Mega show planned for National Manufacturing Week next year


National Manufacturing Week (NMW) to be held in Melbourne next year promises to be the biggest display of its kind held in Australia.

NMW and Austech – which combine to form Australia’s only fully integrated annual manufacturing exhibition – will join with Ausplas international plastics industry exhibition for the super show.

Organisers Reed Exhibitions, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL) and Exhibition Management Pty Ltd are expecting bumper crowds.

NMW will showcase all major aspects of the manufacturing sector across ten specialist product zones.

NMW provides a unique opportunity to view, assess and buy from Australia’s most comprehensive range of the latest manufacturing products and services in one location. It also offers unmatched networking and educational opportunities, by incorporating high quality seminars, and information sessions.

Austech, held annually, is Australia’s premier advanced manufacturing and machine tool exhibition. It is the only show specifically targeted at the metalworking, machine tool and ancillary market.

Ausplas is Australia’s national exhibition for the plastics processing industry. It is held only every three years with exhibitors from Australia, Europe and Asia, engaged in the supply of plastics processing and ancillary equipment, raw materials and additives, new processing technologies, recycling and new areas of applications for plastics.

Reed Exhibitions describes the combined event as: “greater than the sum of its parts” in terms of delivering value to national and international exhibitors and visitors from all sectors of the manufacturing industry.

Reed Exhibitions and its co-organisers have booked the entire Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) for the event from May 24-27 next year.
