Toronto, ON — CMTS — the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show — is scheduled to take place Oct. 15-18, 2007, at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto.

Called Canada’s definitive manufacturing event, it will allow attendees to compare leading-edge production technology and innovation. More than 600 manufacturers and distributors are scheduled to exhibit at the show.

The event includes a conference with an opening keynote address by William Geary, president of Boeing Canada Operations Ltd. and general manager of Boeing Canada Technology – Winnipeg Division, the largest components supplier to Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

Interactive town hall sessions will feature panels of experts — including business leaders, media, government representatives and industry associations recognized for their world-class manufacturing and expertise — who will come together to discuss the most pressing issues facing Canadian manufacturers today. Each expert will discuss some of their ideas and strategies toward achieving best manufacturing practices and answer questions in these interactive sessions.


In addition, a Roundtable Series will present industry experts who will provide a comprehensive selection of technical seminars and presentations. Each of these 90-minute sessions will provide opportunities for delegates to expand their knowledge and sharpen their skills to meet the challenges ahead.

Each morning, CMTS will feature topical seminars in 4 tracks:
– Monday: Making Lean Work for the Job Shop and Small Manufacturer
– Tuesday: Mold Making Technologies and Applications
– Wednesday: Laser Cutting: Understanding Equipment and Processes
– Thursday: Laser Cutting: Exploring Applications and Real Life Examples.

After each seminar, attendees will board a shuttle to a local manufacturing facility to observe these very practices in action during a plant tour specially selected to correspond to the morning session.

CMTS is produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. For details, visit
