ROSEMONT, IL, DECEMBER 3, 2013 - Attendees to The ASSEMBLY Show weighed in and expressed their satisfaction for the assembly only event which took place October 27-29 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Following are a sample of the testimonies taken during the event:

  •  “The ASSEMBLY Show was fantastic. The thing I like best is that it is geared toward assembly. I’m a project manager for assembly and it’s nice to concentrate on things that are just assembly and not all of the other aspects of manufacturing,” said Joseph Acri, Production Manager, Southco, Inc.
  •  “There are a lot of things to learn from and a lot of different types of vendors, industry applications and tools. Through the keynote speakers we were able to gather some good information for us to take back and discuss with our upper management as far as where the industry is moving in regards to the current economic state both globally and locally to the US,” said John Stocks, Manufacturing Engineer, E-Z-GO.
  •  “What I like about The ASSEMBLY Show is that you get a total picture of all of the types of assembly processes out there. This is a very large show with a large number of companies all focusing on the same thing: assembly,” said Dan Karlak, Project Engineer, CNH.


Following the event, BNP Media also announced that the dates for the 2014 event including the successful “Taste of Rosemont” Opening Reception will be Tuesday, October 28 and run through Thursday, October 30. The 2014 event will again take place in Rosemont, IL at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

“We hosted an advisory board meeting with our charter exhibitors and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. One request was to move the show dates to a Tuesday – Thursday date pattern to avoid a weekend move in. The Donald E Stephens Convention Center is able to accommodate these new dates, so we will move the show dates slightly to help our exhibitors save money,” explained Scott Wolters, Director of Trade Shows for BNP Media. “Our philosophy is, and always will be, to listen to our customers and work toward providing an environment that is the most productive and cost effective as possible for all”.
