Attending IMTS 2016 Conferences is a smart educational move.

This year’s program focuses on continuous improvement in manufacturing operations – from improving productivity, part quality, and overall equipment effectiveness, to developing a stable, competent workforce. With this variety of topics and tracks, IMTS 2016 Conferences can help you focus on finding solutions to the manufacturing challenges you may face as well as growing your knowledge in this fast-changing industry.

When you register to attend the IMTS 2016 Conferences you are providing yourself the opportunity to network and expand your knowledge through interactions with peers and experts throughout this 4-day conference, which runs concurrently with IMTS 2016 – one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world. Opportunities abound for you to learn about the challenges others have faced and overcome, and you may even relate to some of those scenarios within your operations. Engagement with those who have struggled with similar situations is an ideal way to educate yourself for developing a plan for improvement.

Now that you have the IMTS 2016 Conference Guide in hand, you’ll find it is your path to the making improvements where they are needed. On the following pages are details of each days’ schedule – separated into five tracks with specific focuses for each one, and more about the presenters and the companies they represent.
