CWMDA's Technology Days a success, another event planned for next year.

Hundreds of woodworking professionals attended nine participating members' Toronto-area showrooms as part of the Canadian Woodworking Machinery Distributors Association's Woodworking Technology Days.
Held Oct. 22-24, the event provided "an opportunity to have an efficient and significant overview of the latest technology available from the top manufacturers worldwide."
As a result of COVID-19 cancellations and restrictions, CWMDA saw the need and opportunity for a live, in-showroom event with members greeting visitors in their respective showrooms "in a controlled environment," to see “more machinery, more live demos and more technology," and talk to experts about their shop needs.
“Considering the COVID-19 context and restrictions, companies IMA-Schelling, HOMAG, Biesse and all other CWMDA members have reported a very satisfying number of customers with more than two hundreds visitors attending the machinery presentations and demos at eight locations, over three days,” says Marc Proulx, manager for the CWMDA.
“Most visitors said they were happy with the formula as the joint event allowed them not only to plan better, but also have the vendors full attention, which is not always the case at a traditional show.”
Proulx added that in terms of technology, each showroom featured an impressive display along with demos that certainly proved the value of the event for anyone investigating top level equipment.
“Altogether, CWMDA members feel the WTD event was a success and have already confirmed their decision to repeat the event at the fall of 2021.”
