North America’s largest medical technology conference, The MedTech Conference, will bring more than 1,400 companies and 3,000 delegates from 40 countries to Toronto from October 5‑7, 2020. This marks the first time the conference will be held outside of the United States.
“This is a strong vote of confidence from U.S. industry representatives and a critical opportunity to showcase Canada’s leadership in medical technology,” says Allan Edwards, Trade Commissioner and Industry Liaison (Medical Technologies) at Global Affairs Canada.
Canada has the eighth largest medical technology industry in the world, valued at US $6.8 billion and comprising more than 1,500 companies. Toronto sits at the midpoint of North America’s second largest life sciences corridor and is home to 16 of the world’s top 25 medical technology companies, making it a strategic choice for the 2020 MedTech Conference.
“This is an opportunity to highlight the tremendous things happening in the Canadian medtech marketplace—the world‑class R&D, advanced manufacturing, innovative start‑up scene—and to really show the world that Canada is one of the best places for medtech investment and research,” says Brian Lewis, President and CEO of MedTech Canada. “For companies looking to grow their business, explore partnerships or find investment opportunities, the level of access cannot be understated.”
October 5‑7, 2020
Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 255 Front St. W., Toronto, Ontario
Who should attend
Representatives from the medical technology industry, including CEOs, executive management, regulatory affairs, legal, healthcare compliance, sales and government relations.
Registration and more information
The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) will be on hand to make warm introductions to potential international partners and facilitate B2B meetings. Attendees can choose from more than 100 sessions and presentations delivered by close to 400 speakers.
“The conference agenda is packed with speeches and panels led by industry experts speaking about regulatory changes worldwide, new technological synergies, marketing strategies and any other important global developments,” adds Edwards.
Montreal‑based digital health firm Chronometriq attends MedTech every year to generate sales leads and meet partners. Founded in 2012, Chronometriq has developed technology platforms that improve access to healthcare, reduce wait times and help clinics operate more efficiently at lower cost.
Chronometriq is expanding in the U.S. thanks to its participation in the Canadian Technology Accelerator in Boston and its partnership with the U.S. healthcare data giant Ellkay. The company recently raised $20 million in series B funding to fuel growth in North America and beyond.
“We started out as five guys in a garage, so our growth has been about building partnerships with big companies,” says Rem Richard, Head of Growth and Co‑Founder at Chronometriq. “MedTech gives us the opportunity to talk to big players and showcase our products. It has a huge return on investment for us.”
“It’s great that they’re holding the next MedTech in Toronto. The quality of Canadian healthcare start‑ups is certainly at the international level,” says Richard. “MedTech is an excellent opportunity for international investors to spot promising Canadian companies. The event promises to be mutually beneficial for companies across Canada, the U.S. and beyond.”
MAP-Expo – Global Marketplace for Medicinal & Aromatic plants, is an international platform for the whole supply chain of MAPs. Due to the increasing demand for natural products, it is necessary to boost the production of MAPs. MAP-Expo is about establishing a network for current and future business, closing deals and sharing knowledge about the developments of MAPs.
In the coming years, medicinal and aromatic crops will be used more often to replace existing chemical and pharmaceutical solutions. One can think of commonly used medicines for humans and animals, crop protection and the food industry. A good way of upgrading your farm is to start growing, collecting and processing local (indigenous) medicinal and aromatic plants.
The MAP EXPO is the first international event that focuses on the whole production of plants: raw materials (plants, herbs, spices, teas, seaweed etc.), plant extracts (essential oils, resins, medical/aromatic contents), herbal consumer products (OTC drugs, cosmetics, supplements), and machinery to produce the herbal products.
In addition to the Expo, there will be a series of seminars. The seminars will be organized for global growers, traders and processors of aromatic and medicinal plants. For the complete seminar program, please check the website below regularly.
Register also for an international matchmaking event focused on making connections in the full supply chains of medicinal & aromatic plants (MAP). Matchmaking is organized by Enterprise Europe Network and is included in the entrance fee.
The Canadian Greenhouse Conference.
