Atlantic Canada’s largest trade show and social event for the industry will return to Moncton in 2022. After a four-year hiatus due to the ongoing global pandemic, the Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Technology Show, more commonly referred to as the MEET Show, will be returning for the first time since 2018.
It will return to the Moncton Coliseum Complex in New Brunswick and run May 4 to 5. The two-day show will begin both days at 9 a.m. and run until 5 p.m. on the 4th and until 4 p.m. on the 5th. “Planning is well underway for this year’s event and it’s shaping up to be a great show. We heard from many of our exhibitors, and they are very eager to return and reconnect with industry members and do business again,” said Shawn Murphy, show manager for MEET. “We are on track to having a sold-out show floor with very limited spaces left. This is a one-of-a-kind event for Atlantic Canada to meet experts in the mechanical and electrical industries.”
Mechanical products will include plumbing, heating, hydronic heating, air conditioning, ventilation, refrigeration, drain cleaning, tools, pumps, valves, fittings, business, and design software, etc. And that’s just on the mechanical side, with another entire hall devoted to electrical. The show anticipates around 350 exhibitors, which is around normal numbers.
Back by popular demand
For the 2022 show, there will be plenty of educational sessions and seminars. The schedule is anticipated to be released within the coming weeks once all has been confirmed. The Innovation Awards will also be making a triumphant return with the winners expected to be announced sometime around mid-April.
In previous iterations of the trade show, on the evening of the first night of the show, an industry dinner has been held. This year, the show has decided not to hold a dinner.
MEET is produced by Master Promotions Ltd. in Moncton and sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH), IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) – Maritime Sections, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and ACME (Atlantic Canada Mechanical Exhibitors).
