North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event is almost here!

Here’s our short list of this year’s best offerings:

Experts & Famous Faces

Three days of special keynotes, panel discussions and other events will let you hear directly from experts on the state of the industry, working with Generation Z, and more.

Industry Night at Mercedez-Benz Stadium

Get a tour of the brand-new home of the Atlanta Falcons, including the locker room. Eat, drink and be merry with industry peers. Say hello to University of Florida football coach Steve Spurrier. (Note: Tickets to this event are an extra $75-100.) 

Over 1,500 Exhibitors

After your first stop at our booth (American Torch Tip Co. #C12062) be sure to check out the rest of the show floor to see the latest in tech, pick up free swag, and see what the competition is up to. And, if this floor plan looks overwhelming … there’s an app for that.

The FABTECH 2018 Mobile App

FABTECH is a massive conference. Especially if your time is limited, the app is an easy way to make sure you get the most out of your time. You can make your own schedule, bookmark exhibitors, connect with your colleagues, and (coolest of all) find exhibitors on interactive maps and even get the best route to see them all.
