The benefits of attending a regional AmCon show are significant. The South Florida event will be held at Broward County Convention Center - Hall D, on September 23 - 24, 2008.  According to Kati Olson, President, "After a highly successful show in 2007, AmCon is returning to Fort Lauderdale to help contract manufacturers and job shops tap into the thriving high-tech manufacturing market in South Florida."


Besides aerospace and telecommunications OEMs, Florida is also home to a growing number of medical manufacturing companies. In addition to major medical companies such as Cordis, Beckman Coulter and Bausch & Lomb, the 2007 show attracted an impressive number of small to medium size emerging medical OEMs from throughout Southern Florida.


Attendees found the centrally located Broward County Convention Center easily accessible. And, while the majority came from Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties, a significant number of attendees traveled from the central part of the state.


Below is a sampling of major manufacturers that have sent engineers and buyers to the show:  ABB, Air Turbine Technologies, Airline Support Group, American Bidet, Anspach, Armstrong Power Syst., B/E Aerospace, Bausch & Lomb, Beckman Coulter, Cordis, Biomet Microfixation, Crossmatch Technologies, DME Corp.,  Danfoss Turbocor, Dayton Granger, Elliot Microturbines, GE Healthcare, GE Security. Gables Engineering, Home Diagnostics, Hunter Douglas, JB Audio, KB Electronics, L'Oreal, Lockheed Martin, Mako Surgical Marshall Space Flight Center, Micro Group, Motorola, Nipro, Noven Pharmaceuticals, Ray Marine, Raytheon, Saint-Gobain, Sikorsky Aircraft, Telecommunication Syst., Thales E-Security, Volvo Aero, Walt Disney World.



Engineers and buyers attending an AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo can find one or multiple sources to take a project from concept or prototype to finished product quickly and at competitive prices. OEMs can find sources for engineering, design, prototypes, forming, fabricating, machining, finishing, assembly and electronic manufacturing services all under one roof. Whether looking for one part or production runs, attendees find multiple sources from which to choose.  AmCon offers attendees a unique opportunity to investigate a variety of manufacturing options, both new and traditional, and find the best processes and materials for specific applications. Attendees view actual samples of products that have been produced for other OEMs in their industry and can get quotes on current projects and compare quality, pricing, and lead times from multiple vendors all in a few hours. Only AmCon shows provide a "hands on" one-on-one education. Since the exhibits are staffed with top management and technical personnel, attendees have an in-depth discussion regarding project design, materials and production issues. AmCon shows are free, including seminars on a variety of manufacturing processes and quality issues.   Fall 2008 AmCon shows include Fort Lauderdale, FL - Sept. 23-24; Minneapolis, MN - Oct. 7-8; Phoenix, AZ - Oct. 14-15; Houston, TX - Oct. 29-30; Greensboro, NC - Nov. 18-19.   Register today to attend any of these shows at:
