Whether you are an attendee or an exhibitor, now is the time to finalize your IMTS planning. We’ve already received our first, official product release. You won’t want to miss either the show or our August show issue.

What brings this to mind? On March 26, I received the first press release featuring a product that will be on display at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2012, which will run from September 10-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Why, you wonder, would somebody send in a press release so early?
Every other year, our August print issue becomes a catalog of sorts containing new products and technology that will be on display at IMTS, the largest and longest-running manufacturing technology trade show in the United States. The show will feature more than 1,100 exhibitors and attract more than 82,000 buyers and sellers from 116-plus countries. So you can see how important it is for both manufacturers and companies that are considering purchasing new equipment to be there.
And because MMS prints a preview of the products that will be on display, you see how important it is for exhibitors to send me their press releases by no later than June 1.
See you at the show!
