The 27th annual Construct Canada will be held December 2 to 4 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). The tradeshow is a major component of The Buildings Show—one of the continent’s largest exposition, networking, and educational events for the design, construction, and real estate communities.
Construct Canada is held concurrently with the PM [Property Management] Expo, HomeBuilder & Renovator Expo, and the World of Concrete Pavilion in the centre’s South Building, while IIDEX Canada takes place in the North Building. It also runs simultaneously with the Real Estate Forum Toronto.
This year, more than 30,000 design/construction, building operations, and real-estate professionals from around the world are expected to participate. Approximately 1600 exhibits have been planned (including over 100 from outside the country), bringing together the latest innovations with respect to the built environment’s products, technologies, best practices, and applications.
Beyond these exhibitors, the event offers numerous educational and networking programs, along with keynote speakers, competitions, tours, and discussion roundtables. New additions this year include national summits on healthcare and office design, and various awards programs. In total, more than 350 seminars and demonstrations will comprise the show’s continuing education component, with many sessions offering credits for programs offered by groups like Building Owners and Managers Institute (BOMI), Ontario Building Envelope Council (OBEC), and Ontario Association of Architects (OAA).
Construction Canada will also be part of the show. In addition to being at Booth #720 on the Expo Hall’s show floor, the magazine is once again co-sponsoring the Building Envelope Solutions technical stream—a series of seminars examining diverse aspects of exterior enclosures. From continuous insulation (ci) strategies and masonry retrofits, and from commissioning to aspects of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, these sessions are led by some of the top experts in the North American building community. For a closer look at these seminars and panels, check out our October issue, coming later this week to mailboxes and online.
The event, run by Informa Canada, offers free registration is available until November 17. Visit www.thebuildingsshow.com for more information.
