Welcome to the 31st IMTS show. To make the most of your trip and to make sure you optimize your time while walking 1.3 million net square feet of exhibit space, be sure to take advantage of “MyShow Planner” sponsored by UPS. This free Web-based app can be used from your mobile device, laptop or desktop computer to identify a targeted list of exhibitors that can be consolidated by location for efficient time use. The planner will even produce a schedule tailored to your needs, and it can be accessed via an onsite kiosk where printing will be available. To sign up for the planner, visit: IMTS.com/planner.

MyShow Planner provides a small taste of what UPS does on a far bigger scale with ORION – On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation. ORION, which will be fully deployed to nearly all of UPS’s 55,000 North American routes in 2017, taps expansive fleet telematics and advanced algorithms to gather and calculate countless amounts of data to provide UPS drivers with optimized routes. Ever wonder how UPS drivers avoid making left turns? UPS’s sophisticated technology makes it simple and provides personalized services that saves customers money while dramatically reducing gas usage and carbon dioxide emissions.
