Westec offered a useful mix of emerging technology and practical applications. This slide show reflects this mix in its eclectic coverage of what exhibitors had to offer.
I can honestly say I’ve never been to a metalworking tradeshow that I didn’t like. This year’s Westec was no exception. Although it was announced that this show will be moved to Long Beach, California, for its next iteration in September 2019, downtown Los Angeles has given this show a little glitz and glamour that sets it apart—at least sets its setting apart—from other shows. In fact, the LA Convention Center, home to Westec, is next door to several skyscraper building projects, further enhancing this show’s luster.
