IMTS will be held at Chicago’s McCormick Place Sept. 8-13, 2014, and next year's theme is “Come Together.” This serves as a call to action for you to come interact at IMTS and see the latest technology to get ideas and find answers to your manufacturing problems and challenges.
Show organizers note that early results on participating exhibitors and exhibitor floor square footage contracted are both ahead of the IMTS 2012 pace at 1,117 (a 23% increase) and 1.151 million net square feet (an 8% increase) respectively.
“There is nothing like IMTS. It’s an entire industry of more than 100,000 manufacturing professionals in one place, at the same time, with one focus – advanced manufacturing,” said Peter Eelman, Vice President - Exhibitions and Communications at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which produces and owns IMTS. “They come together and leave inspired. From never-before-seen technology to educational opportunities and the pure fun of seeing technology in action, IMTS is the place to be next September. IMTS 2012 ranked highly on Trade Show Executive’s Fastest 50 Class of 2012 which recognizes top performing shows in each of three metrics — net square feet, number of exhibiting companies and attendance. We intend to repeat this success in 2014 by bringing the most inspiring industry event to our community.”
