Sixth annual CCE returns to the GTA this February 14 and 15 with concrete demos, training, networking, and more.
Canada’s national trade show dedicated to the concrete, construction and aggregates industries, the Canadian Concrete Expo (CCE) will return for its sixth year on February 14 and 15, 2024, and we are looking forward to seeing you there. Set to take place at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., this year’s event has grown once again and will feature a 300,000 square foot exhibition floor with more than 350 national and international exhibitors, educational seminars, and product demonstrations.
“If people have not been to the show, since its early years, we’ve grown 350 per cent from the first year that we did the show,” says CCE president Stuart Galloway. “The sheer volume of exhibitors, and the product, service and equipment selection, has grown exponentially. There’s so much more to see.”
Expected to attract in excess of 8,000 industry attendees, the expo has a slate of more than 40 conference sessions, live demonstrations and stage presentations that will provide attendees the chance to experience the latest technology and equipment, and access key industry insights.
“We know that for people to make the trek, let’s say from Eastern or Western Canada, and even the Southern or Northern United States, we’ve got to provide some education for them as well,” says Galloway. “They’re looking for a multi-multifaceted event that not only provides them exhibitors, but where they can get education and networking at the same time. So, we’ve really expanded our sessions, and we believe the quality of our conference sessions is the best it’s ever been.”
Another major aspect of the show that is expected to attract attention of attendees will be the large equipment demonstrations. These live indoor pours will showcase the newest innovations the industry has to offer, plus innovations in decking, forming, equipment, and much more.
“We brought back our large equipment demos, which are indoor. We’ve got live concrete pours and are bringing in larger equipment that we can demo inside, plus multiple product presentations on our main stage and Hall 2,” says Galloway. “We’re really trying to focus on growth in those areas as well to provide a better experience and better value for attendees.”
CCE provides an environment to source new suppliers, reconnect with industry contacts, get hands-on with the latest equipment, and take advantage of exclusive show offers. For those looking to expand their industry knowledge or skills, educational sessions are available to help maintain and develop a greater skillset in Canada’s diverse and evolving concrete construction industry.
The exposition will be located at the International Centre in Mississauga, only five minutes from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. Registration for CCE 2024 is now open. Register in advance to save 50 per cent on the admission fees.
