Industrial Automation North America at IMTS is well on its way to becoming North America's leading trade show for process, factory and building automation (click here for the product categories). Industrial Automation North America has already distinguished itself as the place with the automation industry's most innovative solutions and technologies. The fact that it's co-located with IMTS, North America's leading manufacturing technology trade show, only provides more incentive to get involved.

Industrial Automation North America, MDA NA and IMTS create the most comprehensive manufacturing technology trade show in the Western Hemisphere -- you will surely find technologies and solutions to meet your manufacturing needs. Network with key industry players and learn from industry experts through the Industrial Automation North America conferences and training workshops.

In 2016, Motion Drive Automation North America will be launched at IMTS.  This event further expands the range of technologies and solutions presented at IMTS by bringing the power transmission, motion control and fluid technology sectors together
