What a show! FABTECH 2013 set records in terms of numbers of attendees and exhibitors as well as floor space. 40,667 attendees visited 1,573 exhibitors at product displays spread across 650,000 square feet of exhibits at McCormick Place. Attendees also benefited from the FABTECH educational conference held simultaneously with the four-day expo that included an unprecedented number of expert-led sessions on some of the hottest topics in manufacturing.
While it’s great that we broke so many records, we are even happier to hear such positive feedback from attendees and exhibitors. Attendees were impressed with the record size and scope of the show and the number of new products and innovative technologies on display. Exhibitors were enthusiastic and report that sales activity was brisk and that leads were plentiful.
We’ll have more to report soon. More good news: FABTECH 2013 sets the tone for the upcoming year of international programming by the FABTECH Partners. FABTECH Canada, will take place March 18-20, 2014 at the Toronto Congress Centre. On April 10-12, the inaugural FABTECH India, co-located with the India Institute of Welding’s Weld India Exhibition, will take place in New Delhi. On May 6-8, 2014, FABTECH Mexico will take place at the Centro Banamex in Mexico City.
Thank you to all our great attendees and exhibitors!
