A week filled with all aspects of manufacturing is taking the industry to new levels as success and innovation are given the spotlight.

In a drive to showcase the thriving solutions, ideas and the future of manufacturing in Australia, an exhibition and awards night will be held in Melbourne from May 14 to 17.

The country’s most prestigious manufacturing awards night, the Endeavour Awards, and the National Manufacturing Week (NMW) expo are giving the industry and interested parties a chance to promote and celebrate success.

It’s a collaboration that will ensure companies and individuals are recognised in fields such as robotics and automation, the internet of things (IoT), energy solutions and lean manufacturing.
