A two-day event for the plastic injection mold manufacturing industry addresses business development and best practices. amerimold 2017 connects moldmakers, molders, OEMs and rapid product development professionals representing all aspects of a product’s creation. The show will take place June 14 and 15 at the Donald E. Stephens Center in Rosemont, Illinois, just outside Chicago.

Two educational additions – Tech Talks and In-Booth Demos – will debut this year and will be complimentary for all show floor registrants. Tech Talks will feature a panel or presentation highlighting technical information about a specific topic. Each of these sessions will begin at the top of the hour and will cover several subjects. Additionally, all show floor registrants will have the opportunity to view machines in action as part of the in-booth demos segment.

Various networking events connect mold builders and mold buyers during the event. This year’s Casino Night-themed networking reception allows attendees and exhibitors the opportunity to get to know each other in a relaxed and interactive environment. The winner of the Leadtime Leader Award will be announced prior to the networking event.
