Midwest Clean Tech 2010: On September 14th Italy’s Commitment to Sustainability Stands Evident

Chicago - A highlight of both the IMTS and Midwest Clean Tech 2010 shows will be the September 14th, 2010 Midwest Clean Tech evening reception jointly sponsored by the Chicago Office of the Italian Trade Commission and UCIMU–SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Italian Machine Tools, Robots and Automation Manufacturers' Association.

This event will conveniently take place on the Roof Top Terrace of McCormick Place's West Pavilion, which has spectacular views of the city on three sides. The location reflects Italy's ongoing commitment to sustainability as the building is certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), meaning it is designed in an environmentally responsible manner.

At IMTS 2010 (September 13-18, 2010), over 70 Italian manufacturers will be showcasing full lines of machinery and technology providing the latest in clean, green and sustainable solutions for manufacturers' needs.




Creativity, innovation and flexibility are the three key elements that mark Italy's recognized world leadership in the machine tools industry, and have helped keep Italy as a top three provider to the global marketplace.

Over 400 guests are expected, including leading Italian machine tool manufacturers and representatives of top U.S. buyers and distributors of Italian made machine tools. The featured speakers for this event are:

- Giancarlo Losma, President of UCIMU – SISTEMI PER PRODURRE


- Pasquale Bova, Trade Commissioner, Italian Trade Commission-Chicago Office

In addition, UCIMU will introduce the 27th Edition of BI.MU 2010 taking place next month (October 5-9, 2010) in Milan, Italy, which promises to once again be the main showcase allowing visitors to see the latest in planning processes and the manufacturing of new products. Exhibits will cover all types of metal forming and metal cutting machines, robots, automation and auxiliary technologies. The latest information on the show can be found at www.bimu-sfortec.com.
