IMTS 2018 Set to "Crush" Old Records
The 2018 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) is on target to surpass records across numerous categories that date back more than 20 years.
“We’re going to crush the registration numbers from 1998.”
What may seem like a bold prediction from Peter Eelman, Vice President of Exhibitions & Business Development for the Association of Manufacturing Technology, sounded more like a simple fact against the backdrop of impressive metrics revealed during the IMTS media briefing this past Sunday. Eelman highlighted increases in not only the number of visitors—which is on track to surpass 1998’s record of 121,764—but also said that the number of square feet, booths and companies are all breaking records this year.
