The Canadian Mechanical and Plumbing Exposition 2014 will take place March 19 to 21 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The semi-annual event is one of North America’s largest trade shows for the mechanical industry and regularly attracts upwards of 8,000 attendees including plumbing, HVACR and mechanical contractors, installers, technicians, wholesalers, engineers, architects, building managers, renovators, specifiers, government personnel, manufacturers reps, retailers, teachers and students.
Show committee chair Gerry Cellucci says more than 500 exhibitors will represent the products, innovations, applications and information that define today’s mechanical contracting industry.
“There are plenty of new products, a new Emerging Technologies Centre, and the show’s popular Learning Forum – the place for a solid line up of programs on the latest trends, the newest applications and up-to-the-minute regulations,” he said.
Twenty unique learning forum sessions will cover topics ranging from smart controls and code updates to radiant heating and cooling, and from converting prospects to clients to social media and internet marketing.
Cellucci says the learning forum and new product showcase illustrate the show’s focus and diversity. “We’ll cover everything from energy management incentives to government regulations,” he said. “This show is unique because it fully represents the industry and we continue to try to increase the value through our attendee and floor space mix.”
Using social media and email blasts, show organizers will share information about the New Products Showcase, encouraging both vendors and attendees to participate.
