IMTSTV Expands, Adds Second Studio

IMTSTV is your resource for everything IMTS. The program brings you what you need to know and what to look out for at this year’s show, such as tips for exploring Chicago, discussion of industry trends, key exhibitors and advances in manufacturing technology. This year, you can find IMTS TV bigger than ever with two studios, the South studio in the S100 lobby, and the newly added North studio in the North Building, lower level.

IMTS TV began in 2004 as daily coverage over the course of the show and expanded to produce year-round coverage of several topics in the manufacturing industry. This year, the IMTSTV crew attended nine industry events and interviewed more than a hundred experts in manufacturing, business and professional development. The program also helped attendees plan their trips with Around Chicago, a segment leading up to the show dedicated to getting attendees acquainted with Chicago and attractions around McCormick Place. Now, the program serves as a major resource for attendees and industry leaders, delivering weekly content through and social media channels.

A new contest this year prompts exhibitors, “Do you want to be on IMTSTV?” All summer, exhibitors demonstrated their excitement about the TV program and took to social media using the hashtag #iwannabeonIMTSTV. Companies posted their messages on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook showing why they want to be featured on IMTSTV. The best entries were selected, the winners were interviewed and the highlights are being broadcasted here at the show. 

IMTSTV started streaming Sunday morning and continues 24/7 until Saturday at 6 p.m. In the North Building, attendees can find IMTSTV filming three of its daily show specials. Start the day at 7 a.m. with IMTS Today featuring daily updates on what to look for on the show floor. At 12 p.m., IMTS Talk discusses special topics in manufacturing and IMTS Tech airs at 4 p.m. as the must-see technology guide to the show. Look for these segments every day airing in many hotels, on the hotel shuttle buses and throughout the show floor.
