AMT owns and manages IMTS—The International Manufacturing Technology Show, which is the premier manufacturing technology event in North America.
“Now going into its fourth edition, The MFG Meeting has become a must-attend event for leadership throughout the manufacturing industry. It’s where the industry comes together to get a pulse on what’s happening and to find the information that can help grow and improve their businesses. But more importantly, MFG is a chance to strengthen networking relationships with industry peers, as well as to establish new ones. Nobody understands this business better than we do, and it’s only through this kind of collaboration that we can effectively pull together and move forward.”
