National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2012 returns to Sydney this May, and it’s going to be big: 10,000 anticipated visitors, over 300 local and international manufacturing industry suppliers and a record 12 Product Zones.

Co-located with Austech - Australia’s premier advanced manufacturing and machine tool exhibition - NMW 2012 will be occupy most of the Sydney Showground from 8 to 11 May. Attendance is free and for trade only. NMW recommends visitors register online to avoid the queues.

For exhibitors, NMW 2012 is an opportunity to meet over 10,000 potential clients; for visitors, it’s the place to source the latest products and services across all industry sectors. Visitors can also gain relevant education, debate critical industry issues, obtain technical information and network with peers.

This year, NMW will feature innovations from many of the world’s leading manufacturing suppliers. Smaller companies are also featured, reflecting Australia’s growing capabilities in manufacturing for low-volume, high-value niche markets.

NMW 2012 sees two new product zones added to the event: Sustainable Manufacturing and Metals & Composites. Each zone is colour coded, making it easier for visitors to find areas of specific interest. In addition to the two new Zones, NMW 2012 will once again host the Air Technology, Automation & Robotics, Electrical, Electronics, Engineering, Health & Safety, Information Technology, Materials Handling, Process Control & Instrumentation and Welding Technology Zones.

“We intend that all visitors to NMW 2012 come away with new contacts and ideas for their businesses - so that NMW, as a whole, achieves its goal of being the event that strengthens Australia’s manufacturing sector,” said Paul Baker, Exhibition Director for NMW 2012.

NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell has backed NMW 2012, saying, “By bringing together customers and suppliers, and promoting new technologies and innovations, trade events such as NMW are crucial to ensuring our local businesses remain internationally competitive.”
