Happy New Year to All
Happy New Year, friends, colleagues, family and everyone. Today opens a new chapter in the moldmaking industry. I’m keeping this blog simple and straight-forward, because (hopefully) no one is really working or looking for something more here on New Year’s Day. (Wink and a smile.)
I want to wish everyone good health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year. This comes not only from me, but from everyone at MMT and Gardner Business Media.
Looking ahead, we know we’ll be seeing many of you at some very important industry events during 2018, including the American Mold Builders Association’s Annual Conference, which will be held on February 14-16 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We’ll no doubt see even more of you at NPE2018 The Plastics Show on May 7-11 in Orlando, Florida.
On June 13-14, Amerimold shines! It’s our very own trade show dedicated exclusively to moldmaking in North America. This year Amerimold will be held in Novi, Michigan, at the Suburban Collection Showplace.
Finally, there’s the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), which will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago on September 10-15. These are among the largest events that are of interest to the moldmaking industry, but be sure to check MMT’s events calendar for details on other happenings you won’t want to miss.
It’s going to be a very exciting year and we look forward to experiencing it with you!
