Why Exhibit at AMTS?

FIND OUT MORE! DOWNLOAD THE 2017 POST-SHOW REPORT!2017 Post-Show Report

Hosted right here in Dayton, Ohio, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show is your chance to reach over 3,000 regional prospects that are directly connected to your industry. Where else will you find so many potential customers coming together in one place at one time? In just two days you’ll meet more key buyers than you could in months of cold calling.

We've found that most manufacturers in this region buy locally and many don’t even attend national shows. Most AMTS attendees come from a 3-hour driving radius --drawing from Ohio, Northern Kentucky, Eastern Columbus, Southern Louisville, and Eastern Indiana-- and they're looking for business solutions from right here in Southwest Ohio. So if you’re looking to do business in our region, this is your show. Most importantly, you'll reach the decision makers... Attendees include CEOs, presidents, plant managers, engineers, procurement managers and technicians.

Attendees come from manufacturing companies serving the aerospace, energy, medical, defense, communication, and transportation industries, among others. Here's just a sampling of past attending companies:
