Jeremy Diebel, Senior Manager Machining and Apprentice Coordinator at MTU America, hit the floor running at IMTS 2016.

“Once again, I didn’t have enough time,” Jeremy said. “I really need to push for three days at the show.”

During his two-day visit, Jeremy traversed the show floor, catching up with contacts in person and engaging in portions of the show that were new to him. He explained that attending the biennial show is a priority.

MTU America’s group at IMTS 2016 included a first-time attendee, Darrell Miller, an industrial engineer. Darrell spent a significant amount of his time chatting specifics with like-minded engineers also attending IMTS. Jeremy saw the value in having an industrial engineer gain knowledge and enthusiasm from the experience.

Before they headed to Chicago, Jeremy made an effort to prepare Darrell for the scope of IMTS. “The IMTS mobile app helped a lot,” Jeremy said, “But seeing the show is believing it.”

Beyond taking advantage of the networking opportunities IMTS offers, Jeremy and his team found the building blocks for MTU America’s capital improvement projects. Jeremy said, “The show was bigger and better than ever, which made solutions that work for us easier to find.”

As an apprentice coordinator, Jeremy was impressed by the Smartforce Student Summit at IMTS. “As soon as I got home, I reached out to the local public schools and chamber of commerce,” Jeremy said. “I want to get the financial assistance to make student involvement possible for IMTS 2018.”

As the clock resets and the next IMTS begins to approach, there is no doubt Jeremy will have to add at least one more day—if not two—to his time in Chicago as he continues to make the most of all IMTS offers.
