CCE returns to February
By Adam FreillConcrete Construction
After moving its dates due to the pandemic, the 2023 edition of Canada’s national concrete show returns to its traditional timing.
The Canadian Concrete Expo (CCE), Canada’s national trade show for the concrete construction industry, returns to the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., this February 16 and 17. More than 7,000 people are expected to attend this fifth edition of the national event, where they will have the opportunity to connect with over 300 exhibitors and participate in the event’s 30-plus conference sessions, presentations and demonstrations.
New technology that’s likely to garner significant attention includes the printing of a full-scale 3-D concrete structure – the first to be printed live and indoors in North America – as Nidus3D will have its system in full operation on both days of the show. And don’t forget to stick around after the close of Day 1, as CCE will host a networking event for all exhibitors and attendees featuring food, entertainment and special guests Georges St. Pierre and P.J. Stock.
Stuart Galloway, president of the Canadian Concrete Expo, describes the event as an ideal environment to connect with suppliers, as well as source new suppliers, find business solutions and build partnerships.
“Nearly 4,000 industry professionals attended CCE 2022 despite being in the height of the construction season and weather that was ideal for construction crews and pouring concrete. Business and sales on the show floor were brisk,” he stated. “After three years, we are pleased to have CCE back into its February time slot and are looking forward to providing the best industry event in Canada for the construction industry. The trade show floor at CCE 2023 will be the largest to date.”
The 2023 show is set to take place at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Rd. in Mississauga, Ont. Show hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 16, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 17.
Pre-registration is now open, and anyone registering prior to February 15 will qualify to save half off the door admission prices. For more information about the show, or to register, visit www.canadianconcreteexpo.com.
