The Manufacturing EXPO, February 14-15, 2012 in Downtown Cleveland

The inaugural Manufacturing EXPO, Putting a Face on Manufacturing, is prepared to change the way manufacturers, design engineers and purchasing agents view production and product selection. On February 14-15, 2012, more than 3,000 industry-related professionals from Canada and the United States are expected to gather at The Galleria in Downtown Cleveland to gain insights and build important relationships the old-fashioned way: through in-person contact.

More than 175 exhibitors will be showing off their know-how at The Manufacturing EXPO, and some of the most established names in manufacturing will be sharing valuable information with attendees. At the same time, this is designed to be an intimate, easily accessible event, one in which manufacturers, design engineers and others experts in the industry can realize first-hand how impressive and vital manufacturing continues to be in North America.

"The Manufacturing EXPO will harken back to the days of the International Expositions," says Mary Kaye Denning, president and founder of The Manufacturing Mart. "Attendees will be able to stroll the aisles and meet with the faces behind some of the world's most impressive products. Likewise, exhibitors will have the opportunity to see up-close what others in the industry are doing. This is a chance for everyone in the manufacturing arena to realize how proud they should be of what they are producing for North America and the world."

Among the exhibitors already signed on for The Manufacturing EXPO is Beverage Machine & Fabricators, a provider of custom metal-working services for the medical, food processing, construction, heavy machinery, steel, energy, military defense and waste disposal industries. Beverage Machine & Fabricators has a 100-year history and is a fourth-generation family business in Cleveland. The company boasts a 35,000-square-foot workshop, a 25-ton lifting capacity and highly skilled craftsmen.

Another exhibitor at The Manufacturing EXPO is Atlantic Tool & Die. This global manufacturer of precision metal stampings, welding and value-added assemblies has facilities in Alabama, Ohio and Texas, as well as in China, Costa Rica and Mexico. Atlantic Tool & Die's international presence illustrates the breadth of manufacturing opportunities available to manufacturers with the know-how to exceed expectations.

In addition to a growing list of exhibitors, The Manufacturing EXPO will lend a voice to industry experts who understand current trends and ongoing challenges in the marketplace:

Mr. Roger Kilmer, Director of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership of the National Institute of Standards & Technology

Ms. Birgit Matthiesen, Special Advisor to the President and CEO, Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters

Mr. Grady Cope, Chairman, National Tooling and Machining Association

Mr. John Kastelic, President, Cleveland Intellectual Property Law Association; VP/Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, Eaton Corp.

The Manufacturing EXPO is being sponsored by Penton Media, along with the City of Cleveland, StudioTh!nk and The Galleria at Erieview.
