What IMTS Attendees have to Say…

Bob Bechtold, President at HARBEC Inc.
“We saw new technology at IMTS we didn't know existed – it blew us away. It's common to experience that ‘wow' moment once or twice at IMTS. We just never know what we're going to find, but we know if it's worth finding, it will be there.”
Bob Bechtold
President at HARBEC Inc.
“IMTS is experiential. It's the place where I talk with influencers and market leaders. Making connections gives me a stronger network and broader team to execute. That's how highly successful companies operate.”
Callye Keen
Design Manager at Kform
“There's nothing more exciting than getting something new at the shop, so when we see a potential new addition at the show, everyone dreams about the possibilities. Often, we end up purchasing that new technology, and it makes jobs better.”
Julie Hoban
CEO at JTD Enterprises
