Australia’s premier advanced precision manufacturing and machine tool
exhibition AUSTECH 2015 will open in Melbourne next May. Co-located with
National Manufacturing Week (NMW), AUSTECH will once again be a must-attend
event for manufacturing professionals from around Australia in 2015.
To be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
from 26 to 29 May, AUSTECH 2015, organised by AMTIL (Australian
Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited), is expected to attract large
numbers of industrial decision makers.
Early results on participating exhibitors indicate that 75% of floor
space is already booked. AUSTECH Exhibition Manager Kim Warren comments that about
87% of the attendees at AUSTECH are in middle or senior management positions,
forming an important audience segment as they play a key role in shaping the
future of Australian manufacturing.
AUSTECH organiser AMTIL launched the ‘Manufacturers Pavilion’ at its
2013 edition in Melbourne to better serve this particular segment. To be an
important part of the 2015 exhibition, the Pavilion will once again highlight
the capabilities of Australia’s precision engineering and advanced manufacturing
industry and provide Australian component manufacturers, precision engineering
firms, toolmakers, advanced manufacturers and general engineering companies the
platform and opportunity to exhibit their unique strengths. AMTIL is also organising
a comprehensive four-day speaker program in the Manufacturers Pavilion after
its huge success in 2013.
AUSTECH 2015 will be co-located with National Manufacturing Week and
Safety First Expo, as well as the Inside 3D Printing conference, the largest
professional 3D printing and additive manufacturing event worldwide.
AUSTECH will once again welcome students and educators to expose them to
career opportunities in manufacturing through hands-on learning and networking
with industry professionals.
