Workplace Health & Safety Show expands with new co-event

The Workplace Health & Safety Show 2021 is heading back to Sydney in September with over 100 brands exhibiting.

Taking place from September 7-8 at Sydney Showground, the show will have a greater focus this year on health and wellbeing following the toll taken on mental health by many over the last 12 months.

Marie Kinsella, CEO of IEC Group Australia, said there was “an eagerness for vendors to take part in face-to-face events again”.

“We are delighted to confirm numerous companies have confirmed their exhibition booking at the Sydney event, including Major Exhibition Sponsor, Skytrust, Donesafe, Australian Welding Supplies and Cirlock to name a few,” she said.

Covid-19 has also increased the need for Australia to grow its manufacturing capabilities, with the federal government announcing $1.5 billion in new funding to be invested over the next four years to help make Australian manufacturers more competitive, resilient and able to scale-up to compete globally.

With this in mind a new event, the Modern Manufacturing Expo, will be co-located at the Workplace Health and Safety Show, bringing together a showcase of the latest in product resources and technology for Australian manufacturers.
