Helander’s Fabtech Canada 2012 Preview

Posted by Samuel Ibrahim, Jr. on Fri, Mar 09, 2012

One Fabtech show in a year is quite an event. But all the metalworking expo action isn’t in Chicago. This year’s Fabtech Canada 2012 expo, happening in Toronto from March 20 – 22nd, 2012, promises to be just as exciting and informative as its stateside counterpart. We found the January show to be overwhelmingly helpful, and won’t be attending Fabtech Canada this year. We will, however, point you in the direction of some of the most promising panels and events at the conference.

Don’t Miss: The Keynote Speaker, race car driver and TV star Andrew Comrie-Picard. Andrew will be discussing his varied career – from attorney to racer to TV-host-of-all-trades – and talking about thinking outside the box in manufacturing, from materials to processes. One way to do that? Look into hydroforming instead of other processes.

Get Involved: Wednesday’s Toen Hall discussion will allow you to pose some questions or share some answers, recognizing that the expertise at Fabtech Canada is among all attendees, not just speakers.

Look Ahead: Thursday’s presentations will focus on the future of welding and manufacturing as a whole, including a talk on using technology to close the machining skills gap. In the pursuit of young, talented engineers and machinists to fill and ever-growing number of positions, there are a number of ways to find them. One of them? Social media, meeting them on their level. This is just one of the many reasons Helander has initiated our extensive social media outreach.

We hope to hear from any and all Fabtech Canada 2012 attendees! Share your stories or advice here.
