Registration is now open for EASTEC, the largest manufacturing exposition and conference in the Northeast, according to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).
“Demand has been building for two years and, judging by the quality of exhibitors applying for space, EASTEC is definitely your best option for keeping operations current with the latest technologies and management strategies,” said Kim Farrugia, SME senior show manager.
More than 10,000 manufacturing professionals are expected to attend the event, which alternated years with Mfg4 — Manufacturing for the Future, in 2012. EASTEC features resource centers, keynote speakers, panels and exhibits on growth industries including aerospace, defense, medical, automotive, commerical machinery, electronics, fabricating and plastics. Nearly 500 exhibitors are expected at the 2013 event, including industry leaders Brooks Associates, Compumachine Inc., Delcam, FANUC FA America, FARO Technologies, Mitsubishi and Pratt & Whitney. Attendee registration for the exposition is now open.
New features for 2013 include a panel discussion on workforce development the first day of the event, competitive student manufacturing event for regional high schools, new networking opportunities and area plant tours.
