The Deltaplex - Grand Rapids MI 2016

Thanks to everyone who played a part in the 2016 AME show.  We had over 1000 registered attendees and 740 attended and we generated over 1200 leads for this this local one day show!

The Advanced Manufacturing Expo was a huge success that came as a complete surprise. Having done over 90 Rockwell Automation On The Move and many Automation Fair events, I was not sure what to expect….. 100% total class, well planned and well executed event. The business men and women of Grand Rapids are top shelf… Count us in for next year.”
