display your model, we also have 16 display classes which you are able to display your hard work for others to enjoy.
As one of the biggest modelling exhibitions in both size, scope and duration, this is THE event for any modeller’s calendar.
