THE BIG M is an unprecedented event to celebrate manufacturing. Together, leveraging the collective power of an industry, we can find solutions to manufacturing’s most complex issues and technical challenges. And we challenge you – as creative thinkers, problem solvers and technical experts – to join us as we take a fresh look at what’s possible.

THE BIG M is more than an event. It’s a mindset. We’ve partnered with like-minded organizations to create a quality event for committed industry professionals who value collaboration and actionable information. They understand an event like THE BIG M is the place to meet some of the most creative thinkers in manufacturing today, see the most advanced technologies, engage in thought-provoking conversations, and learn about trends directly affecting their businesses. And, importantly, they come to celebrate manufacturing. Because what we make defines us.


THE BIG M showfloor is designed to optimize the interaction among attendees and exhibitors. From M/EXCHANGE to our revolutionary Innovation Factories, we make it easy to connect you, the subject matter expert and creative thinker, to qualified buyers who will be making investments in technologies and applications to take their businesses to the next level.

Keynote addresses, panel discussions, networking receptions, and intimate learning experiences all will take place on the showfloor to keep your brand top-of-mind with attendees.
