CHICAGO, July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CWIEME, the Americas' leading conference and trade show for electric motors, generators and transformers, has expressed its long-term commitment to working together with attendees to shape its future. Based on their feedback, the annual event returns October 2-4, 2018 to Illinois with an all-new educational program and improved networking opportunities to help better meet their needs.

The U.S. production market for electric motors, transformers and generators (EMTG) is the second-largest globally. Add in Canada, Mexico and Latin America and the EMTG community in the Americas as a whole is a powerhouse of production for the automotive, construction, HVAC and power generation industries. 

"Right now, the opportunities for the EMTG community in the Americas are the best they have been in the past century, but growth remains largely flat. By providing knowledge and opportunities to connect at CWIEME Chicago, we want to support manufacturers and suppliers in the Americas as best we can to reach their potential – and there's no better partner in this than our own attendees," said Alison Jackson, managing director of the CWIEME Global Series.

Balancing higher performance with lower cost is an ongoing focus for the EMTG community. In response to this challenge, the first two CWIEME Connect seminars of each day will provide a chance for suppliers of magnet wire, coatings, laminations, steel, magnets and battery technology to explain what's new in their areas.

The next four sessions of each day will help attendees to understand new EMTG applications through discussions of the latest trends and case studies of brand-new technologies or ventures. The presentation by Zunum Aero's chief engineer on the company's first hybrid-electric airplane will be a highlight.

CWIEME Chicago will reflect the great interest in talent and technology in the U.S. through a new feature, the CWIEME Big Innovation Pitch. Each afternoon, eight teams will be selected to pitch their ideas in seven minutes, after which the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, delve deeper into the topics and network.
