Photo galleries are not available for content from the previous KTN website: we apologise for this.

A limited number of FREE early bird tickets for delegates and discounted early bird exhibitor tickets are still available for Materials Research Exchange 2020. Register today to ensure your place at the must-go-to Materials event of 2020.


MRE 2020 is taking place on 18th – 20th February 2020 at the Business Design Centre in London. The event will provide a platform to develop the commercial success of UK-generated materials innovation by showcasing ground-breaking new materials and their manufacturing processes to industry with the goal of accelerating bringing these to a commercialisation stage.

MRE 2020, organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network and Innovate UK, will demonstrate how the UK is a global hub of excellence in materials research, as well as how materials is an area which will continue to propel the nation’s economy to future success. MRE 2020 will take the form of a two-day exhibition and conference, showcasing the wealth of UK materials research, investment opportunities and UK progress towards Industry 4.0; it’s the ideal chance to build links within the materials supply chain to strengthen the UK materials offer to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and end users.

The last celebrated event in 2018 included 70 exhibitions, 1300 delegates and 89 speakers. Do not miss out on this 2020 opportunity! This event will have even more exhibition stands for academic and industrial exhibitors and we expect more than 1500 delegates with opportunities to meet the key funding and investment decision makers and attend targeted seminars and listen to keynote addresses from BEIS, UKRI, industry leaders and key academics.

We’re extremely happy to announce the Henry Royce Institute as the headline sponsor for MRE 2020.


Exhibitor benefits include:

  • Set up in advance on 18th February and participating in an international networking opportunity
  • Two complimentary delegate passes including evening wine reception on 19th February for delegates and exhibitors
  • Listed as an exhibitor in the event guide and website
  • Company logo on the screens at the event
  • An e-delegate list prior to the event
  • Complimentary lunch for two on February 19th and 20th
