ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The theme for this years’ conference is Current Waves. It will increase visibility of Canada’s Atlantic region and highlight the manufacturing sector which is a very large contributor to the Shipbuilding and Offshore industries. CanWeld will bring together people from an extensive range of industry contributors such as educators, decision makers, influencers, suppliers and consultants. It will be a great opportunity to discuss issues around current trends and advances, welding and joining, health and safety, and so much more. Delegates attending the conference will be drawn from a wide range of industries including mining, oil and gas, pipelines, power generation, petrochemical, fabrication and construction, manufacturing, steel and shipbuilding, pulp and paper and others. CanWeld will highlight the manufacturing and energy sectors and, most importantly, be a platform to connect with industry professionals and leaders from all over Canada and worldwide.
