GEAR EXPO 2015
2015 Fall Technical Meeting (FTM) and Presentations
Presented by: American Gear Manufacturers Association
Sunday, October 18 — Tuesday, October 22
8:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m.
Anyone even remotely involved with the gear industry knows that Gear Expo is B-I-G. Every two years, it is an invaluable opportunity for buyers, sellers and just-lookers to come together and glorify gearing.
But one can’t help wondering how many exhibitors and attendees even think about the two days that precede the show, i.e. — the Fall Technical Meeting. It must be important, because they convene this gathering every year — not every other year. And important it surely is — today more than ever. With the ongoing dearth of new and qualified workers for the gear industry, educating and re-educating the people we do have in our corner of the work world is paramount. With that in mind, let’s see what’s on offer for the 2015 Annual Fall Technical Meeting. (Go to www.gearexpo.com/ Detroit for course pricing.)
