Vancouver, B.C — Due to increased COVID cases, BUILDEX Vancouver has announced that it is postponing its in-person event to March 23 to 24, 2022, at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The event was previously slated to run from February 16 to 17.
“We’re providing a safe space where all members of the industry are welcome to do business together,” said Lisa Barnes, show director, in a press release.
All attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination, wear masks while indoor, and maintain social distancing when possible. Additional health measures and information will be provided closer to the show.
“Safety, security and an open environment for staff, exhibitors and participants is our highest priority,” said Barnes.
It is expected that around 250 exhibitors will be featured at the event, and participants can explore products, materials, technologies and services through various installations, innovation showcases and demonstrations.
“BC’s building industry is currently tackling significant challenges and opportunities: Increasing building performance, reducing embodied carbon, improving individual and community well-being, adopting technology, and solving a construction workforce crisis,” said James Wyatt, program manager.
In addition, participants will have access to over 65 seminars, panels, keynotes, workshops and demonstrations across 10 conference streams. Industry experts will lead various discussions and focus on three key themes: Future Work, Carbon Reduction & Well-Being, and Digitization & Industrialization. Select seminars and workshops from across the educational program are accredited for continuing education credits by AIBC, IDCEC, BC Housing and Passive House International.
