Advanced Design & Manufacturing Montréal, Canada’s largest manufacturing expo with five co-locates including Expoplast, returned after a four-year hiatus to welcome more than 3,250 verified attendees and nearly 200 international exhibitors at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
Taking place on Nov. 9 and 10, the five co-located events — Expoplast, Pack Ex Montréal, Automation Technology (ATX) Montréal, Design & Manufacturing (D&M) Montréal, and Powder & Bulk Solids Montréal — convened under one roof, attracting industry leaders such as AT Packaging, Centris Technologies, Elfe Plastik, Harpak-ULMA Packaging LLC, and Hiwin Corp.
More than 30 hours of educational sessions were held in French and English at well-attended stages throughout the two-day show, including special keynotes from Charles Milliard, President and CEO of the Fédération des Chambres de Commerce du Québec, and Stewart Cramer, Chief Manufacturing Officer at Next Generation Manufacturing Canada.
Milliard opened the expo stressing the importance of manufacturing in Québec and detailing the importance of continuously working to create an innovative business environment that bolsters different manufacturing verticals in the region.
“The manufacturing sector represents 12.6% of Québec’s GDP, 497,000 employees and 13,600 businesses,” said Milliard, “ADM Montréal is an opportunity to discover a wide range of recent business solutions from all areas of the manufacturing supply chain, all presented by industry professionals and representatives of global suppliers to fuel the discussion on various major topics.”
Overall, manufacturing is the second-largest industry in Québec, establishing itself as a global leader in creating system integration, artificial intelligence (AI), sensors, machine vision, and automation.
“Having our speakers discuss the success in Canadian manufacturing across all platforms showcases the leadership Canada has in the industry on a North American and global stage,” said Shamara Ray, Group Event Director. “Advanced Design & Manufacturing Montréal creates the opportunity [for attendees] to engage with detailed ingenuity in engineering solutions across several specialized industries while also learning about new technological developments, investments, and innovations on a local and international scale in the heart of Québec’s international manufacturing hub.”
Manufacturers and engineers will have another chance to connect across multiple platforms in the Canadian manufacturing industry at Advanced Design & Manufacturing Toronto from May 9 to 11, 2023, at the Toronto Congress Centre.
