The ASSEMBLY Show will return October 24-26, live and in person at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. Attendees will have opportunities to evaluate the latest products and equipment, connect with potential business partners, learn the latest process improvement techniques to streamline their operations, and much more. 

Learning Opportunities

Pre-event webinars discussed concepts such as lean manufacturing and tips for dealing with disruptions in the supply chain. At the event, attendees can choose to attend workshops in order to learn about emerging assembly trends and technologies. For example, the Fastening & Joining: New & Alternative Methods workshop will include a session focused on “Adhesives for Lightweighting.”

The keynote presentation on Wednesday morning will be given by Sudhanshu Gaur, vice president of R&D for Hitachi America and chief architect for Smart Manufacturing at Hitachi Astemo, an automotive technology company formed this year with the merger of four Honda and Hitachi Tier One companies. Gaur will speak on the topic of “Smart Manufacturing–Today and Tomorrow,” including keys and stumbling blocks to the successful implementation of smart manufacturing strategies, as well as the road ahead for different layers of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).


Exhibit Floor

With nearly 215 exhibitors, The ASSEMBLY Show will provide attendees the opportunity to explore the latest equipment and technologies for assembly operations. In addition, the event offers several guided exhibit tours that will be focused on specific topics and led by ASSEMBLY editors.

“We are so excited to have this show live and in person this year,” says John Sprovieri, editor-in-chief of ASSEMBLY magazine. “There’s nothing like seeing technology in person, holding it in your hand, and seeing how it works to really get an idea of what it’s all about.”
