McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. The International Manufacturing Technology Show is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and 114,147 registrants. This year's show is expected to be one of the largest IMTS events at 1.3 million net square feet with a full line up of exhibitors showcasing the latest technology. After you register, also consider reserving your hotel room through Connections Housing, the only IMTS housing provider. Don't wait to book, as rooms in the downtown area sell out months before the show. Motion, Drive & Automation North America will return as a co-located event with IMTS 2016 and will present the latest technologies and solutions in power transmission, motion control and fluid technology.
