A new two-day conference on advanced manufacturing technologies is coming to Montreal in November.

The event is called Advanced Manufacturing Canada (AMC), will run November 18-19 at Palais des congrès de Montreal, and is being sponsored by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) along with Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, Manufacturers and Exporters of Quebec, and Regroupement des équipementiers en automatisation industrielle.

The conference will focus on advanced manufacturing technologies, including automation and robotics, additive manufacturing/3D printing, materials and software, and is best suited for manufacturing leaders, business owners, engineers, technologists, government and academia looking for new technologies and applications to improve manufacturing.

“Canadian manufacturers are under increased pressure to be innovative and productive – advanced manufacturing technologies provide solutions Canadians need and will ensure Canada’s place as a world leader in the industry,” said Debbie Holton, director of events and industry strategy at SME. “SME will bring to this event its experience convening industry, government, academia and research to collaborate and innovate.”

According to SME, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on learning environment that combines live technology demonstrations, roundtables and forums, industry experts, interactive panel discussions and technical sessions, and networking time.

“Advanced manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, advanced robotics, automation and the Internet of Things are going to fuel the growth of the global manufacturing sector for years to come,” said Jayson Myers, president of, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters. “The question is not whether or not Canadian companies should adopt these technologies, it’s about how fast Canadian companies can move forward and take advantage of them.”
