SouthMACH is the machinery of business
The South’s premier tech trade show has been reinvigorated for 2015. New owner XPO Exhibitions says the company has worked hard to ensure that visitors and exhibitors alike get great business value from the time they invest.
The event is close to sold out, says XPO. “There aren’t many spaces left. If you want to get your products and services in front of thousands of people keen to find the best and latest, then you need to act now and give XPO a call,” advises Aad van der Poel, sales manager for the event.
However, there is still plenty of time for visitors to sign up, which is recommended because there is no gate fee to visit for those who pre-register for the trade-only event.
Visitors’ time will be well-invested, says van der Poel, with the chance to engage with exhibitors both local and international. “If you are an engineer – mechanical, design, consultant, electrical, machinist, communications technician/manager, supervisor, technical operator, operations manager or similar, then SouthMACH offers the tools, technology and services to work smarter.
“With one visit to this show you can see all the big names from your industry and can really weigh up the benefits of each before you make the big decision. You can then be sure you are getting the very best. This biennial event gives you the opportunity to come face-to-face with the experts behind the key innovations entering the New Zealand market.”
Leussink Engineering has been exhibiting at SouthMACH for many years and finds visitors want to learn new technologies and witness state of the art equipment that could give their company the competitive advantage. Spokesman Russell Brinkworth says Leussink has been manufacturing Demmeler jigging and fabrication systems for over 30 years. “People visiting our stand can get handson and receive professional demonstrations outlining how Demmeler can improve productivity and provide quality components whilst reducing overall tooling costs. They will be able to discuss their company’s requirements with proposals instantly formulated to their needs and any orders placed at SouthMACH will receive special pricing.”
Another exhibitor is kanDO Innovation Ltd and its TV star robot Baxter, an interactive production robot that has been designed to work safely with human workers, yet be f lexible enough to also adapt to a changes in production. With a face displaying its feelings – fortunately never anger – Baxter is well worth a look at SouthMACH – Horncastle Arena, Christchurch, 22–23 July 2015.
