ATX Midwest Crucial for Automation & Assembly Industry

Automation is at the core of the U.S. market's rising competitive advantage. American manufacturing is re-shoring and leveraging automation and supply chain innovations to compete globally. Observe automation technology in action and see why ATX Midwest is crucial to keeping pace with changing needs, meeting new customers, and engaging in valuable thought-leadership conversations.

With a reach encompassing the power players in the Midwest region, ATX Midwest provides a sourcing platform for companies in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Iowa. Expecting a predicted 5% increase on average per year for robotic sales between 2013-2015, automation continues to lead the way to increased productivity and reduced costs. Decision makers from 2,701 company facilities conducted 27,666 project development meetings with 415 exhibiting companies during the 2012 co-located event in Chicago.


A new area in ATX Midwest, PackZone, will feature your packaging solutions in an ideal location on the ATX show floor with increased exposure and attendee traffic. Also, the New Advanced Manufacturing Seminars feature shorter modules, allowing attendees to split their day between sessions and show floor activities.

With the return of PLASTEC Midwest & Quality Expo this year, along with the other co-located events, MD&M Chicago and Design & Manufacturing Midwest, expect a larger crossover audience and more potential prospects.
