Reed Exhibitions has announced that National Manufacturing Week (NMW) is going to be discontinued, effective immediately.
National Manufacturing Week History
National Manufacturing Week can trace its lineage to the Australian Industrial and Engineering Exhibition (AIEE), which was the original annual exhibition for the industrial engineering sector. AIEE started the trend of having events in the alternative cities of Sydney and Melbourne in alternate years, which was continued by NMW.
All Torque Transmissions has been a big supporter of the event over the years, along with our supply partners, who have both attended and exhibited throughout its history.
Globally, nothing compares to Hanover Messe, which is the jewel in the crown of industrial exhibitions. Over the years, Australia has moved towards the mining sector (specifically AIMEX) as the premiere exhibition event.
Just because the manufacturing sector’s industrial exhibition is no longer with us, it doesn’t mean that manufacturing in Australia is not still strong. There has been a change in the advertising outlook from many companies in manufacturing, and exhibitions are are the razor’s edge of this change.
