FABTECH 2018 takes place November 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. More than 1,500 companies will be exhibiting, and more than 35,000 people from around the world are expected to attend.
Since its inception in 1981, FABTECH has grown from a regional trade show into North America’s largest, most authoritative event for the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industry. There are several notable additions to the show this year. One is the new Smart Manufacturing Hub, featuring displays and daily presentations by companies like Acieta, Desktop Metal, Microsoft and Stratasys on advanced manufacturing technologies including automation, IoT, 3D printing and more. An expanded 3D/Additive Manufacturing Pavilion will introduce an Ask the Experts Knowledge Bar featuring small group sessions designed to provide answers to specific 3D/additive manufacturing challenges.
In addition, there will be more than 130 new and returning education sessions, including dedicated tracks focused on developments in 3D/additive manufacturing, automation, cutting and laser, finishing, forming and fabricating, lean, stamping, smart manufacturing and welding fabrication. New sessions include Roadmap to Smart Manufacturing Transformation, Revolutionizing 3D Additive Manufacturing, Next Generation Laser Cutting Technology and Integrated Solutions for Industrial Automation.
FABTECH also has a new marketing and sales track, while expanded management and workforce development tracks cover management concerns such as managing innovation for growth and next generation leadership strategies.
