With the two new Zones, NMW 2013 will present a total of 12 Product Zones to help buyers and sellers easily find each other.
 
NMW 2013 will showcase products and services fast-growing sectors including aerospace, mining, biotech, sustainable and food packaging.
 
The 12 product zones include:
 
  • Air Technology

“There has never been a more important time for industry to come together,” said NMW 2013 Exhibition Director, Paul Baker.
 
Despite all the challenges now facing the sector, manufacturing remains a vital part of Australia’s economy.
 
Manufacturing contributes some 8 percent of GDP and employs nearly one million Australians.
 
National Manufacturing Week reflects the latest technology and trends for the Australian manufacturing industry.
