There’s a new manufacturing trade show coming to Canada.

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl. (FMA) and American Welding Society (AWS) are staging the first-ever FABTECH Canada, to be held in 2012 at the Toronto Congress Centre on March 20-22, 2012. 

“The event will feature the most comprehensive 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,” said Janine Saperson, show manager with the SME.

The show will feature an exhibitor pavilion, Saserson continued, and 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 has been held annually in three rotating cities, including Chicago, Las Vegas and Atlanta. The FABTECH brand was also introduced to the Mexican market in 2009 as FABTECH Mexico.
