Registration is now open for National Manufacturing Week
2015, Australia’s biggest – and longest-running – manufacturing industry event.
NMW 2015 will present an exhibition as well as
presentations, networking opportunities and live demonstrations to help
everyone – all levels, and all sectors of industry – gain new ideas for
innovating, collaborating and building competitive strengths.
NMW 2015 is attracting strong exhibitor support, with more
than 120 companies including BOC, BAC Systems, Lincoln Electric, BOSCH,
Klingspor, Supagas, Stratasys, Telstra and other leading brands already
confirming their participation in the event.
Many of these companies will also participate in interactive
demonstrations, running on the exhibition floor throughout the four-day event
that will bring new processes and technologies to life.
NMW 2015 will also present an exceptional conference
program: with world-class speakers sharing their expertise and leading
discussions in two zones, the R&D Hub and Digital Manufacturing Hub.
The R&D Theatre program focuses on innovation and
bringing new ideas to market. Sessions will include Phil Timbrell of Preformed
Line Products presenting unusual approaches to getting an idea to a Fully
Testable Product and Mark Steiner, MD Techome and Hetech will speak on what to
look out for when buying or manufacturing offshore.
Complementary sessions in the Digital Hub will present
speakers including RMIT University’s Gretchen Wilkins and Ian Nazareth
profiling the future factory and Enhar’s Trent Hawkins speaking on increasing productivity.
There will also be plenty of networking opportunities,
including happy hour drinks reception at the conclusion of Day 1, bringing
visitors together with speakers, exhibitors and others in a relaxed setting.
NMW 2015 will be co-located with Austech, the SMART
Logistics conference and Australia’s first complete safety event, the Safety
First Conference & Expo, to harness shared energies from the manufacturing,
transport, building & construction, government and broader industry
NMW 2015 aims to help make the most of the buzz, with a new
feature – the online My Event Planner – giving participants a tool for
scheduling meetings and demos, creating an event timetable and even connecting
with exhibitors and other visitors.
Above all, NMW 2015 will provide opportunities for industry
to come together, to network, collaborate and inspire innovation across
