The sheet metal industry will be holding "EuroBLECH," its 18th global exhibition, Oct. 26-30 in Hanover, Germany. This is the first event for sheet metal workers since the expansion of the European Union, providing the opportunity to make new contacts. All aspects of the sheet metal industry will be on display at EuroBLECH 2004—from fastening and joining technology, sheet metal products, and components to research and development.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
