Canada’s biggest event for the metal forming, fabricating and welding industries takes place in Toronto March 18-20

It’s only two years old and already it’s making a big splash in the Canadian metal fabricating industry. The two-year-old is FABTECH Canada, which made its debut in Toronto in 2012.

FABTECH Canada 2014 takes place March 18-20 at the Toronto Congress Centre, Toronto, and if the successful inaugural show in 2012 is anything to go by, the 2014 event should be a big success. Back in 2012, FABTECH Canada recorded more than 5000 registered attendees and more than 225 exhibitors.

Indeed, FABTECH Canada organizers, which include SME, The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association (FMA) International, The American Welding Society (AWS), Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and Chemical Coaters Associational International (CCAI), are expanding this year’s event, based on the success of the 2012 event, according to Janine Saperson, SME show manager.

The expansion includes two new industry partners, PMA and CCAI, a larger conference and welding area, and new finishing and stamping pavilions.

“In Canada, there is growing demand for the technical expertise and industry insight provided by an event like FABTECH,” says Saperson. “In Ontario alone, there are 1.7 million manufacturing professionals–the largest amount of manufacturing employees of any jurisdiction in Canada and the US–and the show is geared towards the needs of these employees.”

Two special features at FABTECH Canada include a networking reception on Tuesday, March 18, which runs from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, and a job shop night on Wednesday, March 19. The job shop night, which runs from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, is open to independent job shop owners and is designed to help them network with peers.
