The Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS) pulled in more than 4000 manufacturing professionals during the three-day event held May 12-14 at Place Bonaventure in downtown Montreal, QC.

Attendees represented companies that spanned the gamet in size from small sized shops to large OEMs. More than 40 per cent represented companies employing less than 20 people, while 5 per cent of pepople represented companies with more than 2,500 employees. Approximately 35 per cent of attendees identified as company management/corporate executive, owner, quality management or purchasing people, followed closely by 27 per cent who said there involved in the manufacturing production process.

According to a survey MMTS organizer SME conducted, more than 70 per cent of attendees influece equipment purchase decisions in their companies. For attendee Guillaume Delehaye of Bathium Canada, it was an "excellent experience. It allowed me to maintain my technical knowledge of the industry, to expand my network, to establish contact with potential new suppliers. I even started to involve some of them in my company's projects right after the show. It seems to work."

There were 209 exhibiting companies at MMTS 2014.

The next MMTS takes place in 2015.
