Conferences at IMTS

Top Shops Workshop

The Top Shops Workshop is where leading shops of all shapes, sizes and specialties connect at IMTS to celebrate their contribution to the manufacturing community and to learn about the tools and technologies that will help them continue to lead and succeed. What makes the Top Shops Workshop unique is that it is an event “for top shops, by top shops.” It is an opportunity to explore the Top Shops survey metrics - talk them out, ask questions. It’s a chance to network with other shops who are trying to advance their own organizations forward.

Top Shops connects leaders at best-in-class machining businesses. Attend to learn best practices and processes to impact every aspect of your business – from machining technology to shopfloor practices; sales and marketing to human resources.

Top Shops will feature other manufacturing professionals who have shared their tips, tools and technologies in an effort to not just benchmark their own business, but to provide other manufacturing enterprises information that can help them improve their operation.

Topics covered included:

  • Advanced Machining Technology
