IMTS Recap: Another one for the Books

IMTS 2010 was nothing less than the premier event that everyone has come to expect. The latest installment was the 8th largest edition in its 28-event history.

A total of 1,728 companies from 30 countries filled 1,180 booths with 1,137,375 sq. ft. of the latest advances in manufacturing technology. Attendees totaling 82,411 from more than 100 countries came to see and buy the equipment, tooling, and services they’ll need to maintain the competitive edge to compete in their area of manufacturing.

“We are ecstatic that IMTS 2010 met and, in many cases, exceeded our exhibitors’ and visitors’ expectations,” stated AMT Vice President – Exhibitions and Communications Peter Eelman. “The show was lively and many exhibitors expressed some surprise and satisfaction with the quantity and quality of attendees.” Early reports suggest that many significant orders were booked during the show.

The many special features and attractions at this year’s show were also well received. The Emerging Technology Center, Advanced Manufacturing Center, the re-tooled Industry & Technology Conference, Manufacturing Museum and NIMS Student Summit all had healthy traffic.

IMTS 2012 will be held September 10-15, 2012, and space sales have begun at a brisk pace. Exhibitors, don’t miss out – you can register for booth space now to be part of the initial 2012 assignment. The deadline is October 11, 2010.
