Trade shows and training
While I am at trade shows and industry events, I often ask contractors about what more we can do for them and what are some of the biggest challenges they face. The answers vary but one of the common themes always comes back to training. There are new products and new regulations constantly being introduced and it is difficult to stay on top of everything.
The CMPX (Canadian Mechanical & Plumbing Exposition) is coming up March 21-23 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This is Canada’s largest show and the place to be to learn about those new products and regulations that you are going to see later this year. There are 400 exhibitors and a full schedule of seminars from which to choose. Please register for the show at www.cmpxshow.com. Plus, we would love you to turn left at the top of the escalator to visit Plumbing & HVAC’s booth to say “Hi” and enter our draw for a 60” Sony Bravia TV!
Plumbing & HVAC has also introduced a new website designed to make your search for training easier. www.TrainingTrades.ca is a comprehensive website designed to promote all the industry training available to you in one spot.
We invite all associations, manufacturers, trainers, and wholesalers to promote their training free of charge on Trainingtrades.ca. Contractors will be able to search the website by keyword or category search, and they will also be able to use geolocation to find training near them. Contractors can register right on the site for their desired training.
Trainingtrades.ca is still in its early stages as we are trying to get more training opportunities up on the site. So please check back often or sign up for our training newsletter to be notified of upcoming training opportunities near you.
If you can’t make it to CMPX, give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you!
