nullThere are two workshops you can participate in to experience the technology in the region firsthand and set your business up for success in an online world. You can learn about virtual reality training, robotics and Canada’s latest manufacturing co-op, MicroFactory, in the Venture13 Tech Zone. You can also take part in the cyber security workshop to learn about current threats, cyber defense, and disaster recovery.

Two plant tours are offered as a part of the manufacturing conference as well. The first is at Cameco, which is the largest Canadian supplier of uranium fuel for CANDU nuclear reactors. The second tour is at Graphic Packaging International, one of the largest manufacturers of paperboard and paper-based products.

Learn How To Attract the Future Workforce

The two keynote speakers at the manufacturing conference are diving deep into the coming skills revolution and how to attract and motivate Millennials. As your workforce’s face begins to change, Baby Boomers retire, and the younger generation is hired, you need to adjust your attraction and retention strategies to suit this shift. The speakers at the conference will get you started on how to update your hiring practices to better align with your future workforce.
