The organisation of Surface World Live 2018 is now under way!

Surface World Live 2017 was the best show held for many years, with footfall up by a whopping 48%. The next show in 2018 is predicted to be even busier. By September next year we will be 18 months into Brexit negotiations and the final outcome will be much clearer.

Surface World Live 2018 will be a perfect platform to look at new suppliers, upgrading your current finishing lines, looking at alternative processes to improve your profitability, negotiate new business or just to network with current suppliers and also find out what is happening in the industry.

Stands are already being reserved, with many prime sights now taken. If you would like to exhibit at Surface World Live 2018, please call Nigel Bean on 01442 826826 to ask about stand availability and secure your space today.

The BSTSA Visitor Lounge made its first appearance at the last show and was a great success. This new area will be returning to Surface World Live 2018. The Knowledge Centre will see a couple of new companies next year and continues to expand.

The two Live Theatres will also be back for 2018. Live Theatre One will be sponsored by Surface World magazine and Live Theatre Two by the SEA (Surface Engineering Association). If you are interested in speakng at Surface World Live 2018 in Live Theatre One, please contact Jane Soones to discuss what you would like to do and to arrange a time slot for the event.
