After a successful event in 2017 with more than 10,000 visitors, National Manufacturing Week is returning with a new brand vision as it celebrates its 20th anniversary from 14th to 17th May 2019 in Melbourne.
As Australia’s largest manufacturing exhibition and conference, National Manufacturing Week is the place for the manufacturing community to come together and connect over four days.
This year’s theme “Industrial Evolution” represents the transformation of Australia’s manufacturing sector into a highly integrated, skills-based, and collaborative environment.
“The 20th edition marks an important and exciting time in the manufacturing industry. The rise of automation, collaborative robots, internet of things and high-level engineering in this sector is a clear sign the manufacturing industry is evolving,” says Robby Clark, Exhibition Director of National Manufacturing Week.
“This year’s event is all about celebrating what Australia’s manufacturing industry has accomplished and driving innovation to help local manufacturers stay ahead of the game.”
Peak industry bodies supporting this year’s event include the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, Engineers Australia and Weld Australia. National Manufacturing Week 2019 will again be co-located with Austech, the only event in Australia targeted at the metalworking, machine tools and ancillary market.
