Toronto, ON — The organizers of the largest Lean Manufacturing conference ever to be held in North America has selected Toronto as the site for their international conference Oct 6-10, 2003. The Sheraton Conference and Convention Centre is the site of the conference.

Conference organizers include the Wheeling, Ill.,-based Association for Manufacturing Excellence, the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters of Toronto, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers of Dearborn, Mich.

“We gave significant consideration to the situation in Toronto as many of our members had raised concerns about travelling to Toronto,” said Basem Hishmeh, AME president. “Having heard from the experts, we understand that the risks associated with travel to Toronto are minimal and we are very excited about coming to this world-class city.”

“This conference truly will be a world-leader and a must-attend for all manufacturing and process leaders,” commented Perrin Beatty, president & CEO of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters. “With more than 60 best practice presentations, 40 plant tours and a line-up of 14 top keynoters, I can think of no better value than attending this event. We look forward to welcoming delegates from around the world in Toronto.”

The conference is being presented jointly by the Association for Manufacturing Excellence and Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, in collaboration with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. For more information, visit www.measureupforsuccess.com.
