Next year’s inaugural Australian Manufacturing Week (AMW) exhibition is selling out fast, with around 90% of the floor space already booked for the event, to be held in Melbourne in March.

Sales for AMW 2022, Australia’s premier manufacturing solutions event, have been so strong that AMTIL, the event’s organisers, has taken a further bay at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC), bringing the overall floor space for the AMW exhibition from 15,000sqm to 16,500sqm. Even with this expanded footprint, AMTIL expects the show to be fully sold out many months in advance of its opening on 8 March.

Exhibitors who have booked space for AMW are already benefiting from significant exposure as a result of pre-show marketing activity by AMTIL.

“Riding on the coat tails of AMTIL’s ongoing promotion of AMW is just one of the advantages of locking in a stand early for next year’s exhibition,” says Kim Banks, AMW Exhibition Manager and Head of Events at AMTIL. “The sooner you get your stand locked in and announce it to your target markets, the quicker you can start putting yourself in the box seat to develop great early interest in your company’s presence at the event.”

According to Banks, it’s never too early for companies to start publicising their participation in a major industry event such as AMW: “When your promotional work combines with the marketing being undertaken by the event organisers, it has a multiplier effect, creating a real buzz of expectation throughout the industry. At AMTIL we’re already seeing that effect – the earlier you book, the bigger the benefit.”

The AMW website features a full directory listing all the organisations who have signed up to exhibit at the show. Companies can upload a wealth of information on their exhibitor listing, including contact details, company profiles and product info, social media links, and more.

“The ‘WHO’S EXHIBITING’ link on the website is already creating quite a buzz among prospective exhibitors, as they check to see which of their competition is already on board for the expo,” adds Banks. “I think for a lot of people, when they see who is going to be at the show, they realise they really can’t afford not to be there.”

The inaugural edition of Australian Manufacturing Week (AMW) will take place at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from 8-11 March 2022. For more information on exhibiting at AMW, please contact Anne Samuelsson, Head of Sales at AMTIL on 0400 115 225 or at
