Employee training is easily overlooked as a means of boosting productivity. A key part of Fabtech Canada 2016 in March will be the conference segment of the event, which will feature speakers addressing the topic from a practical standpoint. The show is the largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event in the country. With more than 20 educational sessions and top industry speakers, it gives attendees access to targeted technical, operational, economic and managerial solutions that address their top priorities. Speakers will be drawn from manufacturing firms such as Tyco Electronics Canada, AlcoTec, McGill University and aizoOn, as well as leading suppliers such as Trumpf, Amada and Graco, with manufacturing leaders, decision makers, suppliers and buyers from coast to coast. Attendees will be able to network with peers, learn from industry experts, exchange best practices and explore the latest technology and advancements in the industry – discovering the solutions needed to advance their career and business. “FABTECH Canada allows us to present and demonstrate our latest technological advances to Canadian manufacturers every two years,” said Peter Burrell, chief operating officer, Amada Canada, Ltd. “It also offers us the opportunity to connect with the industry and speak face-to-face with users about their needs.” A biannual event currently in its third iteration, FABTECH Canada runs from March 22 to 24 at the Toronto Congress Centre. www.fabtechcanada.com
