The growth trend within the engineering and manufacturing industries already visible at Emex 2016, sees next year’s show set to be the biggest event in its 40 years history.  Demand now sees it expand and further develop its reputation as the premier Technology event to showcase and see services relating to the manufacturing, engineering and electronics industries.

The response from industry has been so great that another hall has been added. Featuring amazing examples of technology, inspiring manufacturing and innovation excellence, the new hall will be a hub for innovation, industry training and employment opportunities.

EMEX 2018 will look quite different from previous editions. There will be more categories represented and more activities to participate in. In conjunction with the Manufacturers' Network and Competenz, the industry apprenticeship organisation as well as the Manukau Institute of Technology, there will be apprenticeship workshops and speed meet sessions for motivated high school students looking to start a career in engineering or manufacturing. 

There will be a myriad of live demonstrations at regular times of the latest equipment such as CNC Machine Tooling, Laser cutting, Waterjet cutting as well as welding with augmented reality competitions and much more.

If you have ever given it thought to be part of EMEX as an exhibitor, now is the time to do it and to benefit from the increased visitation, a trend that started with the 2016 show. The expansion of the event has opened up more space for exhibitors that wish to bring their products to a wider audience.

EMEX 2018 has also some very attractive sponsorships available. Please get in touch if you’re interested in getting more exposure at the show by picking up one of these options. With thousands through the show doors, it’s a great place to be seen and promote what your company can offer.

Three-quarters of the over 5,000 attendees are responsible for buying decisions! Close to 80% of the total number of visitors will make contact with an exhibitor after the show.

These numbers speak for themselves!

EMEX 2018 is to be held at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland from May 1-3, 2018.
