DAYTON, Ohio--The 2016 Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show (AMTS) is the region’s only advanced manufacturing and technology trade show. From October 12 through 13, manufacturing suppliers, engineers, designers and industry professionals will come from around Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky to exchange ideas, introduce new products and learn about industry trends.
Presented by the The Dayton Region Manufacturers Association (DRMA), AMTS expects to host more than 3,400 manufacturing professionals and 175 exhibitors at the Dayton Convention Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in 11 different educational seminars, with topics including 3D printing applications and materials, simulation apps, Industrial Computed Tomography, HPC based modeling and simulation, and more.
Manufacturing in the United States continues to grow. From March 2010 through April of 2015, the manufacturing industry added more than 850,000 jobs, and the number of companies in the industry has increased for five straight quarters; something that hasn’t happened since the late-1990s. By 2013, manufacturing output from Ohio and Kentucky had surpassed pre-recession rates, and Indiana’s had surpassed theirs by more than $20 billion.
“This event gives regional manufacturing professionals the opportunity to enhance their business,” said Angelia Erbaugh, president of the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association. “For the thousands of executives, engineers, plant managers, purchasers and other professionals who attend AMTS, it provides the chance to strengthen regional partnerships and support each other’s businesses.”
While AMTS has been held at a different location for the past several years, the move of this 2016 show to downtown Dayton and the Dayton Convention Center brings new perks to exhibitors and attendees, such as: a more upscale and updated facility; free, covered parking; more entertainment options within walking distance; and convenient, connected lodging.
