The Modern Manufacturing Expo is set to once again bring the industry together to explore and highlight the latest advancements and innovations in manufacturing during the highly anticipated 2023 Expo in Sydney this September.
“The 2022 Modern Manufacturing Expo was an overwhelming success, visitors over the course of two days and highlighted the need for the industry to come together again for in-person events in a post-COVID environment,” says Marie Kinsella, CEO of the International Exhibition & Conference (IEC) Group. “We expect this year’s edition to be even bigger and better than before with a focus on our 2023 theme: ‘Connected, Automated & Digital Transformation’.”
“Automation has been in the spotlight with the recent worldwide popularity of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools and our 2023 theme is intended to explore how these tools and technologies can be better harnessed by manufacturers and the industry at large,” she adds.
The 2023 Modern Manufacturing Expo will take place from 20-21 September at the Sydney Showground in Sydney Olympic Park and like last year, is free to attend. “Free registration to the Modern Manufacturing Expo ensures that as many manufacturers and industry professionals as possible are able to benefit from the resources and expert knowledge on offer,” explains Marie.
Designed to progress excellence and innovation in Australian manufacturing, the Expo will highlight the leading-edge products, equipment, technologies and software local manufacturers have at their disposal.
This ties in to the strategy of Modern Manufacturing Expo Supporting Partner, The NSW Government, who recognises that manufacturing is undergoing a transformation across the industrialised world. Key events such as the Expo help further NSW’s commitment to harnessing our natural resources and ensuring the industry’s continued strength.
“It is vital that local manufacturers keep abreast of innovation and the latest technologies as they have the potential to power up operations and boost the speed and efficiency to bring new ideas and products to market,” says Marie.
Expert Arena and Smart Manufacturing Conference allow visitors to dive deeper
In addition to the Modern Manufacturing Expo, attendees can take advantage of the two co-located events on offer: the Expert Arena and Smart Manufacturing Conference.
Access to the Expert Arena is included with Modern Manufacturing Expo registration and offers visitors the opportunity to listen to short and sharp information sessions by key manufacturing industry professionals. “These expert presentations are hugely valuable as they provide insight, wisdom and best practice,” says Marie.
Marie encourages those who want to dive deeper into what lies ahead for Australian manufacturing to sign up for the Smart Manufacturing Conference. “You’ll hear from some of the greatest innovators from Australia and around the world as they share best practices for harnessing smart technologies to reduce operating and capital costs whilst increasing profitability.”
Marie concludes by sharing her excitement for the digital transformation journey that lies ahead: “Australia’s new manufacturing era has arrived and now is your opportunity to help shape the agenda!”
Note: Workplace Health & Safety Show
The Modern Manufacturing Expo is co-located with the 2023 Workplace Health & Safety Show, a must attend event for anyone responsible for keeping their workplace safe, in all industries including manufacturing, construction, mining, local government, hospitals, transport and more.
