Toronto, ON—It has been 19 months since the industry has been able to gather for in-person events. The wait is almost over. While the country isn’t out of the woods just yet, things are slowly starting to return to normal and with that comes tradeshows.
The Buildings Show will return to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in 2021. From Dec. 1 to 3, industry professionals will be able to participate in educational sessions, product showcases, and other networking opportunities. Educational sessions will be available online and in-person with seminars, panels, and roundtables. Conference hours for the show will be from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. on Dec. 1 and 2. Exhibit hours will be 9:30 till 5 p.m. on Dec. 1 and 2, and from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m. on Dec. 3. Parking is available in and near the venue.
There is a jam-packed educational seminar program for the 2021 show, which will include online sessions leading up to the event. A full list can be found on the Buildings Show website.
There is a registration fee to attend, with discounts available prior to Nov. 12. Proof of vaccination will be required to attend the event. In addition, a series of health and safety guidelines will be in place, including non-contact registration, physical distancing, mask-wearing, and screenings.
Moving forward, most attendees of previous shows are wanting to return to face-to-face events for the long term (90 per cent), while 78 per cent of attendees would also to like to continue to see virtual content. “The future of our building, construction, and property management events in Canada will be hybrid,” reports the Buildings Show. “We have many opportunities available to our partners that will ensure you are one of the first to engage with our audience before our event even begins.” A full list of exhibitors for the 2021 iteration of the show is available on the tradeshow’s website.
