Industry Relevance

FABTECH has modest roots. The trade fair first forms as a regional event held in Cleveland, Ohio back in 1981 and only moved to the much bigger industrial city of Chicago, Illinois two years later after the show gains more traction. Over the years as FABTECH attracted more visitors, sponsors and attention, the event moved to McCormick Place and then begins to alternate between Chicago and Atlanta, Georgia. As it’s open to professional visitors only, FABTECH promotes innovation in all links along the processing line and you’ll find exhibits on brazing and soldering, arc welding, assembly, additive manufacturing, coil processing, cutting, fastening, joining, lasers, lubrication, saws, software, machine controls, stamping, thermal spraying and much more!

Who Are You Going to Meet?

It’s no surprise to discover that FABTECH is heavily populated by companies and specialist from North America given the fair’s roots as a regional event. This tradition has only strengthened and now almost every state in the USA has presentation. Even so, FABTECH is a global event. Other countries that exhibit and visit include China, Japan, Mexico, Germany and many other European countries. Given FABTECH has one of the most comprehensive educational and informational programs in its industries, we see trained specialists who come here for further training along with students who are making their first steps in the industry.
