MetalForming Delivers FABTECH

November 11-13, 2014

Georgia World Congress Center
Atlanta, GA

North America's largest metalforming, fabricating, welding and finishing event lands in Atlanta, November 11-13, at the beautiful Georgia World Congress Center. More than 1400 exhibitors occupying in excess of 500,000 sq. ft. of space will welcome some 27,000 attendees.

The ATL was once referred to as the "Chicago of the South," for its "new men, new industries, new buildings and new spirit." That reference will ring true in November when the future of the metalforming industry is on display at FABTECH 2014.
