Reed Exhibitions Australia has officially launched its Advanced Manufacturing Expo, a Sydney based event that will alternate with the company’s National Manufacturing Week, which held biennially in Melbourne.
Advanced Manufacturing Expo 2020 will comprise a conference and exhibition targeted at inspiring future growth in advanced manufacturing processes and production. The event will be held from 13th to 15th May at the Sydney Showgrounds, Sydney Olympic Park.
Free registration is available now for all manufacturing industry professionals, engineers and industrial tertiary students.
Advanced Manufacturing Expo has been developed to inspire the Australian manufacturing industry to continue its status as a source of economic strength and innovation, and increase global competitiveness, by adopting advanced state-of-the-art technology, R&D and design processes, and emphasising value creation.
The expo will also highlight the opportunities available to the nation’s manufacturers if they take full advantage of Australia’s high level of education, abundant natural resources, productive research sector and the nation’s reputation for quality output.
The expo is being strategically held in NSW to align with the launch of NSW Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Industry Development Strategy in 2018, and replaces the Sydney edition of National Manufacturing Week.
Advanced Manufacturing Expo will offer NSW manufacturers and their 253,000 employees, who produce 30% of the nation’s manufacturing output and generate $33 billion in industry value, direct access to the latest insights from industry leaders and innovative pre- and post- production solutions.
“Advanced Manufacturing Expo being held for the first time in 2020, is an exciting and necessary addition to the industry’s calendar and our industrial portfolio,” says Jono Whyman, Exhibition Director of Advanced Manufacturing Expo.
”The continuous rise in automation, additive manufacturing in production, adoption of industrial IoT and state-of-the-art technology and integration of high-level engineering, by manufacturers lays a strong foundation for the introduction of AMX 2020.
“At the inaugural edition of this premier NSW manufacturing event, industry professionals will have access to the latest insights, knowledge-sharing opportunities and leading pre- and post- production solutions.”
The Sydney Showground location ensures manufacturers and industrial SMEs based in Western Sydney are only a short distance away, with the region continuing to grow as a focal point for investment and growth in NSW, and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis that is already under development and will be a hub for advanced manufacturing.
Industry associations and sponsors supporting the inaugural Advanced Manufacturing Expo include: the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC), Engineers Australia, AMTIL and Weld Australia.
The exhibition will feature six designated product zones: Automation & Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions, Industrial Internet of Things, Machine Tools and Welding Technology.
