In addition to the intelligence you’ll gather on the IMTS 1.4 million-square-foot exhibition floor, you can choose from an array of conference sessions all designed to provide you with tangible insights that you can take back and implement in your operations.

There are several educational sessions during the week of IMTS. The largest and longest-running of these is The IMTS Conference – running from Monday, September 10 through Thursday, September 13, 2018 – jointly produced by AMT and GIE Media. Designed as a 4-day technical deep dive, offering both a 4-day and 1-day pass, The IMTS Conference features more than 70 sessions, attended by over 1,500 IMTS visitors. All sessions in The IMTS Conference are presented by subject matter experts from within the IMTS exhibitor community.

Abstracts submitted by interested speakers are reviewed by editors at several of GIE Media’s manufacturing publications to ensure that they are timely, relevant and are not overt commercial pitches for a particular product. While the technical subjects that are presented will cover a range of issues, they fall into these main categories:

Manufacturing Process Innovations

Alternative/Additive Manufacturing

Plant Operations


Systems Integration/Industry 4.0/IIoT
