National Manufacturing Week 2017

National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2017 will once again showcase thought leaders in manufacturing in its central R&D Hub presentation theatre, Safety First theatre, and a range of co-located special events.

Following the strong feedback from our speaker program in recent years, Australia's premier manufacturing trade event will return to Melbourne in 2017 with a strong content program featuring presentations and demonstrations from experts and exhibitors, linking industry and visitors with the latest research, technology, innovations and best practice in manufacturing.

We would like to invite those that wish to be considered as a speaker or facilitator as part of this agenda to submit their interest by Wednesday November 30th 2016.
