Over 300 local and international manufacturing industry suppliers will exhibit at this year’s event at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Co-located with Austech, NMW 2013 will feature – for the first time in Victoria – two new Product Zones: Sustainable Manufacturing and Metals & Composites. 
 
The Sustainable Manufacturing Zone will focus on opportunities for reducing industry’s environmental footprint, while Metals & Composites presents new developments in industry’s quest to develop reliable, lightweight, easily moulded manufacturing materials.
 
With the two new Zones, NMW 2013 will present a total of 12 Product Zones to help buyers and sellers easily find each other.
 
NMW 2013 will showcase products and services fast-growing sectors including aerospace, mining, biotech, sustainable and food packaging.
 
The 12 product zones include:
 
  • Air Technology
  • Automation and Robotics
  • Electrical
  • Electronics
  • Engineering
  • Health & Safety
  • Information Technology
  • Materials Handling
  • Metals and Composites
  • Process Control & Instrumentation
  • Sustainable manufacturing
  • Welding technology
 
“There has never been a more important time for industry to come together,” said NMW 2013 Exhibition Director, Paul Baker.
 
Despite all the challenges now facing the sector, manufacturing remains a vital part of Australia’s economy.
 
Manufacturing contributes some 8 percent of GDP and employs nearly one million Australians.
 
National Manufacturing Week reflects the latest technology and trends for the Australian manufacturing industry.
