This year's event highlighted North American mold builders in a more prominent way than years past simply by the increased number of moldmaking exhibitors showcasing their capabilities. Several moldmaking exhibitors stated that attendees walked into the amerimold and directly to their booths looking for North American mold builders!

Creative Blow Mold Tooling of Lee's Summit, Missouri said amerimold was very well attended. According to the company, "The technical conference sessions on both days were meaningful, of interest and well delivered. The exhibit hall at the Novi Convention Center had a great layout for traffic flow, which made it easy for Expo attendee’s to spend time in the exhibitor’s displays. Also noted was the the Knowledge Centers that added a valuable format in a casual environment for expanding learning opportunities. There was a lot of interest from show attendee’s to connect with vendors, discuss the quality needed and meet supply-chain deadlines."
