Amerimold Connects Completes Successful First Edition
Amerimold Connects completed its successful first edition, spanning from June 9 through June 19 after adding an impromptu second week of showtime. A second week was added after attendee and exhibitor demand. The show, the first of its kind for the industry, featured a virtual show floor with 38 participating exhibitors, a collection of live and on-demand educational content, and a live Moldmaking Community Forum to allow for networking among exhibitors and attendees.
Amerimold Connects is a remote event experience for the mold manufacturing community. The event, produced by the team that has hosted an annual live Amerimold event since 1999, was organized to provide the mold manufacturing industry a tradeshow experience in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show attracted 1,527 total registrants over its two weeks. During the show’s run, exhibitor showrooms were viewed over 12,000 times by attendees. The show’s live and on-demand educational content drew over 7,200 total views from over 3,400 unique viewers. These numbers indicate an exceptional level of participation from remote attendees over the show’s duration.
Glenn Starkey, President of Progressive Components and an Amerimold Connects exhibitor, says, “Each year Progressive greatly looks forward to Amerimold, so we were happy when we learned the event was being reconfigured to be a virtual event. We found there to be great content in so many presentations, but most importantly, this event helped maintain the interconnectivity of relationships throughout our great industry.”
Amerimold Connects also featured some classic features of the traditional Amerimold experience, including the presentation of the 2020 MoldMaking Technology Leadtime Leader Award to Precise Tooling Solutions and the unveiling of the 2020 Top 10 Reasons To Be A Moldmaker t-shirt. Videos of this ceremony, as well as the other live educational sessions, can still be viewed at www.amerimoldexpo.com.
Currently, the Amerimold team is planning on holding a live Amerimold show on June 23 and 24, 2021, in Rosemont, IL.
