Exhibit space is 99 per cent sold and excitement is growing for the Western Manufacturing Technology Show (WMTS), which features cutting-edge technology and world-class education to equip western Canadian manufacturers with the tools and knowledge to help them overcome today’s challenges and grow their businesses.

Proudly presented by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, WMTS will be held at the Edmonton EXPO Centre (7515 – 118 Ave) from June 4 to 6, 2013. As the people of Alberta’s manufacturing sector are planning their future, the time is now for industry professionals to address production challenges and learn about the latest technologies and best practices to remain competitive.

New components to the program this year include: a Job Shop Night from 4:00-6:00 PM on Wednesday, June 5 offering an opportunity for busy job shop owners to source and compare the latest products and services; a high-level, engaging education program with presentations on the show floor (free with admission); plenty of opportunities to network with technology companies and other industry professionals; and loads of live machinery and product demonstrations to engage the audience.

"For manufacturers, WMTS is the place to learn, evaluate and compare technologies and solutions on a one-on-one basis. All under one roof, over three days," says Janine Saperson, event manager. More than 2,000 attendees are expected to attend this highly anticipated biennial event.
