¡§The finals of the ¡¥Challenge Electrical Apprentice of the Year¡¦ competition will take place at the show with the winners receiving their awards on the last day (Thursday 16 May),¡¨ says Bob Deacon.

¡§These people are the next generation and will appreciate the support of others in the industry they aspire to contribute to as they sweat it out in the competition finals. It will be a lot of fun and very exciting as these very bright young people put themselves to the ultimate test in front of thousands of industry professionals.

¡§EMEX 2002 will be a fabulous show with all the latest manufacturing and engineering technology in action. Visit EMEX 2002 and we guarantee you will come away full of new ideas.

¡§EMEX is where the New Zealand industry meets for a vision of the future.¡¨
