Growing a Stronger Manufacturing Business – Cairns


Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) in collaboration with Cairns Manufacturing Hub and AusIndustry are delighted to announce Growing Manufacturing Resilience – Cairns.

Join industry from around the region to discuss emerging trends in business, skills requirements for the region, along with the latest advanced manufacturing news.

About this Event

There is no crystal ball that can predict the next crisis. What we can be sure of, however, is that Australia is currently home to one of the most volatile manufacturing industries in the world. Being a competitive manufacturing business today does not necessarily mean that these same success factors future-proof the business for tomorrow.

Companies can take concrete steps to mitigate this volatility and we will share real world case studies and strategies to help build a resilient company.

Explore opportunities to connect with other regional companies, academic researchers, business mentors along with corporate and community partners. View working displays and presentations of Markforged 3D Printing and Haddington Dynamics Dexter Robotics.

The event will have a range of industry speakers and feature Australia’s first Manufacturing Academy.
