Canada to get its own FABTECH show in 2012
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl. (FMA), and American Welding Society (AWS) have announced plans to launch the first FABTECH® Canada, to be held March 20 to 22, 2012, at the Toronto Congress Centre. The event will showcase the latest technologies, tools, and trends — with a special focus on fabricating technology —- geared toward the needs of Canada's estimated 1.5 million manufacturing employees in industries such as automotive, energy, transportation, and construction.
"FABTECH Canada 2012 will be a one-stop venue for solutions for welding, lasers, fabricating, bending, forming, and more, tailored to the unique needs of our country's growing manufacturing sector, as well as any business that either produces or relies on equipment and machinery in its day-to-day operations," said Janine Saperson, show manager with SME.
The event will feature an extensive exhibitor pavilion and a three-day conference and Town Hall panel session.
In the U.S., FABTECH will continue to be held annually in three rotating cities: Chicago, Las Vegas, and Atlanta. The FABTECH brand also was successfully introduced to the Mexican market in 2009 as FABTECH Mexico.
