Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show | May 16 - 18, 2016 | Place Bonaventure | Montreal, QC
Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show, province’s most anticipated manufacturing event, to unveil industry’s latest technological breakthroughs
Montreal, Quebec – March 3, 2014 – All Quebec manufacturers know it. In today’s competitive economy, they need to produce goods more efficiently, reliably and economically.
In December, they got a boost from La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the main sponsor of the Québec Manufacturing Fund (QMF), when it announced an injection of $100 million into the fund to help manufacturing companies develop and grow.
Now, the province’s manufacturers can discover the best places to put their investments to profitable use when the Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS) 2014 opens its doors May 12-14 at Place Bonaventure, unveiling some of the industry’s most state-of-the-art equipment designed to help manufacturers compete on a global scale.
The technologies, many being introduced to the Quebec market for the first time, cover machine tools, tooling, metalworking, automation, additive manufacturing, design and physical asset management. Key exhibitors include Elliott Matsuura, Machineries B.V Ltee., Huron Canada, Megatel DMG/Mori Seiki/Ellison Technologies, Haas Automation, AW Miller and Single Source Technologies.
“Quebec manufacturers increasingly have to do more with less,” said Julie Pike, Event Manager. “This event gives them a sneak peek into the future of manufacturing that’s available now, and the knowledge and tools on how best to incorporate new advancements into their own operations.” She explained that an added bonus is the unprecedented networking and business development opportunities the show delivers.
More than 5,000 people are expected to attend MMTS 2014, the province’s most anticipated industry event, which will feature:
“This is the main event dedicated to the growth and advancement of industry in Quebec,” Pike said. “It’s the number one place Quebec manufacturers can go to find creative solutions for their manufacturing operations.”
MMTS 2014 is produced in partnership with The Canadian Machine Tool Distributors Association (CMTDA), The Canadian Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA), and Manufacturiers et exporateurs du Québec (MEQ) and supported in partnership with Business Information Group, STIQ and MCI.
