WESTEC, the region’s definitive manufacturing event, returns in 2012 to the Los Angeles Convention Center redefined, and with renewed commitment to area industry. WESTEC is a true manufacturer’s think tank where creativity, vision, and strategy join forces to spotlight the promise of ground-breaking products for vital global markets.
The focus is on people using technology to innovate. WESTEC is where collaboration starts – a place to network, form relationships, and build partnerships. WESTEC is where technology takes center-stage, putting new developments, integration, and solutions right into your hands.
WESTEC has always been the West Coast’s “can’t miss” event, a technology showcase that helped generations of manufacturers grow their businesses. WESTEC is more than a manufacturing exposition. This is where you’ll meet experts who can help apply cutting-edge equipment, make sense of lean methods, and manufacture with composites, titanium, or other advanced materials. Think about the many technology breakthroughs of recent decades: chances are they were unveiled at WESTEC.
Only WESTEC brings you the very latest technologies – from cutting tools to multi-tasking machine tools, all from top international equipment manufacturers. Learn from fellow attendees how WESTEC can help your company cut costs, enhance quality, or earn a place on an OEM’s preferred supplier list. If these are your company’s goals, WESTEC is where you need to be!
Manufacturing is evolving, and so is WESTEC. In addition to expert-led conference sessions, WESTEC 2012 brings you the Emerging Technology Showcase highlighting applications for micro, nano, and additive manufacturing; Milestones in Manufacturing, a celebration of key technology developments; eye-opening plant tours; and a presentation of California-made products.
