The Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show started Monday, here in Toronto. It’s one of the first in-person events held since the start of the pandemic – and definitely the first in-person event we’ve attended since that time.
We headed out to the International Centre on Monday morning to learn about advances in manufacturing technology and meet with various businesses. CMTS’s 2021 event is hybrid and while it’s physical footprint might seem slightly smaller than in previous years, the hall was filled with numerous companies showcasing the latest in manufacturing tech – and attendees wanting to learn more.
CMTS’s event line-up also includes keynotes from speakers discussing everything from artificial intelligence (AI) to building a resilient supply chain. (View the full speaking schedule here.)
CMTS is being held at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Road, Mississauga (door 2), and runs through Thursday October 7. Event organizers are observing COVID-19 guidelines implemented by the Ontario government and city of Toronto. This includes masking, social distancing, and showing proof of vaccination before entry. Visitors to Canada should also be aware of Government of Canada’s travel protocols; you can learn more on our website, or the Canadian government’s own web page.
