2018 Is a Big Year of Events and Opportunities for Moldmakers
A positive projection in growth and spending from Gardner Intelligence is timed with NPE, Amerimold and IMTS, MMT’s 20th anniversary milestone and the 15th anniversary of MMT’s annual Leadtime Leader Awards competition.
Happy New Year! Gardner Intelligence reports growth opportunities for mold builders this year and beyond and even notes specific future spending plans on technology (see the related feature, 2018: Long-Term Opportunities Abound). This positive projection in growth and spending is coincidentally timed with what I call the trifecta of trade shows: NPE, Amerimold and IMTS.
These upcoming events will help make 2018 a big year for moldmaking, in terms of big opportunities to learn and grow. With NPE taking over Orlando in May, Amerimold moving into Detroit in June and IMTS occupying Chicago in September, both the metalworking and plastics side of mold building will have the spotlight. What a perfect and powerful opportunity to research equipment and processes and to learn about new business prospects. And, MMT will be right there with you and for you, as we cover each event in print, online and live.
MMT will celebrate its 20th anniversary! It was exciting when we launched the magazine 20 years ago, and it is still an exciting time for the industry. We are honored to celebrate this milestone with you, and we look forward to many more years.
