He added, “Combining these two powerful B2B events for industrial technology allows our growing roster of exhibitors to showcase their latest solutions in the United States and Canada on one platform on an annual basis.”

The new IAMD trade show will showcase production, process and energy automation systems, robotics, industrial IT, hardware and services, production technologies and services, transmission and fluid power components and systems, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, plain and rolling bearings, geared motors, linear technology, and sealing technology.

In September 2018, IAMD USA, Surface Technology USA, ComVac USA and Industrial Supply USA will collocate with IMTS 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“During all of our industrial technology events in the United States, as well as the increasing number of industrial trade shows we are organizing in Canada, the new IAMD event will cover the entire factory floor and showcase how it can be integrated into Industry 4.0,” Turner said.
