National Manufacturing Week 2014

National Manufacturing Week

Each year during National Manufacturing Week we have the opportunity to celebrate and explore Australian Manufacturing. It alternates between Sydney and Melbourne and in 2014 it is being held in Sydney from May 13-16 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

From the messages in the press recently, you would think that manufacturing in Australia is dead. But the truth is a long way from that. Recent announcements from the Automotive Manufacturing sector are disappointing but that is not the only manufacturing we do here. Manufacturing is the equal third largest sector of the Australian economy and the largest sector in Victoria. The sector it is equal in size to is mining. That’s right, the same size as mining!

 

So it is worth looking after a little better than we have been.

 

It kicks off on the 13th May 2014 with the exhibition followed by a networking function and the Endeavour Awards gala dinner. This year we entered the awards so are hoping to have some news about that soon.

 

The National Manufacturing Week networking event this year is being sponsored by the Casey Cardinia Region which is where Successful Endeavours is located. This is a very progressive venture between the City of Casey and the Shire of Cardinia. and a great example of the collaboration we need to become a lot better at in Australia. We are also a member of the Casey Cardinia Business Group which is one of their strategic initiatives.

  1. As well as sponsoring the network function, the Casey Cardinia region will be exhibiting for the duration of National Manufacturing Week.
    Did you know there are over 25,000 skilled workers in manufacturing located within the Casey Cardinia region?
    We look forward to showcasing our region as The Place to Grow in Melbourne’s South East. We will see you there!

  2. That is something I didn’t know. 25,000 skilled workers is quite a large workforce in one sector of the economy.
