AMT - The Association For Manufacturing Technology announced a major new relationship with UPS. The world’s largest transportation company, UPS will now be recognized as an official “Global Logistics Provider to IMTS and AMT.” AMT members and exhibitors at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) will benefit by harnessing the power of UPS’s infrastructure to enhance manufacturing technology trade around the globe.
“In AMT’s 110-year history, this is our first sponsorship with a global logistics provider,” says Peter Eelman, AMT V.P.– exhibitions and communications. “We are confident UPS will bring great value to AMT members and IMTS stakeholders. Our members, exhibitors and partners will benefit from the range of shipping and logistics solutions UPS offers to manufacturers.”
In recognition of the innovation UPS brings to logistics, the company will be featured in the Emerging Technology Center (ETC) at IMTS 2014. The ETC will also feature Local Motors, who will manufacture its new city vehicle – the Boston Bullet – at the event, as well as interactive kiosks to showcase the new National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI). As plans take shape for IMTS 2014, AMT is thrilled to welcome UPS and its logistical expertise to this preeminent event.
In addition to IMTS, AMT members and IMTS exhibitors will notice increased participation by UPS at all key events.
UPS is also sponsoring the IMTS Exhibitor Workshop being held throughout the U.S. in January 2014. The workshop helps exhibitors prepare for IMTS, allowing them to fully capitalize on the unique opportunities provided by the industry’s largest and longest-running trade show. UPS representatives will be in attendance during these workshops to help educate exhibitors.
