There will not be a Model Engineer Exhibition following the established format at Sandown Park in 2015. There may be an exhibition in 2015 - of which news will be made public at an appropriate time - and we are in the planning stages of an all new MEX 2016 but, at the moment, there is no further announcement to make.
