Following the success of this year’s Electronex at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, the show organiser has announced that the 2019 Expo will be held in the new extension of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on the 11th and 12th September next year.

The Sydney event was judged an outstanding success with around 1000 trade visitors and delegates attending the two-day event.

According to Noel Gray, MD of organiser Australasian Exhibitions & Events, “The move to this state of the art venue will take the show to the next level and allow for more exhibition space following the sellout of the two previous Melbourne shows at Melbourne Park Function Centre.

“Next year’s show will also feature more companies with advanced manufacturing solutions which are an integral part of the electronics manufacturing sector,” said Gray.

The Expo alternates annually between Sydney and Melbourne and at the last Melbourne event in 2016 more than 80% of visitors indicated that they would prefer to see future events held at the MCEC.

Electronex was first held in 2010 and has grown to become the pre-eminent exhibition for electronics manufacturing and assembly in Australia. Reflecting the growth of high-tech niche manufacturing in Australia, at the recent Sydney Expo more than 45% of the trade visitors said they had not previously attended Electronex.

The event attracts a dedicated audience of engineers and senior decision makers and 80% of the visitors also said they had not attended any other major manufacturing expos in the past 12 months.

More than 90 companies were represented on stands with many exhibitors featuring new products at the expo. Exhibitors reported that it was one of the most successful exhibitions they had attended with a quality audience of high-level decision makers seeking new products and new innovations and solutions for their businesses.

Whats’s more, 90% of visitors indicated that they had met companies of which they were not they previously aware, and 85% discovered new products or services, reinforcing the important role of exhibitions and face to face contact in today’s digital world.

The SMCBA Surface Mount Conference was also held concurrently with the expo and was well attended with more than 100 delegates participating in the two-day technical workshops. Free seminars were also held on the expo floor on a range of hot topics to complement the conference workshops.
