NMW 2011 in full swing


Australia’s largest ever manufacturing exhibition – National Manufacturing Week 2011 – opens this week at the Melbourne Convention Centre with 550 exhibitors on display covering 5000sqm.

For the first time NMW is co-located with Austech, Australia’s leading technology forum and Ausplas international plastics industry exhibition.

Companies including Henkel, Nord Drive Systems, Kemppi, BOC, Robotic Automation, Blackwoods, John Hart Automation, Coregas, Thermadyne and Lincoln Electric have taken landmark spaces at the event.  

New features include:

  • 10 Product Zones – exhibitors will be grouped in 10 color-coded areas – including Electrical, Health & Safety, Welding, Information Technology and Engineering – to make it easy for buyers and sellers to find each other.
  • InnovateAustralia – a 372m2 feature focusing on actual commercial opportunities in emerging high-tech industries. Representatives from aerospace, defence, renewable technologies, automotive transport and medical sectors will attend, as well as outlining – via displays – the products and services they need.
  • NMW Conference – a two-day program featuring closed-door presentations and discussions, on themes around embracing innovation for a competitive, efficient and sustainable future.

“Visitors to NMW 2011 will see the latest technologies, products and services available to help give manufacturers new ideas and answers to manufacturing challenges,“ says NMW spokesperson Paul Baker.

The exhibition ends on Friday, May 27.
