National Manufacturing Week 2018 is scheduled for 9-11 May. This year, it is at the Sydney Showgrounds in the Sydney Olympic Park precinct.
National Manufacturing Week
Over the years, National Manufacturing Week has fluctuated in popularity. Held annually on a joint basis between Sydney and Melbourne, in recent years the event has become popular with international exhibitors. Mostly, they are looking to gain a foothold into the Australian manufacturing marketplace.
National Manufacturing Week Conference Schedule
Digital business, 3D printing and Industry 4.0 are all spotlighted features of this year’s event. These topics will continue to remain the focus of this event for years to come. Also on the conference schedule are discussions on safety, manufacturing sector profitability, process improvement and product lifecycle management.
Energy cost challenges are also highlighted with a dedicated discussion. This is particularly important to Victorian industry right now.
The power transmission sector looks to have avoided this year’s event. This mirrors what has happened for at least the last five years. Gearbox manufacturers have directed their attention to specialist industrial sector conferences, such as those dedicated to mining, oil & gas and sugar.
There is free entry for people involved in the manufacturing sector, and a link to their website is here.
