Based on exhibitor sales and current plans, the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016 is expected to be one of the largest in show history with even more to offer visitors. The show will be held September 12-17, 2016, at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Registration will open on February 1, 2016.
Early results on participating exhibitors and exhibitor floor square footage contracted for IMTS 2016 are both ahead of the IMTS 2014 pace at 1,382 exhibitors and 1.256 million net square feet (22% increase and 8% increase, respectively).
“After the largest IMTS in more than a decade in 2014, the 2016 show is building to be even stronger. It will expand to five halls of McCormick Place with the addition of Hall C in the North Building. It is very exciting to see the continued interest and real growth in manufacturing in the USA,” said Peter R. Eelman, vice president – Exhibitions & Communications at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which produces and owns IMTS. “The show is expecting more than 100,000 visitors from 112 countries who will come to gather ideas and see new technologies in action. IMTS is the place where innovation thrives.

Next-Generation Robotics & Automation: Automotive Manufacturing Europe 2016 takes place November 29-30, 2016 at the Vox Conference Centre, Birmingham, UK. It is the only robotics event to address robotic innovation for individual automotive manufacturing processes: body shop, paint shop and final assembly.
Automotive manufacturers across Europe understand that the next-generation of robotics and automation technologies is a revolutionary opportunity to upgrade automotive manufacturing across productivity, quality, safety and cost metrics. However, questions remain as to how effective implementation can be achieved without impacting throughput, and many across recent research are still unaware of the full capabilities of these cutting-edge machines.
Next-Generation Robotics & Automation: Automotive Manufacturing Europe 2016 unites European automotive manufacturers and sub-contractors with pioneering robotics, tooling and automation providers to understand the evolution of the latest technology, and grapple with the techniques and considerations that must be addressed to maximise their value within specific manufacturing contexts.
