The event will attract more than 25,000 manufacturers to the Las Vegas Convention Center to view 1,100 exhibits, including live equipment demonstrations covering more than 400,000 sq ft of floor space. Simultaneously, the FABTECH educational conference will offer unique insights and expert speakers who will discuss today’s hottest topics in manufacturing.

FABTECH will feature several special events including a panel discussion with Washington, D.C. government relations experts on how the presidential and congressional election results will impact U.S. manufacturing; a special roundtable with five manufacturing CEOs on “The State of the Industry: Manufacturers’ Executive Outlook”; a Workshop on Lean Manufacturing for Managers; and, various new product presentations.

FABTECH has also created some great networking events, including a special Happy Hour on the show floor and a “Cocktails and Comedy” event. Also, everyone is invited to FABTECH’s inaugural RUN4MFG 5K that will be held in the streets of Las Vegas. Runners and sponsors will have the opportunity to donate to four different charitable organizations supporting manufacturing.

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.
