October 10, 2014 - Deutsche Messe AG has organized Industrial Automation North America in the U.S. since 2012 and launched Motion, Drive & Automation North America (MDA North America) in 2014. The success of these two events underscores the ongoing re-industrialization trend in the U.S. where low labor and energy costs are spurring on industrial production and filling manufacturers’ order books. Following this trend, in 2016 Deutsche Messe will organize three additional events – ComVac North America, Industrial Supply North America and Surface Technology North America – which cover compressed-air and vacuum technology, industrial subcontracting and surface treatment, respectively. These five trade fairs from the HANNOVER MESSE portfolio will be co-located with the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) from September 12-17, 2016 at McCormick Place in Chicago. With more than 2,000 exhibitors and 114,000 trade visitors, IMTS is North America’s leading trade fair for manufacturing technology. “Industrial production is returning to the U.S., bringing with it mechanical and electrical engineering. It was clear at IMTS this year that many industrial companies in the U.S., Canada and Mexico are increasing their investments in machinery and factories. It is therefore an important and correct step for us to enhance the existing MDA North America and Industrial Automation North America with these additional topics,” said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, member of the managing board at Deutsche Messe AG.
