Make more of your IMTS experience by finding connections and customers through unique sponsorship opportunities.
Jul 05, 2022

You go to IMTS for the incredible technology, the great camaraderie, and the awe-inspiring atmosphere. But ultimately, you go for the customers. Make more of your IMTS experience by finding more connections and more customers through unique sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsorship packages give you the opportunity to:

Build name recognition – IMTS is huge. Stand out from the crowd by making sure participants see your company name frequently – and in strategic areas. Every impression counts!

Target a specific audience – Focus on underserved or underrepresented markets and let them know that your company is ready to do business.

Support a worthy cause – From funding trade schools to bolstering women in manufacturing, you can promote important work while advertising your products and services.

Tap into new opportunities – Sponsorship packages are specifically designed to give exhibitors access to diverse businesses and individuals. Find partners, employees, and customers you would never meet otherwise.

IMTS 2022 will feature three distinct sponsorship opportunities.
