More than 2,000 exhibiting companies occupied the McCormick Place complex in Chicago. IMTS is held every even-numbered year in Chicago and attracts more than 114,000 buyers and sellers from over 112 countries. It is organized by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).

“Manufacturing industry professionals from all over the world attend IMTS to see more than 15,000 new machine tools, controls, computers, software, components, systems and processes that can improve their efficiency. They gain valuable ideas and insights from over 2,000 exhibitors from the metalworking industry. They come to look and they come to buy.” -Dr. Nageswara Rao Posinasetti
