The 2010 FABtech International & AWS Welding Show
will bring together a new array of products, services, and technical experts like never before. As North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, tube and pipe and welding trade show, Fabtech is continually growing with the addition of the METALFORM pavilion, displaying innovations in stamping technology. By combining shows, the industry will have an estimated 25,000 show attendees, buyers, and exhibitors at the convention, from November 2-4, 2010. The first official combined exhibition was 2009, in Chicago, but the recently formed partners have agreed to add this new show element at the 2010 FABTECH International Show, coordinating the calendar process.
The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) is a commercial trade association representing the $90 billion dollar metalforming industry in North America. The PMA www.pma.org
