AUSTECH 2015: 75% of floor space 'already booked'

16 December, 2014

A telltale sign of its burgeoning popularity, 75 per cent of floor space has already been booked for AUSTECH 2015 – a pace which is even further than the record set by the event in 2013, organisers have said.

"With the recent move to a two year cycle, early signs indicate that we can look forward to a robust event," AUSTECH Exhibition Manager Kim Warren said.

"AUSTECH is the place to be next May. About 87 per cent of the attendees at AUSTECH are in middle or senior management positions.

"This group is an important audience segment – not just because of its size, but also because these professionals play a key role in shaping the future of Australian manufacturing."

Manufacturers Pavilion

In order to better serve this key group, AUSTECH organiser AMTIL launched the "Manufacturers Pavilion" at its 2013 edition in Melbourne.

The Pavilion will once again be an important part of the 2015 show, highlighting the capabilities of Australia's precision engineering and advanced manufacturing industry and providing Australian component manufacturers, precision engineering firms, toolmakers, advanced manufacturers and general engineering companies the opportunity to exhibit their unique capabilities.

AMTIL is currently organising a comprehensive four-day speaker program in the Manufacturers Pavilion after its huge success in 2013.

Inside 3D Printing conference

AUSTECH 2015 will also be co-located with National Manufacturing Week and Safety First Expo, as well as the Inside 3D Printing conference.

Inside 3D Printing is the largest professional 3D printing and additive manufacturing event worldwide. As a conference attendee, you'll be able to explore the business applications of 3D printing through conference sessions led by industry experts, demonstrations of the latest 3D printers and services, and programming for designers, professionals, and makers.

More than 70 exhibitors have already registered for AUSTECH and many of the key industry players and major machine tool companies are back at next year's show, underlining the importance of Australia's advanced manufacturing industry.

Moreover, AUSTECH will once again welcome students and educators to expose them to the career opportunities in manufacturing through hands-on learning and networking with industry professionals.

AUSTECH is an advanced precision manufacturing and machine tool exhibition, co-located with National Manufacturing Week (NMW). It's one of the most important events on the calendar for manufacturing professionals from around Australia in 2015.

AUSTECH will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 26 to 29 May.

Show organiser AMTIL (Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited) is looking forward to welcoming the entire AUSTECH community comprised of more than 10,000 industrial decision makers to interact and see the latest technology to find answers to their manufacturing problems and challenges.

"Be sure to put AUSTECH on your calendar 26 to 29 May, and join us in Melbourne where you will meet the people that are moving Australian manufacturing forward," Warren said.
