The AMBA Annual Conference held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was the first significant event of 2018 geared solely toward moldmaking.

MoldMaking Technology arrived on the scene at just the right time to address the moldmaking market and to provide moldmakers and their suppliers with the perfect place to share. The MMT team awkwardly stepped into the market, as no one believed it could compete with other established, but more general, magazines. However, suppliers in need of direct communication with moldmakers embraced it. Fueled by suppliers’ need to reach moldmakers and the industry’s desire to share knowledge unique to the molds themselves, MMT flourished.”
