The Canadian Association of Mold Makers (CAMM) Trade Fair will kick off in Windsor, Ont. on Tuesday, and this year’s outing will be drastically different. CAMM has been working with provincial trade offices, federal trade offices, the Windsor Essex Development Commission (WEDC) and the Export Development Commission (EDC) to attract serious buyers to the show.
The tabletop show traditionally draws a decent crowd from Ontario and Michigan, but this year CAMM has used a $100,000 grant from the Ontario government to attract overseas customers.
“Traditionally in the past, we would rent a hall and all of our suppliers would come in and show their latest wares,” noted CAMM president Dan Moynahan. “It was more of a social thing, and then people would get together and we’d have dinner together. This year, I felt the times called for something different.”
CAMM has managed to attract more than 50 nontraditional customers from outside Canada. The event will also feature motivational speakers and seminars for mold, tool and die shop owners.
