With more than six months until FABTECH opens its doors in November at Chicago’s McCormick Place CCAI’s FINISHING Pavilion is now the largest yet since CCAI became a partner in the event in 2010.
“We are thrilled to have grown so much,” said Anne Goyer, CCAI executive director. “Our growth has been twofold; past exhibitors are taking larger booths, and we are signing up new exhibitors that haven’t been in the FINISHING Pavilion before. It’s exciting because it brings a wide variety of finishing technologies to show-goers. We’ve already sold more space than any past shows, and we expect both our total exhibit space and number of exhibitors to exceed past shows by 15-20%. We are far ahead of previous years at this point in time, making our Pavilion the largest show for industrial finishers in the U.S.”
In addition to the FINISHING Pavilion expansion, the entire FABTECH show will be the largest ever. As some areas of the show floor have already sold out, the North hall has been expanded to add more space. This year’s promotion campaign speaks to the heart of the show and conference: FABTECH gives attendees a 360 view of the most innovative technology & processes. CCAI is happy to have added finishing to bring the event full circle.
For those who haven’t taken booth space yet, there is still some space available in the CCAI FINISHING Pavilion, but at the rate space is selling, it won’t be available for long. Anyone wishing to participate as an exhibitor is encouraged to reserve space now. Exhibitors receive year-long exposure through the show website and industry promotions.
