Space-Comm Expo is an event organised by key industry associations and influential organisations that showcases the manufacturing supply chain for products, services, and solutions which are essential to the success of commercial space projects.

As the largest exhibition in the UK, Space-Comm Expo 2022 focuses on the commercial future of space for business, defence and aerospace industries in the UK. The UK contributes 6.5% of the global space market and plans to grow this to 10% by 2030. This makes Space-Comm Expo the perfect place for the industry to meet, learn, network, and do business with each other.

As spacecraft component suppliers for over 50 years, it was an event not to be missed by the team here at MSP. The event took place earlier this month at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre and welcomed over 150 exhibitors, thousands of attendees, and 80 keynote speakers and experts from across the globe who discussed various topics on the program.

Key Highlights from Space-Comm Expo

Members of the MSP team that attended the event shared that it was a great networking experience, meeting current partners and creating new relationships with prospects.

As well as providing insider knowledge regarding the latest trends in the industry, the conference gave delegates an insight into the defence and space sectors, where MSP has particular expertise. 

During the keynote presentations, a lot of emphasis was placed on the UK’s leadership in the space market at the expo and on the need for companies in the aerospace sector to have Cyber Essentials certification, which MSP has held for many years, as a part of our security strategy.

Our thoughts on the expo…

“Space-Comm was a great opportunity for us to maintain existing relationships with our existing partners as well as form new partnerships through the networking opportunities that Space-Comm provides.”

“One of the key highlights from Space-Comm was expanding our Space Industry knowledge by attending talks from industry leading experts along with networking with our space sector partners.”

Leading Manufacturer MSP to Showcase Bespoke Solutions at World Leading Energy Exhibition ONS 2022

Exhibiting at stand 5260 from August 29th to September 1st, MSP – the leading manufacturer and global supplier of stampings and springs – is looking forward to meeting with current and future partners at the largest event in the global energy industry’s calendar.  

Expected to welcome around 65,000 visitors from across the globe, ONS 2022 is a world-leading event that facilitates discussions and collaborations on energy, technology, and innovation critical to the future of the industry.  

As a great opportunity for leading manufacturers to come together, Andrew Durdey, Director of Sales and Marketing at MSP, says, “The ONS exhibition is a highly valued event at MSP. With over 55 years of successfully supplying the energy industry, our dedicated team of engineers are excited to be exhibiting. As an exciting opportunity to have the energy industry united under one roof, we are looking forward to meeting with current and future partners within the industry and sharing our knowledge of engineered solutions using our spring and presswork expertise.” 

Similarly, James Calleia, Energy Sales Manager at MSP, is expecting ONS 2022 to be a great networking opportunity, as he comments, “For the first time since the pandemic, ONS 2022 will bring so many of our partners from the energy industry together, and we are excited to build and maintain our relationships with them, as well as forging new relationships as we convey our expertise as a leading global supplier within the industry.”

The theme of this year’s ONS conference is ‘Trust’, a pertinent theme in a time when the global community is re-establishing and adapting to new realities. James says, “The ONS theme resonates with us, as throughout the global supply chain, trust is a core element, and having that trust ensures the integrity of the supply chain. From suppliers to customers and vice versa, trust creates a foundation that enables both parties to communicate in an effective and transparent manner.”

Andrew continues, “We believe building and maintaining relationships to be a key aspect in the trust customers place in MSP to provide the best possible engineered spring solutions, and trust in the MSP product is key, with full traceability for all parts to industry standards.”

The team at MSP expect there to be a large focus on energy transition, as the industry continues to shift towards renewable energy sources. James comments, “We’re expecting geographical changes in energy supply to be part of the wider discussion, as the Norwegian government continues to develop world-leading offshore infrastructure in the North Sea.”

Andrew concludes, “Come along to stand 5260 to meet our fantastic team at MSP, hear about our bespoke, engineered solutions, and take part in our spring-focused competition, where prizes will be up for grabs!”
