Who will be at the IMTS 2022 show?

IMTS 2022 show organizers anticipate over 129,000 visitors from all facets of manufacturing. According to their 2022 Exhibitor Prospectus, these attendees include manufacturers, owners, managers, engineers, multinational corporations, job shops, and everything in between. In fact, 46 percent of attendees are in management and 82 percent influence buying decisions. 


The show gives companies that specialize in all things digital or traditional manufacturing the chance to find new leads from interested parties. Past shows have found that:

  • 93% of attendees met their goals at IMTS
  • 90% of attendees discover new products or ideas
  • 88% of attendees learn new solutions

IMTS claims that your company will “get 2-to-3 times the exposure and more days to exhibit than any other tradeshow.” Combine this extended display time with the attendees you’ll see, and you know this is a show you can’t miss. 


Question is, how can you make sure they spend time at your booth?

Here’s how to stand out at IMTS 2022

Success at IMTS 2022 depends on you and your exhibit team’s ability to catch the eye of everyone browsing the one-day-only tradeshow. Here are the two booth sizes available at the show, and their specific advantages: 

10 x 10 Exhibit Rentals

10 x 10 Exhibit Rentals are ideal for exhibitors who want to highlight or promote a single product or service. You have room for product display cases, 3D graphic wall, custom light display and flooring, and one seating configuration.

10 x 20 Exhibit Rentals

10 x 20 Exhibit Rentals are a good solution for those showing multiple products and services. You have 20 feet of graphic back wall, multiple seating configurations for demonstrations and lighting education, in addition to custom light and flooring that come standard with our exhibit rentals. 


You’ll need to have at least a 10 x 10 booth presence at IMTS. If you have a larger interest than mere presence at IMTS, Exhibit Experience can help. Our dynamic LED walls with video reels, private projection rooms for closing, overhead projections, new underlit flooring, and much more will catch the eye of those buyers and draw them into your booth.
