The ICOSPA Congress—Go International in Grand RapidsJune 1, 2008
Over the past 10 years our metalforming company, Trans-Matic, has put forth a lot of effort to gain international exposure. We believe that in today’s world, doing so is essential. I can say from personal experience that the process of gaining international exposure for Trans-Matic has been difficult, expensive and in many instances downright exhausting.
Today it seems that an overseas trip to anywhere can be fraught with problems. Just trying to schedule meetings with the right people can be maddening. Throw in hazardous ground transportation, questionable lodging and strange food and you have a real adventure. For many of us, an adventure is okay when we are vacationing. But when conducting business with our company’s time, money and resources on the line, we tend to think differently.
What if you could attend one event in one place for just a few short days, and what if in that short time you could gain for your company exposure that would otherwise take numerous overseas trips, countless meetings and a lot of money?
Well, such an event is about to occur, and this event is being organized here in the United States by the Precision Metalforming Association.
This fall, PMA will host the ICOSPA 16th International Congress in Grand Rapids, MI, from Sunday evening to Wednesday evening, September 14-17.
