The digital future of Australian manufacturing

The future of manufacturing is likely to involve automation, digitisation and advanced technology, and the upcoming Modern Manufacturing Town Hall event is set to be a demonstration of the hows and whys of this push.

Taking place on 30 March at Waterview Conference Centre, Sydney Olympic Park, the event will feature talks and presentations about manufacturing in Australia and how technology, automation and digital transformation will be a part of it in years to come.

The event also marks the launch of the Modern Manufacturing Expo, which will be taking place from 20–21 September. It will be showcasing the future of manufacturing in Australia with its primary emphasis being on how the use of digital technology can allow for a modern, efficient industry. It is not exclusive to food manufacturing but its insights could undoubtedly prove useful for any sector.

The Modern Manufacturing Town Hall event is supported by the University of Sydney’s Sydney Manufacturing Hub, which is a research facility concentrated on additive manufacturing (that is, 3D printing), materials processing and heat treatment, with a focus on enabling a concept to production pipeline for manufacturers. The space’s facilities are also available for use by companies working to develop their products.

“We are proud to have the official support of the prestigious Sydney Manufacturing Hub at our first ever Town Hall event,” said Marie Kinsella, CEO of IEC Group, the organisation responsible for running the event.

“We hope to see smaller manufacturers in particular attend, as this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the brains trust that will lead Australia to establishing a strong, modern and sustainable manufacturing sector.”

The Modern Manufacturing Town Hall will be taking place at Waterview Conference Centre, Sydney Olympic Park, on 30 March 2022.
