(Atlanta, Oct. 23, 2014) ― FABTECH is getting in the game! The event is hosting its first FABTECH Industry Night on Wed., Nov. 12, 2014, at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. Sponsored by Georgia Power, Industry Night provides FABTECH attendees an exclusive look at one of Atlanta’s newest attractions. 

FABTECH, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event will bring together an anticipated 27,000 attendees and more than 1,400 exhibitors all under the roof of the Georgia World Congress Center for three days, Nov. 11-13, 2014.

For FABTECH attendees, the opportunity to interact with manufacturing industry leaders doesn’t stop at the FABTECH show doors. Within walking distance of the show, Industry Night at the College Football Hall of Fame will provide invaluable networking opportunities beyond the exhibit hall floor. Attendees will enjoy food and drinks as they are connecting with old friends and mingling with new peers, all while surrounded by some of the most iconic symbols of college football and images of the sport’s greats.

One planned high point of the evening will be a special appearance by four-time Super Bowl champion, Vietnam War veteran and FABTECH keynote speaker, Rocky Bleier. Bleier will speak that same day (Nov. 12) at 8:30 a.m. to FABTECH attendees, offering parallels between the challenges he’s faced and the challenges all manufacturers face in today’s crowded, competitive marketplace. His motivating message will provide the audience with the drive to achieve their goals and improve their businesses. 

The College Football Hall of Fame opened on Aug. 23, 2014, making FABTECH Industry Night guests among the first to experience the exhibits. Attendees will enjoy an interactive experience customized to their favorite college team. In addition, guests will be able to view exciting galleries and immerse themselves in the world of college football ― from sitting in a replica of the ESPN College GameDay Desk to testing their talents in the Skill Zone, a 45-yard replica of the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl field.

Tickets to Industry Night are still available, but it is expected to be a sold-out event. Advance tickets for attendees are $50 and include admission, a customized Hall of Fame fan experience, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets purchased after Nov. 7 are $75.
