“Australia’s manufacturing sector has weathered the downturn and is now expanding again – suggesting we have a lead on the rest of the world that could yield real opportunities in 2010,” said Paul Baker, Exhibition Manager at Reed Exhibitions.

“NMW2010 will be the event that strengthens Australian manufacturing through technology, innovation and education. Our focus is on creating an optimum trading environment for all participants: for instance, the exhibition has been redesigned around ten product zones — colour-coded to clearly define one industry sector from the next, to make it easier for buyers and suppliers to find each other.”

In 2008, the Sydney NMW attracted more than 11,000 unique trade visitors and over 350 exhibiting companies, making it Australia’s largest manufacturing exhibition.

Taking place at Sydney Olympic Park, in the centre of Australia’s largest manufacturing region, the 2010 event will be held from May 11-14. For more information, visit www.nationalmanufacturingweek.com.au
