Mastercam at IMTS 2018 – a Record Success!

Thank you to everyone that stopped by to check out Mastercam 2019 and visit our booths and presentations at IMTS 2018. Thanks also to our customers, Partners, Resellers, and staff for all of their efforts to make this show a huge success.


This was not only Mastercam’s best IMTS, it was the show’s best as well. With 129,415 registrations, IMTS 2018 smashed the previous record of 121,764 set in 1998. With 1,424,232 square feet of exhibiting space, the show was the largest in history. Exhibiting companies grew from 2,407 in 2016 to 2,563.

With such a fantastic turnout, we received a lot of excellent feedback from existing customers and strong interest from attendees looking for the best CAM software for their manufacturing needs. The information these folks provide helps us continually improve Mastercam, so it’s invaluable to staying at the forefront of our industry.

We had steady traffic at both our educational booth in the Smartforce Student Summit and industrial booth, as well as our presentations – including standing room only attendance at Stas Mylek’s presentation of SMART Manufacturing: Empowering Small-to-Medium Sized Companies with Tools to Compete.

Paul Schmitt from PS Stix, Inc. was a huge attraction at our booth in the Smartforce Student Summit. Dubbed “The Professor,” Paul has been making skateboard decks for the majority of the professionals in the industry since 1983. He’s a legend in his community, and his way of giving back is his program CreateAskate where he delivers a kit to schools that allows them to make a skateboard through material science demonstrations. He gave fantastic presentations throughout the week to students and teachers visiting our booth.

We are very appreciative for all these opportunities to learn and network with the manufacturing community at IMTS. Thank you to everyone that attended and everyone working “behind the scenes” to help make IMTS 2018 a record success!
