5/19/2021: The Chicago Association of Spring Manufacturers, Inc. (CASMI) is re-scheduling SpringWorld 2022 so that it will not conflict with Yom Kippur, announced Tony Pesaresi, CASMI President. The event, which was scheduled to take place Oct. 5-7, 2022, will now take place Oct. 12-14, 2022 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
According to Pesaresi, “SpringWorld taking place during Yom Kippur could have a negative impact on the event in terms of exhibiting company participation and attendance. CASMI strives to provide the best possible business atmosphere for buyers and suppliers at SpringWorld. Therefore, we decided to move the show to the second week in October.”
SpringWorld is renowned for bringing spring-related businesspeople together. In 2018, nearly 2,200 attendees and exhibitors from around the world participated. The event is conveniently located at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois - just five minutes from O’Hare International Airport. Attendance is free and is limited to spring, stamping, fastener, wire form manufacturers, and OEMs.
CASMI was founded in 1944 as a not-for-profit trade association dedicated to the development of good business practices and sharing of technical information through ongoing communications among the job-shop spring manufacturers in the Greater Chicago area. Membership now includes spring companies and industry suppliers from the mid-west and throughout the U.S.
