Material Handling Industry of America and the Automation Technologies Council announced that ProMat and The International Robots, Vision & Motion Control Show will collocate in 2011.

 

Both exhibitions will be held March 21-24, 2011 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. ATC is the umbrella group for Robotic Industries Association, Automated Imaging Association and Motion Control Association.

 

“The decision to collocate ProMat 2011 and the International Robots, Vision & Motion Control Show was made for several reasons,” according to John Nofsinger, Chief Executive Officer for MHIA. “Co-locating the two events will allow manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals unparalleled education and networking opportunities as well as exposure to the largest equipment and technology display of any show of its kind in North America.

 

“In today’s world of needing to be nimble and innovative, the collocation is a home run for participants and attendees of both events.”

 

“Robotics, vision and motion control are important components as companies strive to reach their productivity goals,” said Jeffrey A. Burnstein, President of ATC. “We feel this collocation provides an incredible opportunity for the exhibitors and visitors of each show to meet new prospects and suppliers, see new products and obtain new knowledge.”

 

Show officials said the collocated ProMat 2011 and International Robots, Vision & Motion Control Show will be the largest international event and conference of its kind ever held in the U.S.

 

More than 825 exhibitors are expected to showcase their solutions to tens of thousands of manufacturing, warehousing and distribution professionals from more than 100 countries around the globe.

 

“Over the past several years, ProMat has experienced a steady increase in both quantity and quality attendees and exhibitors delivering more material handling and logistics solutions for the supply chain. The collocation of the International Robots, Vision & Motion Control Show is a natural value-adding fit for both events,” said Nofsinger.

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.
