Press Release Summary: Rapid Sheet Metal Endorses Regional AmCon Expos

Press Release Body: Jay Jacobs of Rapid Sheet Metal was recently interview about
what he found as an exhibitor at an AmCon Expo that is unique from other shows.
Jacobs said, "Amcon offers several unique attributes. Shows in locations that are
in big established markets as well as small, niche markets; an ease of exhibiting
(paperwork, accessibility to show personnel, and particularly setup - no Union
hassles); the follow up opportunity of requesting contact info from select target
companies that did not make it to the show; and the opportunity to present a seminar
to attendees."

Rapid Sheet Metal's Expectations from Exhibiting an AmCon Expo

Jacobs noted, "We expect to walk away with close to 100 leads of which we calculate
roughly 25-30% will quote us and 10-15% will become customers over the next two
years. It is also an opportunity to make a lot of sales calls - the customers come
to us rather than us driving around for a couple days seeing each of them
individually. Depending on the market, we typically see this figure met."

"I strongly believe line mechanical engineers who are designing components should
attend (as well as the obvious engineering managers and purchasing agents/ managers)
should attend an AmCon Expo," urged Jacobs. He continued, "Manufacturing technology
is changing quickly and this is a hands-on opportunity to talk to jobshops on the
front-lines of what is now possible in specific manufacturing processes. IE,
tolerances, tooling alternatives, new machining center capabilities, are important."

The benefits of attending a regional AmCon show are significant. Engineers and
buyers attending an AmCon Contract Manufacturing Expo can find one or multiple
sources to take a project from concept or prototype to finished product quickly and
at competitive prices. OEMs can find sources for engineering, design, prototypes,
forming, fabricating, machining, finishing, assembly and electronic manufacturing
services all under one roof. Whether looking for one part or production runs,
attendees find multiple sources from which to choose. AmCon offers attendees a
unique opportunity to investigate a variety of manufacturing options, both new and
traditional, and find the best processes and materials for specific applications.
Attendees view actual samples of products that have been produced for other OEMs in
their industry and can get quotes on current projects and compare quality, pricing,
and lead times from multiple vendors all in a few hours. Only AmCon shows provide a
"hands on" one-on-one education. Since the exhibits are staffed with top management
and technical personnel, attendees have an in-depth discussion regarding project
design, materials and production issues. AmCon shows are free, including seminars on
a variety of manufacturing processes and quality issues. To register for these
shows go to www.AmConshows.com.
