All systems go for NMW 2011

by          in 

National Manufacturing Week 2011 to be held in conjunction with Austech – and for the first time Ausplas – will be at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 24-27.

Event organisers Reed Exhibitions say more than 40 per cent of NMW 2011’s floorspace has already been allocated on the back of strong results for NMW 2010 held in Sydney last month.

This year’s event attracted some 10,000 visits.

According to Reed Exhibitions more than 20 per cent of attendees were directors/CEOs or equivalent, and a similar number were tradespersons, supervisors/leading hands/factory floor managers or equivalent.

Paul Baker, NMW 2010 Exhibition Manager, says the “cautiously confident” tone of NMW 2010 had translated to solid leads for many exhibitors.

“An improving global economy should contribute to even stronger outcomes for NMW 2011, he says.

“Economic forecasts suggest that Australia’s economic growth will increase to around 4 per cent in 2011, as improving external conditions stoke business investment and demand for Australian exports.

“This is good news for Australia’s manufacturing sector – and against this backdrop, Reed Exhibitions is working to help exhibitors drive a stronger ROI from their investment in NMW 2011.”

The inclusion of Ausplas, Australia’s international plastics exhibition, would support the quality and quantity of visitors, Mr Baker said.
