CSDA has been given a terrific opportunity to cosponsor and promote the first ever Canadian Concrete Expo (CCE), to be held February 7-8, 2018 at the International Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the only national trade show in Canada dedicated to the concrete construction industry and will have over 250 companies exhibiting in 200,000 square feet of space.
The show will serve as a valuable branding, marketing and sales opportunity to reach a targeted audience north of the U.S.-Canadian border. An audience that is seeking information about products and services, drawing comparisons and, in many cases, ready to make purchases.
As a cosponsor, CSDA is pleased to support and promote this new venture—one that is sure to be of great value to association members and prospects in Canada and beyond. CSDA will also be offering free attendee registration so that professionals from the concrete cutting, polishing, GPR imaging and selective demolition industries can check out all the show has to offer.
“Having a full-scale national show in Toronto dedicated to the Canadian concrete construction Industry will make CCE a cost-effective option for both exhibitors and attendees unable to travel to shows in the U.S. or abroad,” says CSDA Executive Director Patrick O’Brien. “We look forward to being part of this exciting new show.”
CCE will also feature site tours, product demonstrations, networking events and educational sessions focused on Canadian policies, standards, procedures, economy and environment.
Expo attendees will consist of contractors focused on concrete placement, finishing, flooring, sawing and drilling, restoration, repair, demolition and recycling, along with general contractors involved with all types of concrete work. Municipal, provincial and federal government representatives involved with procurement, engineering, construction and the maintenance of concrete structures will also be in attendance.
“CCE will be the only resource in Canada where you can source out new machinery and equipment from multiple manufacturers and dealers specific to your applications. Shop, talk, compare products and services with competitive suppliers. When multiple companies compete for business on the same show floor, the customer is in a great position,” says Stuart Galloway, president of CCE show organizers 20/20 Show Productions, Inc.
