The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the American Welding Society (AWS) and the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association (FMA) have announced plans to launch the first-ever FABTECH Canada. The metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event will take place at the Toronto Congress Centre, March 20-22, 2012.

The event will showcase of the latest technologies, tools and trends – with a special focus on fabricating technology – geared towards the needs of Canada’s estimated 1.5 million manufacturing employees in industries ranging from automotive and energy to transportation and construction.

“FABTECH has an unsurpassed reputation across North America and we’re thrilled to bring a uniquely Canadian version to the marketplace here,” said Janine Saperson, show manager with SME, which is hosting the premiere event with FMA and AWS. “FABTECH Canada 2012 will be a one-stop venue for solutions for welding, lasers, fabricating, bending, forming and more, tailored to the unique needs of our country’s growing manufacturing sector, as well as any business that either produces or relies on equipment and machinery in its day-to-day operations,” she said.

Being launched in response to growing demand in metal fabrication and to better represent an important industry that many Canadian businesses rely on every day, FABTECH Canada will unveil new products and innovations to the Canadian market through an extensive exhibitor pavilion. It will also provide opportunities for learning and networking with technology experts via a three-day conference and Town Hall panel session.

In the U.S., FABTECH will continue to be held annually in three rotating cities — Chicago, Las Vegas and Atlanta. The FABTECH brand was also successfully introduced to the Mexican market in 2009 as FABTECH Mexico.
