Something Big is Brewing R ecently, members of the Production Machining and Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) teams took a break from the work week to visit Cincinnati, Ohio's newest craft brew pub. ousands of people from across the region visited not only to celebrate the brewery's opening, but also to celebrate the industry, in general. While it may have been the pint glass talking, we found similarities between the craft beer industry and the precision turned parts market undeniable. Fraternal. Passionate. Artisan. Industrious. And, in this case, celebratory. While we assume it is merely coincidental that Columbus, Ohio, has added a vast and vibrant craft brewing community and embarked on a convention center renovation since PMTS hosted a record-setting event in 2015, we are excited to report some of the new things you will see upon your visit to this year's signature precision turning event. From April 25-27, the precision machined parts industry will connect in Columbus to celebrate the ninth install- ment of the biennial PMTS. While the core of the show remains focused on showcasing equipment, technology and services, there's always something new to see and learn. So, what's new? First, the show will again be bigger than ever before. Currently, PMTS 2017 includes almost 300 exhibitors displaying the latest machines, tooling and workholding, materials, software and more used for growing and evolving your machining business. In addition to exhibits, PMTS includes live machining demonstrations, technical presentations, education opportunities and professional networking. Second, the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC) and the surrounding area have been renovated. Not all the renovations will be complete for PMTS, but visitors will benefit from a new parking garage with a covered connector, new bars and restaurants (more on that later) and a redesigned, in-house dining area. Last, did we mention the vibrant craft brewing commu- nity? e area surrounding the GCCC is now home to 31 local craft breweries, six of which are in walking distance from PMTS, located in "Brewer's Row." e area has more 28 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: APRIL 2017 GUIDE TO COLUMBUS
