Texas Event Rotates to Houston in 2013

After a sold out inaugural event in Dallas/Fort Worth, UBM Canon is pleased to return to Texas to serve the Greater Houston area. Houston and DFW are extremely comparable in number of manufacturing establishments, employees, and annual payroll. According to the Greater Houston Partnership, the annual output from Houston area manufacturers accounts for 31 percent of all manufacturing in Texas. Dallas/Fort Worth accounts for another third. In 2014, the Texas event will return to the DFW area.
