The biennial show, which alternates years with ADM Montréal, brought together manufacturing industry professionals and suppliers for three days to discuss the latest innovations shaping the future in advanced design and manufacturing across automation, robotics, energy efficiency, packaging, plastics, processing and more, with over 300 exhibitors.

Conference attendees had access to educational tracks covering emerging technologies in automation, women in tech and sustainability in manufacturing.

"Toronto is quickly emerging and being more prominently recognized as the North American hub for technology and innovation. We strive to facilitate the necessary conversations and connections in Advanced Manufacturing to further propel Canada's global position and Ontario's role as a driver in the future of engineering," says Kayle Kvinge, Event Director of ADM Toronto. "The significant expansion this year further reflects the region's flourishing manufacturing sector and the businesses who are leading the charge for a more automated, sustainable, productive future with a sustained, supported and exceptional labour force."
