LAS VEGAS, NV-More than 1,100 manufacturers and 25,000 attendees will converge at the Las Vegas Convention Center for FABTECH 2012 on November 12-14. The three-day event is a convenient to source the best products and services for metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing. More than 400,000 net square feet of floor space will be dedicated to live equipment demonstrations, offering visitors the unique opportunity to see, touch and compare products side-by-side and find cost-saving solutions. Simultaneously, the FABTECH educational conference will offer insights and expert speakers who will discuss today’s topics in manufacturing.

They also join a network of other attendees that fosters knowledge and contacts needed to stay current with industry developments in the year to come.”
