Electronex expo moving to MCEC in 2019
Following this year’s edition of Electronex – The Electronics Design & Assembly Expo and Conference, held from 5–6 September at Rosehill Gardens, Sydney, the show organisers have announced that the 2019 expo will be held in the new extension of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The expo alternates annually between Sydney and Melbourne, and at the last Melbourne event in 2017, more than 80% of visitors indicated that they would prefer to see future events held at the MCEC. This year’s Sydney show was meanwhile judged an outstanding success, with around 1000 trade visitors and delegates attending the two-day event.
“The move to this state-of-the-art venue will take the show to the next level and allow for more exhibition space, following the sellout of the two previous Melbourne shows at Melbourne Park Function Centre,” Australasian Exhibition and Events (AEE) said. “Next year’s show will also feature more companies with advanced manufacturing solutions, which are an integral part of the electronics manufacturing sector.”
Electronex was first held in 2010 and has grown to become an esteemed exhibition for electronics manufacturing and assembly in Australia. Reflecting the growth of high-tech niche manufacturing in Australia, at the recent Sydney expo more than 45% of the trade visitors said they had not previously attended Electronex. The event attracts a dedicated audience of engineers and senior decision-makers, with 80% of the visitors saying they had not attended any other major manufacturing expos in the past 12 months.
Over 90 companies were represented on stands, with many exhibitors featuring new products at the expo. Exhibitors reported that it was one of the most successful exhibitions they had attended, with a quality audience of high-level decision-makers seeking new products and new innovations and solutions or their business. 90% of visitors indicated that they had met companies they were not previously aware of and 85% discovered new products or services they were not aware of, reinforcing the important role of exhibitions and face-to-face contact in today’s digital world.
The SMCBA Surface Mount Conference was also held concurrently with the expo and was well attended with over 100 delegates participating in the two-day technical workshops. Free seminars were also held on the expo floor on a range of hot topics to complement the conference workshops.
