EMEX 40th ANNIVERSARY! Welcome to New Zealand’s largest engineering and manufacturing innovation trade show. A trade show that has spanned four decades showcasing new technology, products, solutions and know-how. It’s highly appropriate that we recognise the long legacy of this show given that this is our 40th anniversary. Andy Hobbs along with his team had much initiative and drive during EMEX’s infancy to grow this show from it’s foundations before it was handed to dmg World Media (part of the Daily Mail Group UK) and then subsequently XPO. As the subsequent owners and organisers, we too have worked hard to further the show and continue a great relationship with Andy, Greg, Keith, Lisa and the wider team at Hayley Media, publishers of Engineering News industry magazine. A special mention across all our media partners, and the 180+ exhibitors and industry associations who stayed the course to EMEX 2021 after our unavoidable 2020 postponement (along with 17 other shows we rescheduled). As event organisers we work hard to advocate the importance of events like EMEX in kick starting the economy again. At no other time has an event like this been so important to the recovery of the sector. A big thank you too for the resilience and resolve of our loyal industry visitors. We’ve had a strong pre-registration that will see many thousands visit EMEX over the 3 days. Buoyed by the exhibitor new product innovations and a larger than ever schedule of speakers and special features means you will not leave disappointed. So what have we got lined up for you? For starters, four very full exhibition halls packed with thousands of new products, solutions and technology. The Innovation Quarter featuring examples of the latest Kiwi technologies; launch of the Industry 4 Demonstration Network - a dedicated mobile showcase that begins it’s nationwide journey at EMEX; Manufacturing Futures series of presentations; Callaghan Innovation Workshops presenting what Industry 4.0 can achieve for your business; the ever popular DfAM course with Professor Olaf Diegel; Auckland Unlimited’s Business Support Hub with free business growth advice; show specials; onsite prizes and so much more!! This year’s line up of workshops and seminars is the biggest ever, delivering close to 30 free sessions for all visitors to attend. Several highlights include NZ’s very own Rocket Man, Peter Beck from Rocket Lab - his keynote session on Monday at 11.30am is set to be full to capacity so be sure to arrive early. On Tuesday Callaghan Innovation host the Manufacturing Futures series presenting how the advanced and connected technologies of Industry 4.0 can help your business secure a bright future. Add to this a Design for Additive Manufacturing Course and a dedicated series of Innovation Workshops the biggest challenge for you is to ensure you plan your time well so as not to miss any of it! Finally, as a major event organiser and collaborator of the Events Safety Code, XPO asks that you please download and scan upon entry the government Covid app to help trace contact record your attendance (in addition to familiarising yourself of all safety signage, liberally utilising hand santiser and staying home if you are unwell). Have a great show!
