FABTECH 2015, North America’s largest collaboration of technology, equipment and knowledge in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries, welcomed more than 1,700 exhibiting companies and a total of 43,836 attendees from over 90 countries last week at Chicago’s McCormick Place. This, the largest FABTECH to date, had over 730,000 square feet of exhibits, as well as special events and keynote presentations. “This year’s show was incredible,” said Mark Hoper, show co-manager. “It’s difficult to fully express our gratitude to all those who made FABTECH a success – the city of Chicago, our loyal exhibitors and the thousands of attendees that not only made the week special, but who continue to drive and move our industries forward. Between the variety of events and education programs, to our diverse and expansive show floor, attendees walked away with more knowledge, expertise and industry connections than ever before.” The next FABTECH, in Las Vegas, takes place from November 16 to 18, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention center. And FABTECH Canada takes place at the Toronto Congress Centre from March 22 to 24 2016. www.fabtechexpo.com
