FABTECH to expand to India in 2014

Goal is to "take U.S. technology exhibitors right to the Indian market."


The first FABTECH India exposition will be co-located with India’s premier welding exposition, the Indian Institute of Welding’s Weld India, from April 10 to 12, 2014, in New Delhi.


“More and more buyers from India have been coming all the way to FABTECH to see U.S. welding and manufacturing technologies,” said Ray Shook, executive director of the American Welding Society, one of FABTECH’s cosponsors. “Now we can take U.S. technology exhibitors right to the Indian market in an easy, affordable way.”


Metal forming, fabricating and welding companies who want to penetrate the Indian economy can benefit from this new opportunity to meet prospective partners and gain a foothold in the world’s most populous country.


In recent years, the FABTECH exposition brand has expanded from annual shows in the United States to include the annual FABTECH Mexico and the biennial FABTECH Canada. FABTECH India will be presented every three years, and the first is timed to coincide with the 2014 International Congress of the International Institute of Welding.  FABTECH India and Weld India will be held at New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan exhibition complex, where India’s largest trade shows are hosted.


About 250 international exhibitors and 10,000 attendees are projected to exchange challenges and solutions at the exposition. Attendees will represent India’s fast-growing industries, such as energy, refining, infrastructure, and manufacturing.


FABTECH is co-sponsored by five industry-leading associations: the American Welding Society (AWS), the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), thePrecision Metalforming Association (PMA), and the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI).

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
