EMEX 2016 - set to be the biggest in over a decade

With still nearly 4 months to go until kick-off, one of New Zealand’s largest industry trade events EMEX (Engineering, Manufacturing and Electronics Exhibition) is well on its way to being a sell-out event making it one of the largest for many years.

Over 130 national and international exhibiting companies have already confirmed they’ll be there showcasing the latest technologies, products and services that will Inspire Manufacturing and Innovation Excellence. Add to this plans to further capitalise on a strong 2014 event that achieved over 25% growth in industry visitors, EMEX 2016 is  once more shaping up to be the leading event for the engineering, manufacturing, machinery, electronics and technology industries.

The latest high tech and innovative equipment, in some cases Southern Hemisphere firsts, will be showcased at the ASB Showgrounds on the 31st of May, 1st & 2nd of June this year.

Companies such as AmProm, Plazmax, Haas and many others will be bringing to the event the very latest innovations with cutting edge products and technology. Amprom, for example, will be bringing the latest fibre laser cutting machine which visitors can see in full action.

The EMEX 2016 theme of Inspiring Manufacturing and Innovation Excellence will be dominant over the three days through live product demonstrations, special features and a very full schedule of industry led education and learning Seminars. 

The schedule will cover a variety of topics such as  ‘Additive Manufacturing’, which also includes a Callaghan Innovation Network event, ‘Robotics’, ‘Workplace Health & Safety’ and Keynote presentations by Industry leaders from NZMEA, Metals NZ, MESNZ and NEIDA.

“There is very strong industry support for EMEX 2016,” says EMEX Sales Manager Aad van der Poel, “Which, I believe, reflects the current industry and economic sentiment. We see many exhibitors returning after a more challenging period. 

As businesses gain confidence and adopt a more positive outlook, EMEX 2016 will adding a ‘Bringing Manufacturing Home’ theme, showcasing amazing examples of successful hi-tech Kiwi Manufacturing capability.

“Every EMEX, the buzz grows. With world-class seminars, the cream of suppliers, a myriad of opportunities to network and do beneficial business this is the not to be missed event for 2016”

EMEX 2016 runs from 31 May to 2 June at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. Free registration is now open for Industry Professionals wishing to attend.
