MONTREAL — If you’re a small to mid-size manufacturer in Quebec, be sure to attend the Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS) where you will discover how to compete globally and meet hockey legend Guy Lafleur.
The May 12-14 show at Montreal’s Place Bonaventure presented by SME is extending its hours for a special evening dedicated to independent job shops across the province, and to present the Hockey Hall of Famer and former Montreal Canadien.
“The goal of Job Shop Night is to make it easier for smaller Quebec businesses to source solutions, and network with colleagues and potential customers under one roof in a casual, enjoyable atmosphere,” explained event manager Julie Pike.
On May 13 from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., job shop owners, staff and their adult family members will have access to an expansive exhibition of the latest manufacturing technologies, as well as an opportunity to mingle with Lafleur, the most feared forward of his era and the first player in the National Hockey League to score 50 goals and 100 points in six straight seasons. Participants will also enjoy a complimentary smoked meat sandwich and a drink while they chat with the revered hockey hero.
Following an opening keynote address by noted Les Affaires columnist René Vézina, who will speak about the future of Quebec manufacturing, the event will highlight key advances and new products in machine tools, tooling, metalworking, automation, additive manufacturing, design and physical asset management, along with educational sessions designed to share best practices and lessons learned.
Key exhibitors at MMTS include Elliott Matsuura, Synergy Machine Sales, EMEC Machine Tools, Isotop Inc., Mitutoyo, Walter Canada and Ferro Technique.
This year’s event also features a comprehensive conference line-up on topics such as advanced simulation techniques, lean methodologies, real-time optimization, 3D printing and other process improvements, as well as working demonstrations of cutting-edge technologies right on the show floor.
MMTS 2014 is produced in partnership with The Canadian Machine Tool Distributors’ Association (CMTDA), The Canadian Tooling and Machining Association (CTMA), and Manufacturiers et exporateurs du Québec (MEQ). Partnerships include REAI, Business Information Group (which publishes PLANT), STIQ and MCI.
