The 51st annual National Plant Engineering MRO & Management Show & Conference is geared to help engineering professionals explore the future of industry.

As part of National Manufacturing Week (NMW), the Show draws more than 50,000 attendees, who will navigate their way through 165,000 sq ft of exhibit space. Other shows that will be running concurrently are National Industrial Automation, National Industrial Enterprise IT, and National Design Engineering. All attendees can cross over from one show to another to get the most out of their visit to NMW.

This year, the Show offers specialty pavilions for easy product sourcing. The pavilions offer products and services in a variety of areas: Buildings & Grounds, Energy Management & Power, Lighting, Maintenance Software, Safety/Health/Environmental, Material Handling & Logistics, and Tools. The new Quality Hall showcases quality assurance and product reliability technologies.

NMW's world-class conference program is a "How-To-Succeed Guide for the Changing Manufacturing World." Eight cross-functional tracks represent the most critical areas of manufacturing. For a listing of conferences, visit the National Manufacturing Week web site at www.manufacturingweek.com.

Several special events add to the excitement at NMW. Learn more about supply chain management at Monday's keynote speech by Dow Bauknight of Andersen Consulting. Find productivity solutions at the Global Manufacturing Solutions Theater, become an expert on distribution at Tuesday's Industrial Distribution Day, and explore the NASA Solutions Center to see product development demos and many new industrial solutions and processes.

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.
