More than half of available space for National Manufacturing Week 2010 (NMW) was sold in the first three months, according to organizers.
Paul Baker, NMW exhibition manager for Reed Exhibitions said more than 100 companies have confirmed their attendance.
These include Migomag, BOC, Thermadyne, Smenco and SEW Eurodrive.
NMW 2010 will also include specialist safety displays from:
Sparke Helmore Lawyers – OH&S law
Sparke Helmore is a full service law firm with offices Australia wide. Throughout NMW 2010, Health and Safety Partner, Paul Cutrone will be conducting a court simulation on a fictitious case aimed at providing key learnings for both a corporation and an individual, based on lessons learnt from real-life experience.
HannaMig – MIG Welding with Quality, Speed & Safety
HannaMig will demonstrate the new models of T series torches, including the patented HannaMig Gas Lens Diffuser and Flexeneck.
AW Supplies – Speedglas advanced personal protective equipment for welders
AWS will showcase its complete range of Speedglas welding shields and respirator systems – including the premium range 3M Speedglas 9100 welding shields to the newly released graphic 3M Speedglas 100 welding shield series.
Materials Handling – helping organisations improve workplace safety and productivity in handling, lifting, conveying storage, logistics and warehouse systems.
Materials Handling will exhibit its new ergonomic handling solutions, and providing free copies of its recently-launched, extraordinary 420-page “Working with Ease” catalogue – the largest of its kind in the industry – designed to help organizations improve workplace safety and productivity.
Paul Baker said on current trends, there will be increasing pressure on available space for NMW 2010 from early next year.
“Visitor surveys at previous editions of NMW indicate that over 6 per cent of visitors are specifically interested in viewing new OH&S solutions at the event.
“There were more than 11,000 unique trade visitors at the last Sydney event – and in a strengthening economy, with a new location in Sydney’s manufacturing heartland, we are confident of attracting even greater numbers to NMW 2010.”
