Woodworking Technology Days Machinery Showcase 2023
Hosted by the Canadian Woodworking Machinery Distributors Association (CWMDA), the 4th Woodworking Technology Days (WTD) event will be held from October 31 to November 4, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Saturday, 2:00 p.m.) across Mississauga and Brampton.
The CWMDA, representing major Canadian importers and distributors, organizes the WTD event. Instead of individual events in the fall, members come together for this joint showcase. This setup allows visitors to see multiple showrooms in a single trip. Attendees can view a wide range of equipment and watch demonstrations. Visitors can explore different rooms freely.
The woodworking industry faces challenges like skilled labor shortages and the need for adaptable production. This event aims to offer solutions to these challenges, presenting the latest technology and machinery.
