Conference line-up released for 2019 National Manufacturing Week

The 20th edition of National Manufacturing Week, to be held from 14–17 May at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, is set to feature over 90 leading industry experts as part of this year’s conference program, participating across two content streams.

The 2019 conference aligns to the overall event theme of ‘Industrial Evolution’ and the industry’s transition to increasing process integration and adopting high-tech solutions. Divided into two streams of Industry 4.0 and Connected Manufacturing, each with their own dedicated theatres, the program will provide manufacturing professionals with a platform to connect, engage and be inspired to continue innovating and integrating advanced processes.

Set to open with a welcome from Victorian Minister for Jobs, Innovation & Trade Martin Pakula, followed by a keynote from Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel AO, the conference’s two content streams will offer attendees the latest opinions, advice, developments and research that are revolutionising manufacturing processes. Industry areas of focus to be discussed include automation, additive manufacturing, energy efficiency and cost management, Industrial IoT, industrial safety, grant applications, global expansion strategies and robotics integration.

The 2019 exhibition will meanwhile allow visitors to source solutions from over 200 industrial suppliers showcasing the latest technology, advanced manufacturing products and services. Visitors will be able to navigate through the exhibition floor via six designated product zones that categorise the operational solutions on display, including automation and robotics, engineering, Industrial Internet of Things, safety, welding technology and manufacturing solutions.
