National Manufacturing Week to highlight growth opportunities

National Manufacturing Week 2016 (May 11 - 13, Sydney Showground) is shaping up as a powerful forum for manufacturers and allied industries who are seeking new opportunities for business growth. NMW 2016 will represent renewed industry dynamism, with exhibitors, industry leaders and others focusing on products, services and solutions that support manufacturing innovation.
NMW had a major impact on industry when last held in Sydney two years ago: attracting some 6,000 visitors (nearly half being senior executives or engineers) who rated the event highly. In fact, an independent survey found that eight out of ten NMW visitors left with plans for investing in technologies or services they'd seen at the event.
“One of the real advantages of being at NMW”, comments Richard Denmead, Director of Penrith-based dry ice cleaning business Cryonomic,” is that you get to see many technologies in action, giving you a real-world insight into how they might help your business move ahead.”
NMW 2016 will build on its track record, with a new focus on emerging opportunities through its co-location with Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, the Sydney edition of the world's largest 3D printing event, and will also be co-located with the Safety First Conference & Expo, Australia's one-stop safety event.
NMW’s Seminar Theatre offers free access to industry experts presenting strategies and case studies on vital R&D and Digital topics, to put manufacturing professionals at the leading edge of the industry. Due to popular demand, NMW will also feature an expanded demonstration program, delivering the opportunity to see and evaluate new technologies in action.
Registration for NMW is free for trade visitors. Register now at, pre-registration also means you'll skip the queues when the doors open in Sydney, May 11- 13 2016.
