The Canadian Woodworking Machinery Distributors Association (CWMDA) says the success of this year’s Woodworking Technology Days (WTD) event has firmly established it as a professional and national industry show.
With about 1,000 visitors from across the country, the event has surpassed “our expectations and proves that this is the right format to best serve our members and the industry.”
WTD 2021, held Nov. 1-6, has been a great success, both in terms of the attendance and quality of visitors as well as presenting the latest trends and innovative solutions for the woodworking industry.
Close to 300 woodworking companies and 1,000 visitors attended the different CWMDA members’ showrooms, this time around coming from all over Canada, with a strong delegation from Quebec.
And visitors were not disappointed.
At a time when this industry, like most others, suffers from a labour shortage, WTD 2021 proved that the solutions are available now to help you grow your business.
Whether it is in the form of a completely automated robotic work cell or the pre-set, zero set-up, technology shown on the edgebanders being demonstrated, the key is that this type of equipment makes manufacturers less dependent on employees and operators that can then be directed to other tasks.
These solutions are complemented by an array of advanced software solutions and high-performance tooling.
The CWMDA wishes to thank all the visitors for attending, as well as its sponsors, industry and media partners for their participation and support.
The planning for the WTD 2022 edition has already begun and organizers promise the next edition will be even better.
