May 30, 2024

To make a long manufacturing story short, we asked industry leaders to summarize manufacturing technology in just one word in our new series “The World According To…” presented by IMTS+.

The words of these visionaries – speed, excitement, continuous, change, promising, optimistic, digital transformation, technology and training, integrity, opportunity, and disruption – shine an optimistic light on the future of manufacturing. With a combined experience exceeding half a millennium, these leaders represent a who’s who of the manufacturing technology world.

Our goal with ‘The World According To…’ is to capture insight from the people guiding our industry as we head into IMTS 2024,” says Peter Eelman, chief experience officer at AMT. “These leaders have an innate understanding of how technology, trends, and the world’s macro issues converge to shape our lives. Viewers will learn that the steady hand of leadership produces a compelling sense of untapped opportunities. The world is moving at supersonic speeds, and these leaders show us how they stay ahead of the curve.”
