Top Shops Workshop Coming to IMTS in 2018

Monday, July 2, 2018

Event focuses on peer-to-peer development for job shops

Registration is open for the 2018 Modern Machine Shop Top Shops Workshop at IMTS. The technical program and peer-to-peer discussion deliver practical solutions and business strategies that complement the variety of cutting-edge technologies on-display at IMTS 2018.

Each year, leading job shop professionals rely on Top Shops to connect to the manufacturing community and to learn about the tools and technologies that will help them continue to lead and succeed. In a constantly developing manufacturing landscape, the event helps guide shops’ improvement efforts and find paths to success.

What makes the Top Shops Workshop unique is that it is was created “for top shops, by top shops.” This unique event is designed exclusively for owners, executives and managers at job shops and contract manufacturers, and will deliver insights into improving every aspect of manufacturing operations. The program provides real, actionable insight that can be taken directly back to the shop floor.
