Green light for CIPHEX West

The industry looks to be heading to Western Canada this fall for the first tradeshow scheduled to run since the pandemic first came to North America. The CIPHEX West tradeshow and conference is set to take place November 3-4, 2021.

Western Canada’s largest tradeshow for plumbing, hydronics, HVAC/R and water treatment, the event presents an opportunity for industry-related decision-makers to look at new products, technology, and solutions.

The two-day tradeshow will be at the Pacific Coliseum at the PNE in Vancouver, British Columbia. A virtual event was held in November 2020 to replace the in-person event.

“The Province of British Columbia has been very successful in terms of flattening the curve with respect to COVID-19,” stated Andrew Dyck, CIPH chairman of the board and vice president of Barclay Sales. “However, the CIPH Board of Directors felt that postponing the tradeshow for a year ensures that the institute is doing its part to protect the health and safety of our exhibitors and visitors and respecting the mandate from the BC Ministry of Health.”

The show features a product showcase and competition where new products will be featured, and a special industry jury will select the “most innovative new products” broken down into 11 categories. CIPHEX West will also include seminars, live product demonstrations, prizes, giveaways, and the chance to network.

More than 200 exhibitors from across North America are usually at the event. Currently, exhibitor registration remains open for the 2021 event.

The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) organizes the event, which runs every two years. For more information, please visit
