FABTECH 2021 in Chicago was one of the first large shows to return to McCormick Place after rules eased in that city. FABTECH Canada 2022 will play a similar role for Canadian attendees at the Toronto Congress Centre June 14-16.
After two years of limited in-person events, this year fabricators and welders will finally have the opportunity to visit with a wide variety of industry suppliers— approximately 350 exhibitors—under one roof close to home.
Canada took aggressive measures to ensure the safety of individuals during the pandemic. As those restrictions are removed, industry to gather again to share ideas of how to move forward at a time when logistics and supply chain issues make home-grown parts that much more critical for manufacturers.
“The industry has changed greatly in the past few years, not only due to the pandemic, but also due to the pace at which fabricators are required to produce finished product,” said Mark Hoper, senior vice-president, media & expositions at Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl. (FMA), a FABTECH Canada event partner. “Regardless of the industries they are serving, shops are making parts as fast as they can. New equipment demands are high, but lag times are up to 12 months for deliveries. Companies have to consider how to work smarter as they invest in their futures. The drive to automate and to improve efficiencies in shops is more critical than ever. For the first time in four years, Canadians have a chance to test-drive the technology that will help them manage this changing landscape close to home. We are excited to return to Toronto with our show partners.”
