EMEX 2018 highlights hot topics in Engineering and Manufacturing

As EMEX 2018 is gearing up to be the largest event in its almost 40 year history, showcasing the latest technologies and products, it will also address the most pressing issues industry is facing.

How do NZ companies address the growing lack of skilled labour and succession problems? What are we doing in areas as work safety and what practical steps are we making to improve our not so great record?

What does all this talk about Industry 4.0 actually mean for you? Innovation is a fancy and very popular word but what qualifies as an innovative product? Who can help your business to become more innovative?

You will find answers to all these questions at EMEX 2018 by talking to the experts and visiting the Innovation Quarter in the newly added Hall 1, where advisors from Callaghan Innovation are happy to discuss opportunities on how to tap into the Government R & D funds. You may even be the lucky winner of the $5,000 prize.

The Innovation Quarter will showcase amazing technology that is revolutionising the industry.

EMEX 2018 is proud to host the Employment & Training Hub where you can discuss your needs with ‘The Manufacturers Network’ and the Maintenance Engineers Society of New Zealand (MESNZ), who both are enthusiastic supporters of Competenz and M.I.T., who will run ‘speed meets’ will feature amazing technology and activities that include apprenticeship workshops and ‘speed meets,’ where employers are coupled to young upcoming talent, aiming for a career in Engineering and/or Manufacturing.

The third reason why you should visit Hall 1 is the Work Safe Advisory Lounge, where you can have a meaningful conversation with specialist about the real workplace health & safety you’re required to implement. Myths are taken away really quickly when talking to one of the experts.

If you are time strapped (you shouldn’t of course as there is so much to see and learn!) please go and listen to one or more of the Seminars presented by experts in their specific fields, covering these topics extensively. Go and look at the preliminary program on www.emex.co.nz and lock it your diary! 3 full days of talks, presentations and discussions on what’s keeping the industry busy!

If you’re interested in promoting your products to the market place and join as an exhibitor, now would be the time to come on board! It provides you with enough time to prepare and be ready for the estimated 5,000+ industry professionals visiting EMEX 2018.
