Selected recent metalworking and/or automation trade shows.

As the IMTS opens, managers anticipate exhibit space will net out at around 2% bigger than the 2004 event and that attendance will also increase.

In conjunction with the opening of last year's EMO, VDI Nachrichten, the newspaper published by Germany's trade association of manufacturing-oriented companies, put together a comparison of major metalworking expositions around the world. The updated list below is based on that publication.
