APPMA partners with Modern Manufacturing Expo

The organiser of the Modern Manufacturing Expo has announced a partnership with the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).

Supported by both the state and federal government, the Modern Manufacturing Expo aims to help modernise and digitise Australia’s manufacturing capabilities and competitiveness to drive an advanced and sustainable manufacturing nation. The APPMA has a strong history in packaging and processing and provides strong industry connections and a well-established membership base across Australia.

According to Michael Moran, APPMA CEO, the association is focused on exploring opportunities that further support and add value to their members in the NSW region.

“The Modern Manufacturing Expo is a great fit for the APPMA members and is complementary to the APPEX (Australasian Processing and Packaging Expo) show. The two events will dovetail well and support our growing member base in NSW,” he said.

IEC Group CEO Marie Kinsella said the primary focus of the Modern Manufacturing Expo is about guiding the industry following the widespread call to implement smart manufacturing.

“An annual show is what is needed to keep on top of emerging trends when working with this type of technology, which is fast evolving and always innovating,” she said. “This expo has become more than a showcase of products; we see our role at the Modern Manufacturing Expo as bringing together like-minded companies and associations who are driven to transform Australian manufacturing. It really is a collaborative space, and we want visitors to leave the event feeling empowered to make the journey from traditional to modern manufacturing.”

“Manufacturing is resurging and onshoring is important. Innovation across manufacturing is a crucial development for the future of the industry itself,” Moran said. “While APPEX will provide a platform to unite the entire processing and packaging community with Australia’s largest trade event for our industry showcasing new products and innovations, we also understand the need for an ‘off-year’ event that provides a flexible and agile space where companies can bounce ideas off each other, showcase the latest technology and explore collaboration to make these bigger developments happen.

“We are excited to join the Modern Manufacturing Expo at its inaugural event and look forward to partnering with them as they move forward with their annual expos in NSW,” he added. “The event and associated conferences and seminars provide our members in the region with an opportunity to not only showcase their technologies and products but also to network and collaborate with the innovation community which this show is bound to foster.”
