The well-being and safety of all Exhibitors, Visitors and Staff had to be the top priority. Thank you for your understanding while all the necessary arrangements were being facilitated for the events postponement.

The organisers of Surface World Live can now announce the new dates for the show are February 24th and 25th 2021. This will also be announced in the April issue of Surface World magazine.



What does every product have in common? From a complex aero-engine to a simple saucepan and everything in between – they all have one thing in common: a surface.

Whatever the product, engineers have to carefully consider the surface, taking in various concerns such as design and cosmetic appeal, functionality, wear characteristics, operating environment and longevity.

That’s why visiting Surface World Live is essential for all in the manufacturing sector. This major international exhibition will showcase the very latest in the world of surface coatings; including surface engineering, surface technology and surface finishing – in all its many guises.

This important engineering event enables designers and production engineers to keep abreast of evolving surface technology, equipment and services – vital in order to remain competitive in world markets.

The Institute of Materials Finishing (IMF) are sponsoring the show. The team will be on hand within the IMF Visitor Lounge to assist with any questions or problems you may be searching for answers to.
