Full House: IMTS 2022 to Occupy All Buildings of McCormick Place

Written by Chuck Schroeder, owner of Insight Marketing, LLC and Kathy K Webster

When are trade shows coming back? Now! On June 11, the City of Chicago officially and fully reopened with no capacity limits for bars, restaurants, gyms, or other large venues and no social distancing requirements. McCormick Place announced that it will resume holding conferences, and that includes the venue’s biggest event: IMTS 2022, which runs from Sept. 12-17, 2022. IMTS recently unveiled the show floor plan, and the news is good.

“IMTS 2022 will once again occupy all four buildings and all levels of the McCormick Place campus, as well as continue co-locating with the HANNOVER MESSE USA show in the East Building,” says Peter R. Eelman, Vice President & CXO at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which owns and produces IMTS. “The demand for in-person events is starting to surge. We credit this enthusiasm to our ability to remain digitally connected with the manufacturing technology community throughout the pandemic with such online platforms as IMTS spark and the IMTS Network.”

You can see the biggest names, explore even the smallest of innovators, and begin to connect with them now in the IMTS Directory. You can also broaden your industry knowledge by choosing from dozens of online programs about technology trends, interviews with industry experts, and even digital product demos.

Worldwide Streaming

IMTS 2022 is North America’s largest manufacturing technology event and attracted more than 129,000 registrants in 2018.

Because of the show’s economic impact, the owner of McCormick Place, the Metropolitan Pier Exposition Authority, invited AMT to participate in a press conference announcing the re-opening of the venue. Speaking from the new studio at the Arie Crown Theatre, which will allow virtual connections and worldwide streaming so conventions can have a hybrid option, Eelman noted that the pandemic taught businesses about the benefits of digital connections. “We learned that hybrid capabilities can enhance the potential of your show,” he said. “We broadcast live from IMTS and we have for the last 14 years, so this takes it to another level. We are excited to make use of this great studio at IMTS 2022 to extend our reach to a broader audience.” Those newer audiences include digital technology companies looking to apply their innovations, CTOs, CIOs, cyber-security and additive manufacturing companies and venture capital providers.”

The Show

To get a feel for the vastness of the IMTS event, watch Eelman as he walks-through McCormick Place in the newest episode of The Show: A Digital Series devoted to upcoming events and information related to the manufacturing technology community that airs on the IMTS social media channels.

IMTS 2022 will once again occupy all four buildings and all levels of the McCormick Place campus. The floor plan is available on imts.com.
