Vancouver show combined with builder’s event


CIPHEX West, the major plumbing and mechanical show for Western Canada, will co-locate with BuildEx Express Vancouver when it takes place in November.

“Co-locating with BuildEx Express gives visitors who attend CIPHEX West Nov. 3 the opportunity to see 100 extra exhibits of products and technologies for building design, management and renovation,” reported Elizabeth McCullough, general manager of trade shows for the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH). “For our exhibitors, this means an additional audience of key decision-makers involved in construction, property management and design will be at CIPHEX West that day.”

“CIPHEX West has very successfully co-located with BuildEx Calgary, but this marks the first co-location in B.C.,” added CIPH president and general manager Ralph Suppa, “It allows us to provide significant added value for our exhibitors and visitors.”

“The success we experienced in Calgary is a testament to how well collaboration and partnerships in the building industry can work,” added Paul Maryschak, BuildEx senior show director.

Produced by CIPH, CIPHEX West is the largest heating and plumbing industry event in Western Canada. The two-day trade show and conference will take place Nov. 2-3 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Produced by Informa, BuildEx Express is an exclusive one-day event for the construction, property management, interior design and architecture industries and will take place Nov. 3, also at the convention centre.
