TOP SHOPS. TOGETHER.

For the first time, we're not just bringing all four Top Shops technical programs together, we're making it open, interactive and accessible - for free. The Modern Machine Shop, Plastics Technology, Products Finishing and CompositesWorld Top Shops programs will report the latest benchmarking and business intelligence from the annual Top Shops programs, but will also explore the trends and technologies that are shaping the CNC machining, 3D printing, plastics processing, product finishing and composites fabrication markets. 

#TOPSHOPS

Each Top Shops program will include a presentation of this year's Top Shops data, a panel discussion with Top Shops past and present and a technical track curated by Gardner Business Media Editors.

Frequently asked questions

How much it cost to attend the Top Shops Sessions?


Access to all Top Shops sessions is included in your Top Shop Expo exhibit hall registration. For $49, you can attend all Top Shops exhibits, Top Shops technical sessions and Top Shops Keynotes. There is an extra fee to attend the Top Shops Awards, receptions and special events.




Do I have to take the Top Shops survey to attend?


No. Top Shops Expo is open to all manufacturing professionals. If you've taken the survey, it's a great way to dive even more deeply into the business benefits of Top Shops. If you haven't taken the survey, it's a great introduction into the many ways Top Shops can help your business.




I see there's a co-located Additive Manufacturing Expo, can I attend that?


Yes! Our good friends at Additive Manufacturing Media are hosting the Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo at the same time and at the same place as Top Shops. All Top Shops registrations will be able to visit the Additive Manufacturing Expo exhibit hall for free.




Will you be livestreaming or recording Top Shops?


While there's no replacement for experiencing Top Shops in-person, we do intend to record as many Top Shops technical presentations as possible. Those recordings will be availalbe after the event.
