The Windy City is one of Fabtech’s most popular sites, and organizers are expecting large crowds for this month’s visit.

The sheet metal forming event takes place Nov. 9-12 at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention facility. More than 40,000 attendees and 1,500 exhibitors are expected.

Organizers have booked several keynote speakers, manufacturing industry roundtables and over 100 educational sessions on sheet metal products and business development.

“People will come from around the world to hear new perspectives, gain industry exposure and grow their businesses and networks,” said John Catalano, show co-manager. “No matter what manufacturing background our attendees come from, there is something at Fabtech for everyone — the trick is planning for everything the event has to offer.”
