Following the successful launch of two other shows at the International Manufacturing Technology Show, Germany-based Deutsche Messe plans to launch three more shows during IMTS’ 2016 show.
The three new shows include ComVac North America, Industrial Supply North America and Surface Technology North America – which cover compressed-air and vacuum technology, industrial subcontracting and surface treatment, respectively.
The previous two shows launched by Deutsche Messe are Industrial Automation North America in 2012 and Motion, Drive & Automation North America (MDA North America) in 2014.
“Industrial production is returning to the U.S., bringing with it mechanical and electrical engineering,” said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, member of the managing board at Deutsche Messe AG.
He added, “It was clear at IMTS this year that many industrial companies in the U.S., Canada and Mexico are increasing their investments in machinery and factories. It is therefore an important and correct step for us to enhance the existing MDA North America and Industrial Automation North America with these additional topics.”
All five trade shows are part of the HANNOVER MESSE portfolio and will be collocated with the IMTS Sept. 12-17, 2016 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
This year’s IMTS covered more than 1.3 million net square feet of exhibit space and hosted 2,035 exhibiting companies and drew nearly 115,000 attendees.
