Advanced Manufacturing Canada is a new trade showClick image to enlargeThe Canadian manufacturing industry will have a new trade show to attend this year: Advanced Manufacturing Canada (AMC), which takes place in Montreal November 18-19.

 Show organizers and partners are SME, along with Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), Manufacturers and Exporters of Quebec (MEQ) and Regroupement des équipementiers en automatisation industrielle (RÉAI).

AMC will bring to the Canadian manufacturing community a two-day conference focused on advanced manufacturing technologies, including automation and robotics, additive manufacturing/3D printing, materials and software. According to show organizers, by gathering C-level executives, industry representatives, academia and government under one roof, AMC’s aim is to educate the manufacturing industry on how companies can produce products faster and less costly, while maintaining quality standards with the implementation of new technologies.

“Canadian manufacturers are under increased pressure to be innovative and productive – advanced manufacturing technologies provide solutions Canadians need and will ensure Canada’s place as a world leader in the industry,” says Debbie Holton, director of events and industry strategy at SME. “SME will bring to this event its experience convening industry, government, academia and research to collaborate and innovate.”

Taking place at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, the event will provide a unique face-to-face opportunity to discover dynamic technology with interactive exhibits and demonstrations, along with industry networking. Best suited for manufacturing leaders, business owners, engineers, technologists, government and academia looking for new technologies and applications to improve manufacturing, AMC delivers value across industries, including automotive, aerospace, medical, energy, agri-food, mining, construction, electronics, and commercial and industrial equipment, to name a few.

"RÉAI is very excited to partner with SME to produce an event that offers the manufacturing industry in Canada automation solutions to increase productivity," says Donald Turcotte, president of RÉAI. “This is in hand with RÉAI's mission to enhance Quebec manufacturers' reputation in the international market.”

Éric Tétrault, president of MEQ, says "companies must integrate new materials, as well as more automated and robotized processes. To encourage the industrial renewal necessary for our competitiveness, we must organize the consultation and coordination of the actors of innovation. This major conference will be a unique opportunity to meet."

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on learning environment that combines live technology demonstrations, roundtables and forums, industry experts, interactive panel discussions and technical sessions, ample networking and unprecedented access to transformational technologies and innovative applications.

“Advanced manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, advanced robotics, automation and the Internet of Things are going to fuel the growth of the global manufacturing sector for years to come,” says Jayson Myers, president, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, the voice of manufacturing and global business in Canada. “The question is not whether or not Canadian companies should adopt these technologies, it is about how fast Canadian companies can move forward and take advantage of them.”
