The Manufacturing Technology Community Reconnects @ IMTS 2022

The tech advances were brilliant in their simplicity. Hundreds (possibly thousands) of robot and cobot demonstrations showed small and medium businesses how easy-to-implement automation can ease their labor problems today. The number of machines on show floor with “sold” signs was the highest in recent years.

But the run-away story of IMTS 2022 is us. Wow, were we happy to see each other!

The connectedness of the manufacturing community was the literal showstopper at IMTS 2022, as people couldn't walk for more than a couple minutes without running into old friends. More than 86,000 registrants reconnected with smiles, handshakes, hugs, hearty backslaps and high fives. A quick exchange reminded us that our friends are our best resources for solving problems, discovering new technologies and forging new connections. The collaborations, partnerships and networking opportunities on and off the show floor brought a new energy level to this IMTS, with many visitors remarking the experience reminded them of their first time at the show.

IMTS 2022 demonstrates beyond a doubt that when the manufacturing community comes together, our collective future shines brighter.
