Investment opportunities in the Northern Territory

AMGC in collaboration with The Northern Territory Government (NTG) is proud to present ‘Investment opportunities in the Northern Territory‘ during Australian Manufacturing Week 2023

About this Event

The Northern Territory (NT) is fast becoming Australia’s manufacturing export gateway to Asia and beyond. Join AMGC and NTG to learn how you can unlock opportunities that are happening right now in the NT.

NTG has invested $8.75 million over a five year deal in partnership with AMGC which will fast-track innovation projects and generate millions of dollars in co-investment. This will be achieved through the appointment of a dedicated NT director, Charmaine Phillips to drive industry engagement and foster collaboration and the creation of the Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem (AME) Fund of $7.5 million.

At this lunch event, you will learn how to access the AME Fund of $7.5 million, understand the Territory Economic Reconstruction Commission report and the key manufacturing areas of priority in the NT, enjoy a light lunch and network with like-minded manufacturers.

Hear from the following speakers:

  • Luana Cormac, Chief Operating Officer, Investment Territory
  • Charmaine Phillips, NT Director, AMGC

Join AMGC and NTG to learn about what the NT has to offer to you and build a stronger network that could potentially lead to successful collaborations.

Lessons from Australia’s most innovative manufacturers

AMGC in collaboration with @AuManufacturing is proud to present ‘Lessons from Australia’s most innovative manufacturers’ during Australian Manufacturing Week 2023

About this Event

The idea that innovation is important to manufacturers is not a controversial one, but what makes a company innovative? How does this help them? What does it mean when we say “innovation”?

AMGC is teaming up with @AuManufacturing, to provide a panel discussion examining these questions and highlighting the successes of Australian manufacturers.

@AuManufacturing is currently running a campaign to identify the most innovative manufacturers in Australia. At this event, you will hear from companies, each of them arguably highly innovative in their own way, and each of them nominees for Australia’s 50 Most Innovative Manufacturers list.

Each manufacturer has its own understanding of and approach to innovation. Each is solving important problems of global relevance, and each is prospering by being better, not cheaper.

@AuManufacturing Australia’s 50 Most Innovative Manufacturers campaign has been made possible by the generous support of  MYOBSMC Corporation Australia, and Bosch Australia Manufacturing Solutions. Those interested in nominating for the list can do so here.

Join us at this event for a panel discussion, networking and light refreshments.
