An Internet Show For SHOPS
Modern Machine Shop has been around for quite a spell. We've been serving the metalworking industries since 1928, to be exact. And in that time, MMS has—to say the least—experienced a few milestones.
About the time you're reading this, MMS is experiencing yet another watershed moment that we're awfully proud of: our 5th year online. That's right, folks—5 whole years. October 1995.
That's a long time, in Internet years.
But the question arises, "How can we best commemorate this newest milestone, while maintaining the consistency of MMS' 5-year-old, shop-focused Web message?"
Our answer: e-Strategies@Work, a conference and exhibition focusing on the Internet and its influence and effectiveness on the metalworking shop.
Most Internet shows these days deal with general markets, the sometimes-cryptic "B2B," or other disciplines that either skirt or downright ignore the shop floor and its unique demands of the Internet as a communications and research enabler.
MMS' e-Strategies@Work aims to give shop owners, managers and metalworking professionals exposure to the trends and applications the Internet provides them in a shop floor context.
Speakers and exhibitors will deliver a program rich in machining relevance and devoted to improving your shop's efficiencies and profitability.
The show will be held February 15-16, 2001, at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.

MMS is proud to establish the e-Strategies@Work show for the shop professional. If there are any ideas or thoughts you have that might help make e-Strategies@Work a better show, please drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Job Shop Site Of The Month
Marshall Manufacturing Corporation (Lewisburg, Tennessee) is fundamentally a large, multi-faceted, precision machining shop. You can tell by its capabilities listings and Product Gallery. But the shop's Web site (www.marshallusa.com) goes the extra mile. Marshall has established forums around its core disciplines. The company is nurturing a closed site for clients. The site has sections for buying and selling surplus equipment. The site says the company is "Internet ready." It is. This is a fine example of a shop expanding services to serve its customers.
