Amerimold Hosts Successful 2021 Event Amid Surge Of Mold Manufacturing Production Rates Across The Country
The Amerimold Expo, held September 21st-23rd at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, announced its official attendance numbers and participant demographics today. Despite the ongoing pandemic, these numbers indicate only a small dip from the previous live Amerimold, demonstrating confidence in the strong mold manufacturing and plastics markets. This year, Amerimold we co-located with two industry-focused conferences: the Extrusion Conference and the Molding Conference. Both groups of attendees had complete access to the Amerimold show floor.
Total Registration (Amerimold, Extrusion, and Molding Conferences): 2,325
Amerimold Exhibiting Companies: 144
Allison Kline Miller, Chief Events Officer for Gardner Business Media, stated, “Amerimold is a cornerstone of the Gardner Business Media lineup of events, so having such a strong showing in a difficult year is a massive success for the mold manufacturing industry. We were thrilled to have so many mold manufacturing community members in attendance, ready to do the business of moldmaking directly on our show floor.”
“More than 2,300 attendees attended Amerimold 2021 and our co-located conferences over the course of our first three-day schedule in the show’s history. We saw mold manufacturing professionals from across the country join us to observe our free series of Tech Talks, observe live machine demonstrations on the show floor, and attend many of the half-dozen networking events on the show floor and around the venues of Rosemont. We heard amazing feedback all week from our exhibitors about the quality of their leads and the powerful conversations they had on our show floor. That’s the kind of thing you love to hear about your events,” said Miller.
“First and foremost, Amerimold gives a phenomenal opportunity to increase brand awareness and gain traction within our industry, said Colby Coombs, CFO of Westminster Tool. “During the 2021 show, we had outstanding foot traffic due to the Leadtime Leader award and the announcement of our partnership with our 3D printing technology partner, Mantle. On top of leads, Amerimold allowed me to reconnect with suppliers and networking opportunities to strengthen our supply chain and find strategic partners in the mold building industry.”
Paul Britton, President of International Mold Steel, said, “We had close to 50 quality people stop by our booth. A few of these should turn into good customers. That is the reason for us being at Amerimold. Success in business depends largely on relationship building. Meeting new people, visiting with customers you have not seen in a while. These are the 2 biggest factors for building future success as a business.”
In lieu of a stand-alone Amerimold event next year, Amerimold will be throwing its weight behind the Moldmaking Pavilion at the inaugural Plastics Technology Expo, taking place on March 29th-31st in Rosemont, IL. This event, designed to bring the entire plastics supply chain under one roof, will feature a unique pavilion dedicated to connecting mold buyers and relevant technology providers. Product, equipment and service suppliers exhibit at Amerimold to identify the true needs of the mold manufacturing marketplace and then develop solutions to meet those specific requirements. They also show up to foster lifelong relationships developed at this event over the years. The MoldMaking Pavilion at PTPXO is poised to do the same.
Amerimold is North America’s premier event for mold manufacturing. Presented by Gardner Business Media, in partnership with MoldMaking Technology, Plastics Technology and Modern Machine Shop, amerimold connects global and domestic technology leaders involved in all aspects of mold manufacturing.
