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 Minneapolis, MN - Oct. 7-8; Phoenix, AZ -
Oct. 14-15; Houston, TX - Oct. 29-30; Greensboro, NC - Nov. 18-19. Register today
