The Buildings Show, one of North America’s largest expositions for the design/construction industry, makes its annual return to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from November 29 to December 1.

The show comprises Construct Canada, Property Management (PM) Expo, HomeBuilder and Renovation Expo, the World of Concrete Pavilion, and IIDEX Canada. More than 1600 Canadian, U.S., and international exhibits will showcase the latest innovations in the building world.

Produced by Informa Exhibitions, the three-day event attracts around 30,500 design, architecture, construction, and real-estate professionals. In addition to networking opportunities and product demonstrations, participants can choose from over 350 seminars—earning continuing education credits in the process—led by industry experts. Topics range from architectural and interior design to building codes and accessibility.

Show organizers have also lined-up summits, roundtables, and workshops where attendees get the opportunity to dig deeper into issues affecting their profession. IIDEX Canada is organizing a National Summit on Passive House on November 29 (8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) at the North Building. On the same day, Construct Canada will conduct an architectural roundtable on “Cities and Densification: Weaving Our New Urban Fabric” in the South Building from 8 to 10 a.m.

Keynote speakers will offer their insights on interior design and architecture. Rick Hansen, a three-time Paralympic gold medalist, is slated to present on “Removing Barriers and Unleashing Potential” on November 29 at 10 a.m. in the KAÄJENGA Keynote Theatre.

Construction Canada is the co-sponsor of the Building Envelope Solutions program stream, which includes sessions such as:

  • “Biophilic Design and Resilient Flooring;”
  • “Energy Retrofit Options for Single Glazed Buildings;” and
  • “Air and Water Barriers: How to Specify, Detail, Construct and Inspect for Success.”

Representatives from the magazine will be on the show floor at Booth #720.

The November issue also has a detailed preview of the show.
