Show management for IMTS -- The International Manufacturing Technology Show 2014 -- has announced the festival schedule for the hallmark IMTS hot air balloon. The IMTS balloon will appear at festivals across the country leading up to its appearance at IMTS being held Sept. 8-13 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
The balloon, which made its inaugural flight in 2004, has achieved almost iconic mascot status. "The IMTS balloon is an important visual object that supports our brand, big enough to be seen from a distance, and interesting enough to draw people closer," said Peter R. Eelman, Vice President -- Exhibition and Communications, AMT -- The Association For Manufacturing Technology. "As long-time IMTS visitors arrive at the South Building and see the balloon outside Chicago's McCormick Place they break into smiles and say, 'It's IMTS time!' For new visitors it's a visually striking and unexpected image."
