Manufacturers Pavilion

The Manufacturers Pavilion featured presentations from renowned industry experts in a new dedicated event zone. Speakers from industry, politics and science will discuss the possibilities of improving manufacturers’ competitiveness through research, innovation and technology.

The full Manufacturers Pavilion Program is available with speakers bio's and topics.

Supported by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE), and sponsored by the Advanced Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (AMCRC) and Deloitte, the Manufacturers Pavilion will be a focal point and provide a great forum for local manufacturers to put themselves in front of Austech visitors, many of whom outsource and contract out their work.

For the first time, the Manufacturers Pavilion included speeches and discussions with key industry people who give their time for free in order to impart their knowledge. The speaking program is proudly supported by the Commonwealth Government appointed Industry Supplier Advocates:

• Dr Marc Newson, Clean Technologies
• Bruce Griffiths, Rail
• William Angove, Automotive
• Christian Larsen, Minerals

Other key speakers include:
• Professor Goran Roos – Chairman, Advanced Manufacturing Council SA and renowned strategic thinker
• Morten Andersen – Director, Bombardier Australia
• Paul McCarthy – Rock Solid Marketing
• David Lidden – Supply Chain Director – Australasia, Joy Global

Professor Roos’ speech will focus on establishing a framework for working towards higher profitability in a high-cost environment.

“Australian firms have to change their world view as well as their behaviour if they are to become successful in a high-cost environment,” says Professor Roos. “The primary responsibility for this falls in the firm’s management, but government also has a responsibility to both facilitate and enable these changes to take place.”
