Bristol Model Engineering and Model Making Exhibition
It is with great regret that the Bristol Society of Model and Experimental Engineers has decided not to stage an exhibition in 2019. We do not however, see this as the end of the line for the Bristol Model Engineering Exhibition as we are looking at alternative venues and approaches to see an event return in 2020, a return that will build on our success over the past 17 years.
The Bristol Society of Model & Experimental Engineers faces considerable challenges in 2019 both with the exhibition and with other society affairs. In respect of the exhibition, it is evident that the model engineering environment is undergoing increasing change. We see changing demographics having an effect on many exhibitions, including ours, with increased costs, reduced visitor numbers and the growth in internet based purchasing being used by consumers; all these changes contribute to uncertainty around what might be the best exhibition format. In addition to those challenges we, as a society, need to focus on some big issues we currently face.
We wish to thank all Traders, Clubs & Societies and individual Exhibitors for all your support in the past and we will be in contact as soon as we have any news on a new event in which we hope you will want to be part.
