By Informa MarketsGeneral
The end-to-end event connects the advance manufacturing and design engineering community for in-person networking and deal-making for the first time in eighteen months.
TORONTO — Advanced Design & Manufacturing (ADM) Toronto, Canada’s leading end-to-end conference and exhibition driving exploration into the latest trends and technological advances in the design and manufacturing industries, today announced the in-person return to Toronto with the support of key industry partners:
- Annex Media
- Chemical Industry Association of Canada, Plastics Division
- PAC – Packaging Consortium
- PEMA – Process Equipment Manufacturers Association
Slated for November 9-11 at the Toronto Congress Centre, the 2021 edition of ADM comprises five renowned event brands – PackEX, PLAST-EX, Automation Technology Expo (ATX), Powder & Bulk Solids, and Design & Manufacturing (D&M). Strategically designed to provide an all-in-one experience, attendees will have the opportunity to explore the latest trends and technologies shaping the future of advanced design and manufacturing across automation, robotics, energy efficiency, packaging, plastics, processing, and more.
“The power of face-to-face connection plays an undeniable role in the industry’s advancement and has been sorely missed over the past eighteen months,” said Jenny McCall, Group Event Director, ADM, Informa Markets. “We could not be more excited to reconnect the industry in-person this November in Canada’s epicenter of innovation and progress the manufacturing industry, a sector that accounts for 10% of the country’s GDP. This event is strategically held in Toronto, as its home to a selection of the world’s leading injection mold and toolmakers, additive manufacturing metal powder suppliers, and emerging R&D in machining technology. Many of these innovators will walk the halls of ADM in search of new deals and peer-to-peer connection.”
Geared up to connect 250 brands with thousands of buyers, the event will reunite the community for the first time since in-person meetings came to a halt over eighteen months ago. Among the industry-leading exhibitors includes Absolute Haitian, CAM Packaging Systems, Carlo Gavazzi Canada, Cog-Veyor Systems, Creaform, Firing Industries, Flexlink Systems, IKO Thompson Bearing Canada, Jenike & Johanson, Kongskilde Industries, KUKA Robotics Canada, Multivac Canada, PlexPack Corporation, Proax Technologies, Reiser Canada, SMC Corp, VC999 Canada, and Vortex.
Also serving as a platform for international business connection, the event follows the U.S. and Canada opening borders to international travel. As of August 9, vaccinated American and Canadian travelers with documented proof of vaccination are permitted to travel internationally.
Further laying the foundation for a successful in-person gathering, Canada is now one of the leading countries in the world for vaccinations, with 71% of their population having received at least one dose of the vaccine and 62% of the population being fully vaccinated as of August 13.
