The Institute for Supply Management – Wichita sponsors the Wichita Industrial Trade Show (WITS) with help from volunteers from The Society of the Advancement of Manufacturing. The WITS show is a non-profit fund raiser to support the associations and community projects. Specifically, money from the show is used for scholarships at colleges and universities, various educational materials for Middle and High Schools, and sponsoring professional seminars.
Show management has only (1) part-time paid employee, the rest of the work force is provided solely by volunteers including employees of various companies in the community, who know how important it is to have an opportunity to keep abreast of the latest advancements in automation technologies, which will allow manufacturing competition throughout the world. The WITS management and exhibitors are committed to the common goal of making our community a better place to live work, and enjoy.
We appreciate the time, energy and money it cost the exhibitors to bring machines and services to this Mid-West market place.
We wish to thank David Lippe of the Mid America Commerce and Industry Magazine for many of the pictures on the slide show.
