Beckwood recently exhibited at the IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in Chicago, IL. And, while the show is a mainstay of Beckwood marketing efforts, and while it regularly provides a solid stream of interested leads, 2010’s show turned out to be the best on record from the standpoint of booth traffic.
Coming off the ‘recession’ many would have assumed that manufacturing companies struggling to find their way in a brave new world would have held on to the funds required to make the trip to IMTS. But, luckily, we found that just wasn’t the case.
Hopefully, this is an early-indicator of a solid 2011…
