Attractions at IMTS 2014
Emerging Technology Center
The Emerging Technology Center (ETC) has become a top destination for attendees at IMTS. Futuristic views of new technology and emerging trends in manufacturing, such as 3D printing and nanotechnology, have been on display at past shows. For IMTS 2014, we take it a step further by showing practical and actual applications of new technologies right on the show floor. You won't believe what we are building using parts manufactured by exhibitors, and you can see it all in the Emerging Technology Center!
Live from the show floor … it's IMTSTV! Three live shows broadcast daily, as well as the briefing editions that are seen at your hotel and on the IMTS shuttle bus, or online from 6 am -10 am. IMTSTV is also broadcast in the blogging areas and other locations throughout McCormick Place. Watch the latest industry news now on IMTS.com/video!
The IMTSTV crew can be seen live in action at the IMTSTV Studio, located by the main entrance of McCormick Square.
Smartforce Student Summit
The Smartforce Student Summit is a free, week-long event at IMTS and is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students, educators, school administrators and guidance counselors to gain a first-hand glimpse into in the world's most cutting-edge technology for the purpose of reinforcing a nationwide increase of STEM education at the secondary and post-secondary level. Learn more about the Smartforce Student Summit.
A trip to the Smartforce Student Summit is a ticket not just to IMTS, the largest manufacturing technology show in North America, but a chance to stimulate technical interest in young people, to eliminate antiquated stereotypes of STEM-related careers, and to bridge the gap between education and industry so that students are given the skills they need to pursue well-paying, highly technical careers that go beyond imagination.
