Smartforce Student Summit

September 8, 2014 @ 9:00 am - September 13, 2014 @ 5:00 pm


IMTS has a longstanding tradition of gathering middle school, high school and college students, educators, administrators and parent chaperones to experience advanced manufacturing technology and have direct contact with the industry professionals whose minds move manufacturing forward. It’s the next generation Smartforce entering the manufacturing technology industry who will keep the U.S. in its global manufacturing leadership position.

During IMTS 2012, more than 9,300 students and educators from 17 states attended the student summit before touring IMTS. For 2014 we plan to welcome even more of the student community to the Smartforce Student Summit the week of Sept. 8-13 from 9 am – 5 pm.
