Press release date: February 4, 2011

Increased automation and demand for floor space fuels date change. DEARBORN, Mich., -FABTECH show management announced a shift in dates for FABTECH 2011. North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event will now open on Monday, November 14 and run through Thursday, November 17 at Chicago's McCormick Place. The show originally was scheduled to begin on Sunday. The change is due to a number of factors, including an increase in exhibitor participation and demand for larger booth spaces. In addition, exhibitors are making plans to display highly automated machinery on the show floor. This type of equipment requires a minimum amount of set-up time and the new dates will provide an additional move-in day.

"We are pleased to hear exhibitors plan to demonstrate more never-before-seen machinery, high-tech equipment and advanced technology at FABTECH 2011," said John Catalano, FABTECH co-show manager. "We feel the date adjustment will better accommodate our exhibitor set-up needs and demonstrates our commitment to ensuring both exhibitors and attendees have the best show experience possible."

The 2011 event is expected to draw 30,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibiting companies covering more than 450,000 net square feet of floor space. Buyers and sellers from around the world will come together to exchange products and services, network with peers, problem solve and discover new products.
