About FABTECH, 2017

FABTECH is one of the largest events in the world, let alone North America, for bringing together industry experts and end-users from the fabricating, welding and finishing sectors. An annual event, they boast over 40,000 attendees every year and more than 1,700 exhibiting companies.

FABTECH always try to make the event as jam-packed and useful as possible, so as well as plenty of exhibitors, they also fill each day with professional panel discussions and keynotes from some of the industry’s best. They also offer more than 100 education sessions and, of course, plenty of chances to network with the tens of thousands of other people attending this event. They’ve even put together a justification letter for anyone that is still having any doubts!

Education Program at FABTECH 2017

FABTECH does things a little differently to many of the other exhibitions around the world in that it isn’t only focused on the event itself, it looks beyond it too. This isn’t in the same way as talking about future projects or innovations; instead FABTECH have prepared an education program for all attendees.

These involve practical sessions that will impart you with knowledge on everything from workforce development to additive manufacturing, alongside classroom instructions and tours from experts.

Any attendees of this program will receive professional education credits, credits which go towards recertification requirements. It’s a great little program that gives those who attend just another way to engage in the industry and get something back from it themselves.


SPI Lasers are looking forward to the opportunity to showcase some of our great products at this event. You’ll be able to find us at Booth A3035 with our usual range of high-quality welding equipment.
