Crane and Hoist Canada

German trade show coming to Canada

February 27, 2017  By Kevin Cunningham

A Canadian version of the CeMAT trade show will make its debut in Ontario this fall.

CeMAT Canada is set for Sept. 25-28 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., said a news release from Deutsche Messe AG, which organizes the biennial CeMAT in Hannover, Germany, as well as other CeMAT shows around the world.

CeMAT shows focus on the intralogistics industries and supply chain management. However, cranes and other lifting equipment are well represented. At the 2016 CeMAT in Hannover, for example, exhibitors included the likes of J.D. Neuhaus, Columbus McKinnon, Jaso Industrial Cranes, JMG Cranes S.r.L., L&H Hoists, Manitou Group, and Optim Crane. Among the cranes represented were bridge canes, cantilever cranes, jib cranes, container handling cranes, gantry cranes, girder cranes, pick and carry cranes, truck cranes, industrial mobile cranes, and crane accessories.

The Canadian show runs parallel to the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show taking place on the same dates, also at the International Centre, which is right next to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.


The biennial CMTS attracts 700 exhibitors and 9,000 visitors, the release noted. Produced by SME — the Society of Manufacturing Engineers — CMTS “showcases innovations in machine tools, tooling, metal forming and fabricating, and advanced manufacturing applications.”

Four other topics from the Hannover Messe portfolio will join CeMAT Canada: industrial automation; MDA (power transmission and fluid technology); ComVac (compressed air and vacuum technology); and parts2clean (parts and surface cleaning).

“Our trade fairs complement the topics at CMTS perfectly,” the release quoted Krister Sandvoss, global director of CeMAT at Deutsche Messe AG. “We offer our customers a premium opportunity to enter the Canadian market. Together with SME we will organize the leading industrial event in Canada.”
