This year's iteration of the semiannual International Manufacturing Technology Show is gearing up to be one of the largest on record.

From September 8-13, over 100,000 people from a dozen or so countries will cram into Chicago's McCormick Place to check out the industrial wares, tools and services of nearly 2,000 exhibitors.

It will be an insanely big show that will pull in an insanely big crowd. Chances are, you may be one of them.

If so, we'd like to hear why.
