Last week, September 30th to October 3rd, BeneFACT® Consulting Group exhibited at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show at The International Centre in Mississauga. The show was even bigger than we had envisioned including 5 halls full of manufacturing and technology companies from Canada, US and beyond.
Having a presence at the show allowed us to touch base with current friends of BeneFACT and establish relationships with new ones. We were also able to educate companies on how the SR&ED program works, and what activities they engage in may be eligible.
Unfortunately, as we learned at PACKEX, there is still a large population of the business world that doesn’t know about SR&ED, and there are still misconceptions about what is actually eligible under the program. Many thought they didn’t qualify even though, after a few initial questions, it was discovered that there may be something there! If we can help even one company learn more about SR&ED, then we call that a success.
When not busy manning the booth and speaking about how great SR&ED is, we enjoyed walking the show floor and learning about some of the amazing technologies that Canadian companies are bringing to market. It is shows like CMTS that keep us grounded and tuned in to just how innovative our country really is.
