CanWeld 2018Click image to enlargeA national event for welding and fabricating


CanWeld Conference and Expo brings together metal fabricating and welding professionals from across the country. This year, the event will be held September 12 and 13 (with a reception on September 11 kicking off the event) at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, MB. CanWeld moves between Western and Eastern provinces each year.

Now in its ninth year, the popular event has expanded and will feature more live equipment and technology demos, a comprehensive conference with top industry speakers and networking opportunities.

Supported by the CWB Association, CanWeld 2018 is a must-attend industry event. In addition to the more than 50 educational conference sessions, attendees can visit with more than 100 companies, take part in the CanWeld simulator welding zone and attend CWB’s official networking dinners and galas.

“We are looking forward to hosting this year’s conference and expo at the RBC Convention Centre,” says Dan Tadic, executive director of the CWB Association. “Attendees will get the opportunity to network, see live demonstrations, learn new skills and apply those skills with our virtual and live welding arcs. The CanWeld Conference and Expo is a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience what the welding industry has to offer.”

One of the highlights will be CanWeld’s Best Welder competition, which provides attendees an opportunity to go head-to-head in a live welding skills competition with the country’s most skilled welders. The two-day competition tests participants’ skills against the CWB Certified Welders Assessment program to claim the title
of “Best Welder at CanWeld.”