This is an annual conference, which takes places every year in October in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Every year about 30 Dutch companies from the greenhouse industry attend this conference to learn about new developments in the greenhouse industry, as well as take part in the many educational sessions offered. This is an excellent exhibition to meet Dutch distributors in Canada and learn more about the greenhouse industry as a whole.
The Canadian Greenhouse Conference is a not-for-profit corporation and Canada’s foremost event and connection point for commercial growers of crops produced in a controlled environment. The conference attracts growers from across North America, gathers experts from around the world and showcases innovative production techniques, research, products and technology.
With a steady record of growth, the CGC Board of Directors and Trade Fair Committee are committed to presenting a world-class industry event.
The Canadian Greenhouse Conference, with its registered not-for-profit status, uses any excess revenues from the annual conference to fund research, education and extension projects to support and improve the Canadian greenhouse industry.

MeatEx Canada, as the only specialized trade fair dedicated to the meat industry in Toronto, is offering up a complete range of meat products, meat-related machinery, equipment and technology, which meet the following needs: MEAT PRODUCING, MEAT PROCESSING, MEAT RETAILING, MEAT SERVICE
Today we’re announcing the postponement of MeatEx Canada 2020. The 1th edition, which was scheduled to take place from 23 - 25 July will now take place from 4 – 6 February 2021 at the Enercare Exhibition Centre.
The postponement comes amid ongoing international uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic which is sweeping the world, with containment measures restricting borders and affecting economies on the whole. After listening to concerns from our exhibitors, associations, and visitors, and we sympathies and understand that the current situation would limit the ability of many stakeholders to plan for the show at its original dates in July.
AT MeatEx Canada, thanks to our clear vision and well-defined strategies, everything revolves around the most valuable of all foodstuffs: MEAT. For three days, the most important ways the meat industry is moving into the future will be highlighted in this exhibition.
MeatEx is the confluence of industry and product. The whole chain of production, packaging, distribution, warehousing, and sales of red meat, poultry, seafood, and processed meat products will be presented in this fair. From high tech processing facilities to the newest packaging trends and food safety to the growing expectations of meat quality, the exhibitors will be showcasing innovative solutions to the demands of the meat-processing industry and the butchers’ trade.
Canada's slaughtering and meat-processing sector comprises livestock slaughter and carcass dressing, secondary processors that manufacture and package meat products for retail sale, and purveyors that prepare portion-ready cuts for hotel, restaurant and institutional food service. Products include fresh, chilled or frozen meats and edible offal (i.e. organ meats); cured meats; fresh and cooked sausage; canned meat preparations; animal oils and fats; and products such as bone and meat meal. Meat processing is one of Canada's largest single manufacturing industries and the largest employer in the food-manufacturing group. It was among the earliest food industries to develop mass production technologies geared toward international markets.
This exhibition will be the foremost innovation platform to bring together all key international players from the meat industry, retail trade and butcher's trade in Toronto.

Expo 2022 Floriade Almere will be the 7th International Horticultural Expo in the Netherlands. For six months, the attention to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be focused on the cities of the future. Visitors will have a unique and meaningful experience: during the expo they will be invited to ‘explore, touch and change’.
This expo will be the start of a new city district close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands called Almere. Almost everything that will be built for the exhibition will become a permanent part of the legacy of Almere. The structures will remain and become part of the community for future activities.
The Earth has seven billion inhabitants and growing, and more than fifty percent live in cities. By 2050, this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanisation, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’ infrastructure. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.
Within this context, four sub-themes are explored:
Green: Parks – vertical green on buildings and green structures make cities more attractive and resilient;
Food:Food habits, -production, -waste, -safety and food security solutions;
Health:The contribution of green structures to a healthy living environment as well as thecontribution made by green spaces to the physical and mental vitality of the citizens;
Energy:Finding solutions to address sustainable energy, heat stress and climate adaptation, as well as the contribution of green spaces for a liveable city.
Food production plays a major role in the green city of the future. The question is, what role can agriculture and horticulture play in accelerating this vision? The Netherlands is the second largest food producer worldwide, which is special given its small area for growing. This makes the Netherlands a hotspot for potential agricultural and horticultural innovations.
Floriade will open its doors for six months from: April-October 2022.
