Australian Manufacturing Week 2022 to coincide with International Women’s Day 


The Australian Manufacturing Week 2022 event will open on the day women around the world are recognised for their contribution to society - on International Women’s Day, March 8.

AMW 2022 organisers Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Ltd (AMTIL) said the “happy coincidence” of these big events, will be marked with the recognition of women’s contribution to Australian manufacturing.

The opening day will kick off with a line-up of female speakers on the Future Solutions Stage. The event will also be preceded by a Women in Manufacturing networking breakfast.

Kim Banks, AMW Exhibition Manager and Head of Events at AMTIL said: “We’re working on a great program aimed at celebrating the achievements of women in this industry, and perhaps inspiring a next generation of younger women to consider manufacturing as a   career.”

For each of the four days of AMW 2022, the Future Solutions Stage will explore a specific theme. 

These will be:

  • Tuesday 8 March: Women in Manufacturing
  • Wednesday 9 March: Unlimit3D – Unlocking Additive Technology Opportunities
  • Thursday 10 March: Research & Innovation
  • Friday 11 March: A Celebration of Australian Manufacturing

For the second day of the show, the Future Solutions Stage will be devoted to additive             manufacturing, with Unlimit3D returning after its launch at AMTIL’s Austech exhibition in 2019. 

Under the theme ‘Strengthening and Securing Australian Supply Chains’, and with generous support from the event’s major sponsor, Amiga Engineering, Unlimit3D will next year take place right at the heart of the AMW exhibition and will be open to all.

"We’ve decided to stage it at the Future Solutions Stage, so anyone visiting AMW can come along and learn about this technology. We think it’ll be a big hit,” said Ms Banks.

The first UNLIMIT3D was a big success. This time around it’s expected to have more impact with its integration on the main stage of the event. 

Day three will look at Research & Innovation, with speakers from across industry, government and academia discussing ways manufacturers and researchers can collaborate more effectively to develop and commercialise Australian innovations. 

The last day will celebrate some of the great success stories coming out of Australian manufacturing today – with a focus on how the use of new technology is driving the industry forward.

AMTIL is currently hard at work curating an exciting, inspiring program, and is inviting industry to contribute ideas for speakers or subjects to cover. Suggestions should be sent to: For more information email:

“AMTIL’s motto is ‘Connect. Inform. Grow’, and having a compelling speaker program at events like these is a big part of that,” said Ms Banks. 

“Keep an eye on the AMW website ( and our social media channels – there will be plenty of further announcements between now and in the lead up to the event,” concluded Ms Banks.
