-An Event You Don't Want to Miss!

Apr 19, 2017

FABTECH brings live product demonstrations, expert education programs, and unlimited networking opportunities to businesses that seek a competitive edge. FABTECH has exhibits of the latest technologies and innovations in equipment, products and services for people to experience first hand. Automation is quickly advancing, so bringing the latest and greatest to FABTECH provides the opportunities for current manufacturer's to upgrade their arc welding, assembly, cutting, etc. applications.


In Novem­ber, the largest met­al form­ing, fab­ri­cat­ing, weld­ing, and fin­ish­ing event will head to McCormick Place in Chica­go, IL. The FABTECH event is expect­ed to cov­er more than 750,000 net square feet and is expect­ing more than 50,000 atten­dees and 1,700 exhibit­ing com­pa­nies. It is the place to broad­en per­spec­tives, view live prod­uct demon­stra­tions, attend expert edu­ca­tion pro­grams, and have access to unlim­it­ed net­work­ing opportunities. 

It all began in 1981 as a region­al trade show serv­ing a few hun­dred attend­ing com­pa­nies. Slow­ly, it expand­ed to North America’s most author­i­ta­tive event for met­al form­ing, fab­ri­cat­ing, weld­ing and fin­ish­ing. It now includes the AWS Weld­ing Show, the MET­AL­FORM trade show, and the Chem­i­cal Coaters Association. 

FABTECH serves the small­est job shops seek­ing a com­pet­i­tive edge to high lev­el com­pa­ny exec­u­tives, hop­ing to improve busi­ness­es of all sizes. The great event will exhib­it the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and inno­va­tions in equip­ment, prod­ucts and ser­vices, and exten­sive indus­try tar­get­ed edu­ca­tion. There are hun­dreds of new prod­ucts intro­duced each year on the expo­si­tion floor, includ­ing arc weld­ing, assem­bly, bend­ing and form­ing, cut­ting, paint and pow­der coat­ing, mate­r­i­al han­dling, and resis­tance weld­ing.

The mis­sion of FABTECH is to bring togeth­er sell­ers and buy­ers at a venue to help facil­i­tate busi­ness rela­tion­ships, net­work­ing, edu­cat­ing, and the buy­ing process. It is a trade show you don’t want to miss as the guests will be intro­duced to world-class sup­pli­ers, have the lat­est indus­try prod­ucts and devel­op­ments for view­ing, and help guests dis­cov­er new solu­tions and tools that will help increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and profits.

Each year vis­i­tors can attend the cut­ting edge edu­ca­tion­al ses­sions, infor­ma­tive keynote speech­es, and oth­er spe­cial events. The edu­ca­tion­al ses­sions are two hours in length and offer prac­ti­cal knowl­edge that can imme­di­ate­ly be used. They range from a vari­ety of top­ics to include cut­ting, laser, fin­ish­ing, form­ing and fab­ri­cat­ing, man­age­ment, job shop solu­tions, etc. are co-spon­sored by the Fab­ri­ca­tors & Man­u­fac­tur­ers Asso­ci­a­tion, Int’l (FMA), SME (for­mer­ly known as Soci­ety of Man­u­fac­tur­ing Engi­neers), Pre­ci­sion Met­al­form­ing Asso­ci­a­tion (PMA), Amer­i­can Weld­ing Soci­ety (AWS), and Chem­i­cal Coaters Asso­ci­a­tion Inter­na­tion­al (CCAI). Addi­tion­al­ly, the Amer­i­can Weld­ing Soci­ety (AWS) pro­vides a large weld­ing edu­ca­tion­al line­up. This is led by the industry’s top pro­fes­sion­als and focus­es on best prac­tices and new com­mer­cial devel­op­ments in weld­ing and ther­mal spray.
