Informa Markets Engineering West is partnering with the California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) to showcase manufacturing modernization and innovation in California. Taking place August 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center, the event features established manufacturing show brands Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) WestWestPack, Automation Technology Expo (ATX) WestDesign & Manufacturing (D&M) West, and Plastec West

With total output from manufacturing in California reaching $288 billion per year, manufacturing plays a key role in California's economy. "California’s productivity growth has occurred over the last decade with largely the same amount of manufacturing workers, which shows tremendous efficiency and modernization within the sector," stated Lance Hastings, president of CMTA, in a news release. "The hard work of manufacturing employees and the production innovation of 30,000 manufacturing companies makes California a global leader in our domestic and international supply chain. CMTA is happy to support the Informa Markets Engineering West event, which has become the premier trade show for manufacturing innovation and supply chain networking.”

CMTA's roster of members includes decision-makers, executives, engineers, and more from leading manufacturers such as:

  • Bishop-Wiscarver

  • Gel-Pak

  • Kangaroo Products, Inc.

  • Lumenous Device Technologies, Inc.

  • Merrill's Packaging, Inc.

  • Pacific Transformer Corp.

  • Paymerang

  • Taqtile

"We could not be more excited to announce our partnership with CMTA and reconnect the community for the first time in the state of California since the dawn of the pandemic. We are all working toward the same goal of progressing the modernization and future of the manufacturing sector by bringing quality attendees and exhibitors together, thus facilitating the much-needed in-person connection between manufacturers and suppliers that has not been possible over the past year and a half," added Hayley Haggarty, group event director, Informa Markets Engineering West, in the statement.

As with all Informa events, Informa Markets Engineering's West event will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events worldwide, irrespective of format or location, will follow onsite safety measures called Informa AllSecure. These guidelines will help to ensure you maximize your time with us while feeling confident and safe.
