Ms. Pike also likes, “the facilities great airport location and we look forward to presenting our new CMW in a state of the art facility.”

When asked Mr. Dan Cutrone, Director of Marketing, Canon Communications LLC why they chose the Toronto Congress Centre for their recently acquired events for June 21-23, 2011 he provided the following statement, “The Toronto Congress Centre is a key part of our strategy for producing a co-located event serving Canada’s advanced technology manufacturing industries. What’s more, the contiguous nature of the exhibit space at the facility is very conducive to our visitors seeing the products and services throughout the entire event rather than in just one of the shows.”
