The Manchester Model Engineering Exhibition is both a showcase for the best in model engineering in the north west and a forum where model engineers and public can meet to appreciate the expertise that exists in the region.
Following the success of the 2016 Manchester Model Engineering Exhibition (Mmex), the Northern Association of Model Engineers (NAME) have agreed to repeat the event in 2017. The proposal is to hold the exhibition in February 2017 in a larger venue to allow the full range of model making encompassed by NAME to be shown.
The organising group have searched for an alternative venue in the Greater Manchester area. The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham has been selected on the weekend of 18/19th February 2017, setup will be on Friday 17th February. The Queen Elizabeth Hall has 50% more space than the 2016 venue which will allow more clubs and traders to be represented. Public transport links are also better with Oldham bus station and a tram stop (Manchester Metro) only metres (yards) away. There are several free or low cost car parks within a short distance of the Hall as well as the town centre shops.
