UBM to Host Inaugural ADM Event in Cleveland
Santa Monica, CA — Ohio ships $31 billion in automotive-related gross regional product out of state annually and boasts an $8 billion aerospace and aviation industry. To engage this market, UBM's Advanced Design & Manufacturing (ADM) Cleveland event, which will be held March 29-30 at the Cleveland Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, is dedicated to supporting these high-growth markets.

The new show will offer two days of free industry education, automotive and smart manufacturing conference content, and a dynamic expo experience. The show floor includes key facets of manufacturing that are of particular interest to automotive and aerospace engineers, such as plastics, automation and robotics. These hot-topic areas of the industry will be on display under the familiar UBM show brands, represented as zones: PLASTEC (Polymers and Plastics), ATX (Automation & Robotics), and D&M (Design & Manufacturing).

Visitors to ADM Cleveland will have the opportunity to focus on the industry that applies the most to their business, but also see innovation across all facets of manufacturing on the diverse show floor that also includes MD&M (Medical Design & Manufacturing) and Packaging (PACK).

"UBM has crafted a tailor-made experience at ADM Cleveland to benefit the automotive and aerospace audience," says Nina Brown, VP of events at UBM. "Attendees and exhibitors alike are encouraged to leverage the end-to-end quality of the expo floor along with the unmatched conferences and diverse content in the areas of light-weighting, sensor technology, smart factories, Internet of Things (IoT) and new materials, among many others."

Home to a workforce of over 108,000 automotive employees and 41,000 aerospace staff, Ohio offers a wealth of regional decision-makers and purchase influencers including Airbus, Boeing, Chrysler (Jeep), Eaton Corporation, Ford, General Electric Aviation, General Motors (GM), Honeywell International, Lockheed Martin, National Air and Space Administration's Glenn Research Center, Northrop Grumman, Ohio Aerospace Institute, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and United Airlines.

Given the significance of the automotive industry in Northeast Ohio, ADM Cleveland's conference series will also contain a free educational conference dedicated to the automotive industry. The conference will investigate a myriad of topics directly related to the current state of the industry, such as new manufacturing techniques and the movement toward better fuel efficiency.

UBM has worked diligently to populate the inaugural ADM Cleveland event with key Ohio-based suppliers, manufacturing associations, sponsors, and exhibitors across all industries. Participants include Absolute Haitan, ENGEL, Maruka USA, Milacron, Sepro America LLC, Wittman Battenfeld, and Yushin America.

The trade show has been designed to raise the bar for sourcing, education and networking in Ohio's advanced design and manufacturing sector. With a strong focus on automotive and aerospace, ADM Cleveland is expected to set a new regional threshold for comprehensive advanced design and manufacturing trade shows.
