WARNING: Manufacturing Technology Today

A publication called Manufacturing Technology Today has called exhibitors claiming to be the Show Daily for IMTS. They promise distribution at the show, in the hotels and at the shuttle stops. Please note, this is NOT an IMTS-approved publication, and the company does not have permission to distribute at IMTS shuttle stops, nor have they received permission from IMTS to distribute their publication at hotels. They are misrepresenting their on-site show distribution.

THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL SHOWDAILY for IMTS 2022, and the publishing company, Source Group Publishing, is not an official IMTS Vendor Partner.

When making advertising decisions for IMTS, it's always better to be safe than sorry. Gardner Business Media is the publisher of the official ShowDaily, Directory and Maps for IMTS 2022. These are the only publications distributed at the show.
