Manufacturing industry's night of nights, the 2019 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards, is a celebration of manufacturing excellence. The awards will highlight the importance and strength of the local industry and the bright future of manufacturing in Victoria.

Hosted by the Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade, the Hon Martin Pakula, the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner held on Tuesday 14 May 2019.  The Gala Dinner and Awards provide businesses and individuals working across manufacturing with a great opportunity to connect with leaders from across the manufacturing industry and this year's winners.

In line with National Manufacturing Week, the Awards will adopt the theme of “Industrial Evolution” recognising the innovative, visionary and entrepreneurial businesses that contribute to the strength and future of Victorian Manufacturing.

Victoria’s manufacturing industry currently contributes over $30 billion and the Victorian Government is committed to supporting growth in the state’s manufacturing sector. The Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards illustrate the strength and excellence of Victoria’s manufacturing industry – and its bright future.
