Montreal, QUE — Spring is upon us, which means rain and the return of the MCEE trade show. After a four-year absence, the trade show returns to Montreal from April 19 to 20 at the Montreal Convention Center. “During this major two-day event, the 6,000 expected visitors will have access to new products, nearly 400 exhibitors and 20 seminars on the latest technologies and industry issues,” said Pat Gramsch, trade show manager at the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH).
Produced by CIPH, the Corporation of Master Pipe Mechanics of Quebec (CMMTQ), the Corporation of Master Electricians of Quebec (CMEQ), and the Corporation des entreprises en traitement de l’air et du froid (CETAF), the MCEE trade show is Canada’s biggest mechanical, plumbing, HVAC/R, electrical and heating expo.
Seminars will cover various topics such as plumbing 201, calculator of an apartment building connection, the benefits of aerothermal heat pumps to reduce carbon emissions and increase building energy efficiency, what to do when responding to a power problem reported by a residential customer, and more. Offered free of charge to visitors to the MCEE Show, these conferences can meet continuing education obligations. Unless otherwise noted, all lectures are presented in French.
