As part of @AuManufacturing’s and International Exhibition & Conference Group’s editorial partnership, we look at what’s on at this month’s Modern Manufacturing Expo in Sydney.

The Modern Manufacturing Expo which takes place at the Sydney Showground in September, will feature a one-day conference as part of an exciting education programme.

The Expo’s Smart Manufacturing Conference takes place on 20 September, 2022.

Marie Kinsella, CEO of Expo organisers International Exhibition & Conference (IEC) Group, said: “The conferences present exciting opportunities for Expo delegates to have in-depth discussions on the future of manufacturing in Australia and to hear from leading companies who are actually putting these ideas into action in their own factories.

“Manufacturing leaders and decision-makers can explore the latest technology and equipment available from suppliers, hear of new modernisation and digitisation strategies, and collaborate to forge new alliances.”

Kinsella said that conference visitors were sure to get ‘bang for their buck’ with a jam-packed programme.

Leading companies presenting include KNAPP, IFM, Western Parkland City Authority, Nano Dimension, Universal Robots, Mitsubishi Electric, CSIRO, AusIndustry, MYOB and CISCO Meraki.

Smart Manufacturing Conference

The programme for the Smart Manufacturing Conference on 20 September includes thought-provoking presentations from experts on future-thinking as well as practical topics such as:

  • Smart-sourcing new technologies and equipment
  • The benefits of deep learning AI in the automation process
  • Navigating the additive manufacturing landscape in highly regulated industries
  • Government support and grants available to local manufacturers
  • And optimising production through smart manufacturing.

“At the end of the day, attendees will leave the Smart Manufacturing Conference with a practical understanding of the path to digitisation, the costs involved and the benefits it will bring to both their operations and bottom-line.” .

The Modern Manufacturing Expo will be opened by the Minister for Industry and Science, the Hon Ed Husic MP who will give an address at the Expert Arena on 20 September, 2022.


The Modern Manufacturing Expo takes place from 20-21 September, 2022 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush.
