Plans are well underway for the CIPHEX West trade show, which will return to Vancouver a year from now, announced the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating, which organizes the event every two years.
Exhibit sales opened in early October to CIPH member companies that exhibited at the 2018 show in Calgary. Since then, more than 30 per cent of exhibit space at next year’s event, to be held Nov. 4-5, 2020, has been reserved and sales are now open to all members and non-members, reported CIPH show manager Elizabeth McCullough.
To date, about 50 companies have registered to exhibit their latest products and technologies. The show will have a new location for 2020, at the Coliseum at the Pacific National Exhibition. Parking will be free for all visitors and exhibitors.
Organizers are planning a number of seminars and workshops during the event. Exhibitors that book space by Dec. 1 will have the opportunity to submit presentation proposals. The Canadian Hydronics Council will present specialized hydronic heating and cooling sessions.
Manufacturers will compete for Product of the Year and other awards with their latest technologies in the New Product Showcase and Competition.
The event will run Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
