Two keynotes planned for Advanced Design & Manufacturing Montréal will explore the state of manufacturing in Canada. The event brings together Automation Technology (ATX), Design & Manufacturing (D&M), Expoplast, Pack Ex, and Powder & Bulk Solids shows Nov. 9-10 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in Montréal, Québec.
Keynote speakers Stewart Cramer, the chief manufacturing officer of Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen), and Charles Milliard, president and CEO of the Fédération des Chambres de Commerce du Québec (FCCQ), will explore specialized industry verticals and how the future of Canadian manufacturing is evolving.
“Advanced Design & Manufacturing Montréal will showcase how Canadian manufacturing is flourishing as our speakers discuss what’s to come for the Canadian markets and possibilities to expand Canadian manufacturing on the global and North American stage,” says Shamara Ray, group event director, in a news release. “With constant changes within manufacturing, Canada is an integral global leader in system integration, artificial intelligence (AI), packaging innovation, machine learning, and automation amongst other specialties.”
At Center Stage on Nov. 9 at 11 a.m., Milliard will examine the economics of the industry and how manufacturing has become a cornerstone for the province on a national level. The FCCQ (Québec Chamber of Commerce) Québec represents over 45,000 companies in Québec.
Cramer will kick off the second day of the event on Nov. 10 at 11 a.m. with his talk, “The Transformation Imperative for Canadian Manufacturing.” He will delve into the disruptions of the pandemic, rising inflation, and ongoing international wars, which are prompting Canadian manufacturers to find new opportunities within Industry 4.0 and the digital evolution as global leaders to increase revenue and exports.
