About the WTD

In 2020, the CWMDA members have decided to group together and create a new event that would offer a much broader display of specialized production machinery, without the space limitations and the costs related to a traditional trade show. The WTD takes full advantage of eight extensive showrooms located in Mississauga, Brampton and Cambridge, which allows to show a wide variety of machines and offer a higher number of live demos in a most suitable “Open House” formula. Our goal is to provide visitors with a closer, one-to-one experience, where applications and other aspects of a machinery project can be discussed with professionals.
