The Smart Manufacturing Technology Expo (SmartMTX) is back for 2024. The inaugural SmartMTX was held in the Spring of 2023 in Western Canada.

The SmartMTX is a place for manufacturers to identify and explore advanced solutions across automation, robotics, additive manufacturing and digital tools, and learn about productivity-enhancing manufacturing best practices.

The 2024 show will be held May 15th and 16th in Red Deer, Alberta and feature more than twenty hours of educational sessions, keynotes, discussion panels and technology showcases across two stages and nearly 40,000 square feet of exhibition space. There will be opportunities to learn about the latest applications in additive manufacturing as part of the Additive Manufacturing Conference and explore manufacturing best practices as part of the Process Improvement Conference.

The SmartMTX also reportedly supports building a collaborative manufacturing ecosystem across Western Canada where manufacturers can network with like-minded peers and identify local resources such as research institutes, government programs and agencies that provide services and funding to support economic growth and innovation. The industry networking reception will provide a less formal atmosphere to network and discuss everything manufacturing over live entertainment and food.

For 2024, the SmartMTX features three themes identified by Western Canadian manufacturers as their top priorities with smart technology as the common thread that enables solutions and ties the themes together. The three themes are:

  • Overcoming the Labour Shortage
  • Diversifying Manufacturing
  • Sustainability in Manufacturing
