IMTS is cancelled,
so join us at YouMTS

When we learned IMTS was cancelled, we put our heads together with our industry partners and came up with a way to turn a dilemma into an opportunity. The solution is a new invitation-only event called youMTS. It will take place at Bluco September 17 and 18, in our state-of-the-art Naperville, Illinois facility.

  • 9 Industry leaders in one place
  • Hands-on demos
  • Exclusive learning sessions
  • Attendance is invitation-only
  • 12,500 sq. ft. of socially-distanced space

Health and safety are top priorities at youMTS. We’re taking steps to support a safer environment in our Validation Center and Showroom for your comfort.

Here’s what you need to know:
