The Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS) is Quebec's definitive manufacturing event. MMTS is the largest and most important event servicing North America's French marketplace and the leading event for machine tools and factory automation technology. MMTS features a strong factory automation focus including control systems, software and hardware, assembly technology and test/inspection. Technology-focused exhibits, along with a relevant industry keynote, interactive town hall experience and cutting-edge technical sessions make MMTS a must-see event for manufacturers looking for the products, solutions and technology they need to stay competitive. MMTS is organized by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and connects key Quebec industries like Aerospace, Transportation, Energy, Medical and Mining with technology and process innovations in machining, metalworking, automation, fabrication and more. MMTS continues to evolve beyond a tradeshow into a multi-dimensional industry event offering: buying and matchmaking opportunities, manufacturing innovation, educational programs promoting the most relevant topics, and multiple networking opportunities.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
