The AMT Board of Directors and AMT staff have been closely monitoring the impact COVID-19 has had on its members, IMTS exhibitors and visitors, and the industry. We sincerely hope that you, your family and your business remain healthy and safe.
As you may know, we have spent the past several weeks trying to get clarity from Illinois Governor, J. Pritzker, and Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, regarding the exact requirements for trade shows to take place in Chicago. In early May, Governor Pritzker introduced a five-phased plan to reopen Illinois businesses. As it reads, the plan specifically states that conventions are included in phase 5 of the plan. The conditions that must be met for the implementation of phase 5 feature either the availability of a vaccine for the COVID 19 virus or a highly effective treatment protocol, neither of which are expected to occur in the coming months.
ATLANTA – For the first time in its history, IWF – the International Woodworking Fair – has been cancelled. A casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic, IWF was originally scheduled to take place Aug. 25-28 in Atlanta.

LEAN training praised for helping companies get edge in tough times. Expert Die officials say it just makes common sense to take advantage of courses offered by Georgia Northwestern Technical College
“What if we ... ?”
Those three little words have turned into a battle cry for Expert Die, a Whitfield County company inspired by five weeks of special training led by Bob Helms of Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
All 25 of the company’s employees completed the Common Sense LEAN training, which was held on a series of Fridays in October and November at Expert Die’s Cavender Road facility.

When Eric Barr started a new business in his family’s barn back in 1993, he never dreamed it would someday provide a living for more than 20 local families.
But nearly 20 years later, thanks to a lot of hard work and a constant willingness to invest and innovate, Expert Die Inc. is doing just that – and in the process is serving as a shining example for others who may have become discouraged about the struggling Whitfield County economy over the past few years.
“I like my guys,” Barr said during a recent tour of the 15,000-square-foot facility at 733 Cavender Road where his company moved in July, “and I like the fact that Expert Die supplies a living for a lot of different families now.”
