SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The long-running Expoplast trade show and conference, designed for the plastics industry, is now co-located with PACKEX Montreal for the packaging industry, ATX Montreal for automation, Design & Manufacturing Montreal covering design engineering and manufacturing needs, and PBS Montreal for powder and bulk solids. These combined events will bring thousands of engineers and executives to the Palais des Congres in Montreal next week, November 19-20, 2014. This biennial event returns to Montreal for the second time, after a successful launch in 2012.
UBM Canon is known for producing large co-located events, successful in providing resources that cross industry lines. Attendees of these cross-industry events consistently find that exhibitors who might officially be in another category, can also provide products and services they need. Since product manufacturers need packaging and perhaps automated methods, and packaging companies need to know what's new in plastics and automation, and automation companies need software, all benefit from each other at the co-located shows.
In addition to the suppliers in the exposition hall, conference sessions for the various industries are often attended by delegates from other industries as well, seeing the need to stay up to date with the technology. Conferences for this event include M2M (machine to machine) wireless communication for the factory floor and advances in 3D Printing.
In addition, there will be workshops on the future of the plastics industry, presented by the Society of Plastics Engineers, (SPE), along with packaging workshops and conference sessions on smart innovations in package design.
