  • Competing in the Global Marketplace: 3 Reasons to AMC

    (TORONTO, October 27, 2016) – SME’s Advanced Manufacturing Canada (AMC) arrives at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto Nov. 2-3. AMC is a two-day conference and exhibition focused on fostering a national dialogue about how manufacturers can leverage advanced manufacturing to stimulate innovation, increase productivity, and compete in the global marketplace now and into the future. Explore advanced manufacturing through AMC’s presentations, exhibitors and special events.

    Here are 3 things you will only see at AMC 2016:


    • Network and Collaborate on the Show Floor – Join industry leaders, influential organizations, and manufacturers on the show floor for an exclusive Opening Networking Reception. This networking opportunity offers the Canadian manufacturing community a chance to communicate with each other in a casual, fun environment.


    • Exchanging Ideas in Technology Xchange – With an emphasis on innovation and productivity enhancements, Advanced Manufacturing Canada is an all-around experience to see and learn what’s new in Advanced Manufacturing technologies, products and services. Attendees can meet face-to-face with knowledge and product experts, and gain a deeper understanding and awareness of new and evolving Advanced Manufacturing technologies.


    • Global Manufacturing Competitiveness – Leveraging Deloitte’s 2016 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index, Stephen Brown, managing partner, Deloitte, will discuss the current drivers of competitiveness and the ranking of top countries including Canada. He will also look at the changes occurring globally and what companies and Canada need to do in order to stay competitive in an increasingly globalized marketplace.


    “The global manufacturing industry is in the midst of a profound shift in the basis of competition,” said Brown. “The Deloitte presentation will explain the shift and the implications for Canada’s manufacturing industry.”


    Everyone interested in the future of the Canadian manufacturing sector will benefit this year from the vast array of experts and practitioners that will be converging at AMC 2016 in Toronto.
