Canadian Machine Tool Trade Shows

Machine tool trade shows bring together experts, suppliers and buyers from the machine tools and tooling industry. These events offer hands-on experience with new products and the opportunity to connect with regional companies that are leaders in the industry.

Canada’s manufacturing industry has an extensive machine tooling presence, especially in Ontario, where 500+ tool, die and mould makers are located. Out of multiple machine tool trade shows held in Canada, three hold prominence within the manufacturing industry. From CNC machines and software to cutting tools, micro manufacturing and more, these shows have multiple featured technologies within the machine tooling industry.


The Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) draws professionals from the machine tools and tooling, metalworking, and advanced manufacturing industries. The focus on these three manufacturing disciplines is woven throughout event programming, offering attendees the chance to participate in related conferences and workshops as well as connect with prominent suppliers.

As Canada’s national manufacturing event, CMTS is among its most prominent machine tool trade shows. This event takes place every two years in Toronto. The attendee profile includes executives and owners, manufacturing engineers, production teams, R&D professionals, and other decision-makers looking to source quality industrial suppliers. Whether you’re a supplier, buyer, or professional looking to network within the Ontario area, you should attend CMTS.


For those in the Quebec province of Canada, there’s the Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS). This event is one of Quebec’s leading machine tool trade shows as well as the province’s most important manufacturing technology event. The regional focus means professionals attending the event are interested specifically in the Quebec manufacturing industry, making this a valuable investment for manufacturers within the province.

Area machine tool manufacturers who attend MMTS will learn from local manufacturing success stories, gaining actionable insights to help them evolve and remain competitive. Attend MMTS to connect with regional manufacturers and advance the Quebec manufacturing industry.  


The industrial sector is expanding in western Canada. Manufacturers in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan can continue to grow the industry by attending the Western Manufacturing Technology Show (WMTS), which takes place in Edmonton, Alberta. As Canada’s third-largest manufacturing sector, Alberta is an attractive meeting place for manufacturing companies of all sizes in western Canada. Most of these businesses come from one of these five industries: oil and gas, industrial and commercial machinery, contract manufacturing, fabricated metal and stampings, and agriculture and agriculture equipment.

WMTS is a manufacturing trade show for those in machine tooling, advanced manufacturing, welding, and more. Diverse manufacturing industries from around western Canada converge at this event to discuss the latest technology and work to resolve challenges within the region’s industrial sector. This event facilitates in-person collaboration and actionable relationships between businesses. Become part of western Canada’s growing manufacturing industry when you attend WMTS.
