Company groups gain a broader perspective by gathering ideas from varying viewpoints – engineers, machinists, managers, executives – to shape the future of the technology in their factory,” says Peter R. Eelman, Vice President — Exhibitions & Communications at AMT — The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which produces IMTS.

“Do not wait to book your hotel room,” cautions Eelman. “Because of the size and popularity of IMTS, literally every hotel room in Chicago will be occupied. Even months before the show, you may not find a room downtown,” says Eelman.
