It’s a fact. People like to buy from people and companies they have met… and people are more likely to buy products they have seen in person. CIPH trade shows provide a unique, focused opportunity for manufacturers to meet face-to-face with buyers and decision-makers interested in new products and solutions.


Here’s a recap of the recent CMPX show as well as updates on CIPH shows coming up in the next 12 months.


CMPX 2018 – March 21, 22, 23, 2018 - Toronto

MEET 2018 – May 2, 3, 2018 - Moncton

CIPHEX West 2018 – November 7, 8, 2018 - Calgary

MCEE 2019 – April 24, 25, 2019 - Montreal


CMPX 2018

March 21, 22, 23, 2018

Metro Toronto Convention Centre


Attendance was up at last months’ CMPX trade show in Toronto. Special thanks to our wholesalers who organized a record number of buses to bring out of town contractors to the show from a record 43 locations throughout Ontario. Thank you to the participating wholesalers:


· Bardon Supplies Ltd.

· Desco Plumbing & Heating Supply Inc.

· EMCO Corporation

· McKeough Supply

· Noble Corporation

· Wolseley Canada


Here’s what some exhibitors said about the show:


“After not showing for a few years, Belanger was excited and happy to report that the customer response and attendance of key decisions makers was tremendous. We were able to showcase our full assortment and get feedback from all sectors (plumbers, showrooms, wholesalers and designers). We are already working on 2020. See you then.”

Harry Kandilas, General Manager, Bélanger


“The show was very good for us. We were able to meet with many of our customers (both contractors and wholesalers). There was good activity through most of the 3 days, with customers stopping in right until the end. Also, a pleasant surprise was the number of engineers who attended and visited our booth. We will be back again.”

John Goshulak, P.Eng., Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Weil-McLain Canada Sales Inc.


"The CMPX Show was a resounding success for us this year as always. The diverse mix of visitors and a consistently strong attendance are why we continue to use CMPX as a key strategic venue for launching new products into the Canadian market. The opportunity to connect and interact with the installers in particular is one which cannot be understated..."

Michael Pinet, Director of Marketing, OS&B


The CMPX exposition was once again a unique opportunity for us to feature our Company’s offering to a choice clientele composed of key industry player and decision makers. A wide variety of industry representation from Trade apprentices to major mechanical Contractors, Utilities and Maintenance, Facilities, etc. Once again this year, CMPX exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance and the quality of the participants. Great Job CIPH!"
