National Manufacturing Week

National Manufacturing Week, Australia’s largest, longest running manufacturing industry event, returns to Melbourne may 9th – 13th 2017  with industry ‘firsts’ to help propel the industry into the future. Key to this year’s program are co-located events, high profile industry figures presenting case studies and new ideas, as well as exhibitors from around the world with innovative products and services.

NMW2016 will be co-located with headline events showcasing new possibilities for manufacturers, including the Safety First Conference & Expo. Safety First is Australia’s first one-stop safety event that provides a rare opportunity to see safety solutions and talk with leading safety thinkers.

NMW will also co-locate with Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, the Australian education of the world-leading event that will bring new strategies, stories of success and more to help local companies make the most of game-changing 3D printing technologies.

Inside 3D Printing will showcase next generation 3D printers and companies that can help businesses open up new worlds of possibility. The showcase will include Konica Minolta Business Solutions’, with 3D technologies that help companies create working prototypes, parts and custom-made products in a fraction of the time currently required, with industry leading service support by Konica Minolta’s national service organisation.

The showcase will also include energetic local businesses – including Bilby 3D and Sydney 3D Printing – backing global technologies with advice and support for companies looking to leverage new opportunities from this game-changing technology.

NMW will be home to over a thousand innovative products and services, from some 200 European, Asian and local companies. 

Alongside the showcase – and right in the heart of the exhibition floor – NMW’s Seminar Theatre will provide free access to industry experts sharing strategies and case studies on hot-button manufacturing issues. Topics on the agenda include ‘how tos’ for diversifying into other markets, collaboration and innovation, as well as productivity gains through supply chain efficiencies, digital manufacturing and much more.
