FABTECH Announces New Event Dates and Locations for 2024 and 2026March 21, 2023
The FABTECH event partners have announced new event dates and locations for FABTECH in 2024 and 2026. FABTECH, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event, will run October 15-17, 2024, in Orlando, FL, at the Orange County Convention Center, and October 21-23, 2026, in Las Vegas, NV, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The decision to relocate FABTECH to Orlando in 2024 was made after careful deliberation by FABTECH show management. FABTECH was originally scheduled for Las Vegas in November 2024; however, Las Vegas is slated to host the Formula 1 Grand Prix Race during the same timeframe, making the city less than optimal to host FABTECH in 2024.
“We are pleased to have secured dates and space in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando,” says John Catalano, SME senior director, events and strategic partnerships, FABTECH. “Orlando can accommodate FABTECH’s size and scope and has excellent facilities including a modern convention center with experience hosting large manufacturing tradeshows, numerous hotels within walking distance, and a nearby airport easily accessible for U.S. and international travelers.”
The changes in location deviate from FABTECH’s regular rotation of Chicago, Las Vegas and Atlanta. However, according to the event partners, these changes will ensure a better overall experience for attendees, exhibitors and all event stakeholders.
