North America's Largest Metal Forming, Fabricating, Welding and Finishing Event

2021 Platinum Sponsors

FABTECH 2021 is September 13-16 at McCormick Place Chicago

North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event heads to McCormick Place September 13-16, 2021. FABTECH provides a convenient ‘one-stop shop’ venue where you can meet with world-class suppliers, see the latest industry products and developments, find the tools to improve productivity, and increase profits. We strongly believe in the power of in-person events to discover, educate, and motivate the metal fabrication industry. We have missed the FABTECH community in 2020 and look forward to coming together again to reconnect and help move our industry forward.

Registration will open in January 2021.


Cost to Attend

Show floor admission is complimentary if you register before September 9th, 2021. After the deadline and on-site, the registration fee is $50.
