March 21, 2018
IMTS 2018 – The International Manufacturing Technology Show continues to increase its appeal to international and domestic visitors by dedicating 130,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space and display to Hannover Messe USA, the newly branded North American industrial technology co-located trade show. Hannover Messe USA is organized and managed by Hannover Fairs USA (HFUSA), the U.S. subsidiary of Deutsche Messe, organizer of Hannover Messe. IMTS 2018, the premier and longest running manufacturing technology show in the Americas, will be held September 10 – 15, at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
“Co-locating Hannover Messe USA further diversifies the technologies that visitors can experience at IMTS 2018,” says Peter R. Eelman, vice president – exhibitions and business development at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which produces IMTS. “Hannover Messe USA has increased its footprint by 44 percent and will feature approximately 500 exhibitors in the East Building. IMTS already attracts visitors from more than 110 countries, and co-locating Hannover Messe USA further strengthens our international appeal.”
“Hannover Messe's USA’s trade shows will leverage the power of the Hannover Messe brand by demonstrating the full range of Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions during IMTS 2018,” said Larry Turner, president and CEO of HFUSA. In addition, the show emphasizes technologies associated with predictive maintenance, more efficient use of raw materials, faster time to market and other trends in industrial manufacturing.
“We also expect to extend the overall scope and global nature of the co-located shows this year by highlighting more exhibitors from around the world in our international pavilions, including China, Germany, Italy, Korea and Taiwan,” adds Turner.
