The National Machine Tool Builders' Exposition, the former name of IMTS, was first held September 19-23, 1927, in the Cleveland Auditorium. The show occupied 63,000 sq. ft. and attendance topped 12,000. By 1990 the official name of the show was changed to the International Manufacturing Technology Show to reflect the changing industry and the broader scope of exhibits.
