WASHINGTON, D.C., July 16, 2007 - The National Association of Manufacturers has joined as Industry Partner with the FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show 2007, which will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 11-14.

The show is North America's largest event dedicated to showcasing a full spectrum of metalforming and fabricating, tube and pipe, and welding equipment and technology.

The show will occupy more than 450,000 square feet. Approximately 900 exhibitors and 25,000 attendees are expected to participate.

"The NAM recognizes the FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show as a growing event that serves a wide spectrum of manufacturing in North America," said John Engler, NAM president and CEO.
