IMTS 2016 is right around the corner: Sept. 12-17 in Chicago.

Every two years, the metalworking industry gathers in Chicago for North America’s biggest ta-do. I’ve attended IMTS uninterrupted since 1980. For me, it has become as much a reunion with longtime friends and colleagues as it is technology testimony.  It’s really both. My career is measured by IMTS. It is how I mark time.

With each edition, AMT - The Association for Manufacturing Technology, the show’s sponsor, comes up with new ways to capture attendees' attention and help them become better informed about the manufacturing world we inhabit. In my many years of attending this event, one thing stands out huge: manufacturing is not stagnant. It is ever-changing and evolving, which demands staying on top of technology.

I’ve been told by my many mentors that showing up is 80 percent of the work we do. I believe this is true and my recommendation to each of you is to show up at McCormick Place in September. It’s as good as we get, and the take away is well worth the trip. Click here to learn more.
