Editor's Comment 

The UK Government has confirmed it has given the green light for trade exhibitions to go ahead from October this year, which is an extremely positive development for industry as it will give manufacturers the opportunity to begin to identify the technologies and services they need first hand, to help them recover from the Covid-19 crisis. One of the first events to be held will be the biennial co-located events; Plant & Asset Management, Smart Industry Expo, Drives & Controls, Fluid Power & Systems, and Air-Tech Exhibitions, organised by DFA Media - publisher of Plant & Works Engineering magazine - which will be taking place between January 25th-27th 2021, alongside MACH.
