The northern star: Canada's Woodworking Machinery and Supply Expo '91.


With a long list of exhibitors and a focus on current trends and technology, this year's WMS will shine brightly. Promising to provide attendees and exhibitors a chance to see the latest developments in woodworking machinery and supplies, Canada's largest woodworking industry show will also offer a glimpse of current trends in the Canadian woodworking industry.

The Woodworking Machinery and Supply Expo '91 slated for Oct. 18-20 in Toronto will feature more than 200 exhibitors from all over the world. "Our goal of having over 200 machinery and supply companies participating in WMS is well within reach," said Donna Wood, show manager for The Woodworking Machinery and Supply Expo '91 . "Exhibitors are coming from all parts of the globe including Germany, Italy, England, France, Yugoslavia and the United States."

Having the support of the Canadian Woodworking Machinery Distributor's Assn. (CWMDA), the Canadian Kitchen Cabinet Assn. (CKCA), the Ontario Furniture Manufacturer's Assn. (OFMA) and the Eumabois group of European woodworking associations, WMS will focus on competing in the world market community through training and technology. Peter Feindel, president of CWMDA, said, "In order to be able to grow through the '90s and enter the new century with renewed vigor, we must embrace the new technologies that are being made available to manufacturing and train our people to be able to make use of the innovations. Only then can we truly compete on a world scale and move on to new challenges."

In addition to attendees witnessing the latest developments in machinery and supplies, Conestoga College will coordinate a free seminar program focusing on current woodworking issues open to all show attendees.
