The 50th annual National Plant Engineering Show is more exciting than ever, with new pavilions, first-rate conference program, and exciting speakers and special events.

This year, the Plant Engineering Show takes up residence in the South Hall of McCormick Place in Chicago. The Show joins three others -- National Industrial Automation, National Industrial Enterprise, and National Design Engineering -- to create National Manufacturing Week (NMW), the most comprehensive forum for technology, innovations, and solutions for manufacturing in North America. All attendees can cross over from one show to another to get the most out of their visit to NMW.

Special-focus product pavilions make it easy to find specific information. The Buildings and Grounds pavilion and Material Handling & Logistics pavilion are new this year. They join the Energy Management & Power, Fluid Handling, Lighting, Maintenance Software, Safety/Health/ Environmental, and Tools pavilions. The pavilions make it easy to find what you are looking for by gathering all of the applicable products and technologies together in one area.

The NMW Conference program has been reengineered this year with eight focused tracks that address the key role of technology in manufacturing's future. The total number of sessions offered has more than doubled from last year, giving attendees a more focused look at the topic of the sessions. (See our conference overview for sessions of interest to plant engineering professionals.)

Many special events are scheduled for each day at the Show. Monday is Sports Day, where attendees can meet champion race car driver Al Unser, Jr., and his Penske race car in Booth 9473. Tuesday's Industrial Distribution Day features a luncheon, free networking reception, and presentation by Commerce Secretary William M. Daley. On Wednesday, attendees can blast off with NASA at Space Exploration Day. A staff of NASA engineers delivers the keynote presentation, which is open to all NMW attendees.
