Toronto, ON — The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) presents the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS), an industrial and educational showcase for the latest manufacturing innovations and trends, at the Direct Energy Centre on October 15, 16, 17, and 18, 2007.

CMTS is Canadas largest industrial trade event, with over 600 companies on hand to showcase their technologies to an expected audience of more than 10,000 delegates from across Canada. CMTS 2007 features many new educational opportunities never before available at an event of its kind.

This edition of the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show is full of innovation — from the technologies found on the exhibit floor to the comprehensive educational elements that are designed to bring powerful knowledge to the attendee, said Ken Tomihiro, show manager. Manufacturing truly is spoken here.

CMTS opens on Monday morning, Oct. 15, with a keynote address by William ‘Willy’ Geary, president of Boeing Canada Operations and general manager, Boeing Winnipeg Division. Geary will speak on ‘Leveraging Global Strengths to Create the Future of Flight’.


Also on Oct. 15, SME celebrates its largest Canadian event and 75 years in the manufacturing community with a 75th Anniversary Reception.

On Oct. 16, and also for the first time, CMTS presents a dynamic Interactive Town Hall. This program will provide a unique opportunity for delegates to speak directly with a panel of manufacturing industry experts, including Dr. Jayson Myers, president of the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME); Tom Vandaloo, advisory partner, operations and improvement, KPMG; Brian Holmes, president, SME; and Paul Hogendoorn, president and co-founder, OES Inc.

Rounding out the educational program is a comprehensive series of seminars and tours of local manufacturing facilities designed to provide in-depth technical insights for all participants. Another new program, Innovations 2007, will feature more than 50 exhibitors demonstrating the very latest technologies in manufacturing.
