Ausplas, Australia’s national trade exhibition for the plastics industry and the longest-running plastics industry event in the southern hemisphere, will be held in conjunction with National Manufacturing Week in Sydney in 2014.
This follows the recent acquisition of the Ausplas show by Reed Exhibitions from Exhibition Management Pty Ltd.
While NMW is an annual event, rotating between Sydney and Melbourne, Ausplas is staged every three years.
The next edition of Ausplas will be held alongside NMW from May 13-16 2014 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. It will be the first time that Ausplas has been staged in Sydney in 24 years – since 1990, the largest ever stand-alone edition of Ausplas.
The Ausplas show will further strengthen NMW’s position as Australia’s largest integrated manufacturing industry event.
NMW now also includes AMTIL’s Austech, Australia’s premier advanced precision manufacturing and machine tool exhibition.
Last year, the combined NMW/Ausplas/Austech event, which occupied all 30,000sqm of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre over 4 days, attracted more than 13,000 visitors from Australia and overseas.
John Kelly, owner of Exhibition Management and founder of Ausplas said: “This development with Reed and National Manufacturing Week will certainly breathe new life into Ausplas in terms of both exhibitor and visitor opportunities.”
More information on NMW and Ausplas in 2014 will be available soon.
