CeMAT Canada will celebrate its premiere from 25-28 September 2017 in Toronto. Together with four additional industry topics from the Hannover Messe portfolio, CeMAT Canada will run parallel to the Canadian metalworking trade fair CMTS (Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show). The event venue is the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, which is adjacent to the Toronto Airport.
Ontario is the headquarters of the Canadian automobile industry. Fiat Chrysler, Ford and General Motors operate six plants in the province that produce mainly for the U.S. and overseas markets. In addition, numerous suppliers maintain production facilities in Ontario.
CMTS takes place biennially and attracts 700 exhibiting companies and 9,000 visitors. The show, which is organized by the industry association SME, showcases innovations in machine tools, tooling, metal forming and fabricating, and advanced manufacturing applications. Joining CeMAT Canada in 2017 from the Hannover Messe portfolio are the topics Industrial Automation, MDA (power transmission and fluid technology), ComVac (compressed air and vacuum technology), and parts2clean (parts and surface cleaning).
“Our trade fairs complement the topics at CMTS perfectly. We offer our customers a premium opportunity to enter the Canadian market. Together with SME we will organize the leading industrial event in Canada,” said Krister Sandvoss, global director of CeMAT at Deutsche Messe AG.
