Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds

Callaghan Innovation is proud once again to be involved in EMEX, NZ’s largest trade show for the engineering, manufacturing technology and electronics sectors, held at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds. As a major supporter of EMEX,  Callaghan Innovation is hosting a range of interactive workshops, and an exhibition booth, for businesses to learn from leading industry experts. We are particularly excited to be supporting EMEX this year, following the late cancellation of the 2021 event due to COVID-19.

Workshops: On 2 June we will host a range of workshops featuring expert insights on everything from introducing Lean methodologies to your business, to intellectual property (IP) strategy. Hear from renowned innovators and business leaders, including Callaghan Innovation’s Ross Pearce, Innovation and Design Specialist, Bryan Travers, Lean expert and facilitator, and Anton Blijlevens is a principal at AJ Park, one of NZ’s best-known IP firms. 

  • Introducing Lean to your business: This workshop will introduce businesses to Lean principles, and support them with a range of other business skills, including identifying customer value-add activities and business inefficiencies, and improving planning, staff engagement, inventory and production flow. 

  • Ten Types of Innovation: The Ten Types of Innovation® workshop will help businesses to think beyond product development while giving practical tips on how to create bolder initiatives. 

  • Intellectual Property Strategy: This workshop will give innovative and ambitious New Zealand businesses introductory knowledge, capability and confidence to leverage their Intellectual Property (IP) and intellectual assets to enable growth and reduce risk. 

These workshops will benefit businesses looking to scale up and expand into new markets.  Places are limited, so get in quick. Register here.

Showcase: Callaghan Innovation’s showcase will be running for all three days of EMEX, providing plenty of opportunities to get advice from our leading R&D Solutions experts. Find Callaghan Innovation at booth #1009 in the Innovation Hall. 

Aronui and Industry 4.0: We’re also excited about our new interactive learning space at Callaghan Innovation’s Textile Centre, in Parnell, Auckland. The Aronui Industry 4.0 Navigator is a free interactive learning space which is a guided experience, designed to demystify Industry 4.0 (I4), and inspire business leaders to:

  • think beyond optimising productivity and manufacturing.

  • use I4.0 as a business-wide framework.

  • build a roadmap for change.

You’ll be able to ask the Callaghan Innovation team onsite at EMEX all the questions about this new interactive installation and how it could help your business.
