Hannover Fairs Canada Collocates Five Shows with Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show 2017

December 27, 2016

Hannover Fairs Canada (HF Canada), Deutsche Messe’s Canadian subsidiary, today has formed a partnership with SME to collocate Industrial Automation, Motion, Drive & Automation, ComVac, parts2clean, and CeMAT trade shows with the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS).

“We were looking to secure a home for these five industrial events in Canada alongside a larger, well-established manufacturing technology trade show,” said President and CEO of HF Canada Larry Turner.

He added, “The opportunity to showcase these five advanced manufacturing technology shows and their industrial applications to the Canadian audience and beyond is a perfect complement to the technology currently displayed at CMTS and the event’s attendee profile.”

The collocated trade shows will take place next year at CMTS Sept. 25-28 at The International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario adjacent to the Toronto Airport.

CMTS is a biennial manufacturing event that will draw more than 9,000 attendees to connect with more than 700 exhibiting companies represented, according to SME officials.

The event showcases the latest advancements in machine tools, tooling, metal forming and fabricating and advanced manufacturing applications.

The five industrial technology events powered by HANNOVER MESSE represent five industry sectors: industrial automation; power transmission, fluid technology and motion control; compressed air and vacuum technology; surface finishing; and logistics systems and equipment.

The five HF Canada trade shows will collocate with CMTS every other year in the odd-numbered years.

Manufacturers across a wide range of industries from smaller job shops to the leaders in the automotive and aerospace sectors will find industrial technology solutions and machines to advance their manufacturing operations.

"SME is excited about this co-location initiative at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show,” said Julie Pike, director, Canadian Events at SME.

She added, “Manufacturing is vital to Canada and the inclusion and emphasis of these industry sectors will allow us to offer even more resources and solutions.”

And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
