Looking Back at the Biggest Show in the West

Feb. 28, 2019
Five shows combined to spotlight technology and trends in the manufacturing industry.

Manufacturing expo shows are an interesting cross-section of the entire industry. From hardware and software to gears, couplings, and materials, they’re veritable cornucopias of technology. At the Anaheim Convention Center in California this month, five shows took over the building to show off what’s possible and what technology engineers are looking for. MD&M, West Pack, ATX, Plastec West, and Design & Manufacturing show combined for an event so large, you had to see for yourself. The following is a small gallery of what I saw and who I met with while at the show.
