Edmonton, AB — As analysts continue to predict a positive economic outlook for Alberta for 2003 and 2004, manufacturing professionals must once again focus on maintaining and expanding their operations in order to keep pace with the speed of business. The Western Manufacturing Technology Show (formerly known as the Western Industrial Technology Exhibition) is a one-stop-shopping opportunity where industrial supply managers and decision-makers can evaluate the latest manufacturing and industrial technologies, products, services, and supplies.

The Western Manufacturing Technology Show (WMTS) caters to all major industries throughout Western Canada. This year’s event takes place June 17 to 19, 2003, at Northlands Agricom, Edmonton, Alta.

WMTS is Alberta’s only machine tool, metal fabricating, plant maintenance and design engineering marketplace. "A total of 3,127 professionals from 1,416 companies came to the last WMTS event in Alberta to see the latest innovations and source new suppliers," says show manager Shelley Sougaris.

At WMTS, industry professionals can learn about the latest technologies for the manufacturing industry by viewing live demonstrations of operational machines, tools and equipment, right on the trade show floor.


"Products for every aspect of manufacturing, from machine tools, metal fabricating and welding equipment, to hydraulics, automation, and instrumentation will be on display," says Sougaris. Leading manufacturers and distributors such as Thomas Skinner, Amada, Elliott, Akhurst, Machine Toolworks, Quality Cutting Tools, Gross Machinery, Stan-Canada, BFG Machine Tools, Moore Industrial, and Kennametal will present solutions to help enhance productivity, reduce downtime and improve quality.

WMTS is sponsored by the Canadian Fluid Power Association (CFPA) and the Canadian Machine Tool Dealers’ Association (CMTDA), and is endorsed by the Canadian Welding Association (CWA).

WMTS is produced by Reed Exhibitions Canada, the country’s leading producer of manufacturing events.
