In a strong affirmation of their commitment to Australian manufacturers of commercial and entertainment technology, ENTECH together with the Australian Commercial and Entertainment Technologies Association (ACETA) announced a new initiative, the ACETA Hall of Australian Manufacturers which will be located at the ENTECH 2013 show in July.
The ACETA Hall of Australian Manufacturers will be a dedicated space for visiting international and local industry professionals to see first-hand innovative products and services offered by leading Australian designers and manufacturers.
Frank Hinton, ACETA President said getting the message out to domestic and international buyers that Australian manufacturing is ‘open for business’ is a major factor behind the new initiative.
“Australian manufacturing is producing some amazingly clever and innovative gear.
“The Hall at ENTECH will provide the resources manufacturing companies need to help their businesses grow. This will include information on seeking R&D support through to assistance with exports.
“As ENTECH is the show for entertainment technology, it seemed a perfect fit to work together to get the message and the information to those who need it,” said Mr Hinton.
Stephen Dallimore, Event Manager, Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF) the owner of ENTECH 2013 is hoping to turn the tables on the representation of manufacturing businesses to the country and the world.
“Representation of manufacturers is not high at industry trade shows in Australia. However, the ACETA Hall of Australian Manufacturers at ENTECH 2013 will provide a major spotlight for industry suppliers to promote high level engineering within the national and international market place,” said Mr Dallimore.
International buyers can expect to gain access to Austrade services, giving expert advice on the Australian industry capabilities, investing and buying from the Australian market place.
Australian visitors alike will learn from real-life experiences from Australian manufacturers already distributing into overseas markets and understand how international trade is benefitting.
Running alongside the ACETA Hall of Australian Manufacturers will be a comprehensive seminar program on Australian manufacturing with expert panellists offering their knowledge and insight in these public events.
