Hannover Messe is expanding its presence and its brand in Canada and will co-locate with the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) 2017, September 25-28, at The International Centre in Misssissauga, near Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Why Canada? According to organizers behind Hannover Messe, it identifies manufacturing as paramount to the Canadian economy and recent projects like Industrie 2030 are dedicated to increasing adoption of advanced manufacturing technology, lowering corporate tax rates for manufacturers, eliminating taxes on manufacturing imports, and improving Canada-US border access. This means incentive for increased expenditure on industrial and manufacturing equipment.

It also notes that Ontario specifically is a good location given that 50 per4 cent of Canada's manufacturing output can be attributed to the GTA at $290 billion, claims Hannover Messe organizers.

Five fair trades organized by Germany's Hannover Messe will be co-located with CMTS. They include Industrial Automation Cnaada, MDA Canada, ComVac Canada, CeMat Canada and parts2clean Canada.
