The Canadian Mechanical and Plumbing Expo has been postponed due to concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic. The Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) and the Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) released a joint statement March 13 announcing that CMPX 2020, scheduled for March 25-27, would be put on hold.
The CIPH Gala in support of Habitat for Humanity, scheduled for March 24, has also been postponed.
This comes on the heels on several cancellations around the world including popular sporting events and concerts. Flights have been disrupted, schools closed, and the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. All of which rolled out in a short period of time.
The board of directors and senior business leaders of both CIPH and HRAI have been monitoring the events regularly with members, conference attendees and exhibitors.
At this point, new dates have not been established for CMPX or the Habitat Gala.
