“CIPH is always looking for new ways to provide even more value for exhibitors and visitors, so I’m pleased to announce that we are adding some exciting new programs next year,” says Si├ón Smith (Noble Corporation), Chairman of the Board of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH). “Our exhibitors are interested in reaching a diverse audience, including engineers, building managers, and home builders, in addition to our traditional audiences of contractors and wholesalers. The new events and programs at CIPHEX West 2016 offer specialized education and networking opportunities for these key industry members.”


“CIPH is making a significant investment in new programming at CIPHEX West, as part of our commitment to increase the return-on-investment for our exhibitors,” adds CIPH BC Region President Tim Main (Xylem Applied Water Systems). “Top quality programs attract the key decision-makers that exhibitors need to meet – and that’s exactly what we’re delivering in 2016.”



HVACR and Plumbing Design Forum NEW
Advanced training for heating and plumbing professionals
Seminars and workshops covering the latest heating and plumbing engineering/design topics and trends. Sessions in this new forum will be developed for heating and plumbing engineers in particular, but will be open to all visitors interested in more advanced training. 


Canadian Hydronics Conference FIRST TIME IN BC
Canada’s largest hydronics conference, presented by the Canadian Hydronics Council
Anchored by internationally recognized hydronics expert John Siegenthaler, the two-day conference will  provide the information contractors, wholesalers and engineers need to specify, install and maintain hydronic systems, expert insights into future trends in modern hot water heating and practical solutions to increase hydronic sales.  Launched at CIPHEX West 2014 (Calgary) the Conference draws contractors, wholesalers, engineers and home builders.  Again in 2016, the exhibit hall will include the Hydronics Alley, a show-within-a-show dedicated to the sector.


Executive Summit NEW
What keeps Canadian CEO’s up at night? This new by-invitation event will bring top executives from a variety of industries together for a thought-provoking dialogue. Human capital, Loonie woes and fast paced regulatory changes can create headaches in the Boardroom.  CIPH will bring in experts to provide their thoughts and get the conversation started. The Executive Summit will take place on November 2 (day 1 of the show).




New Product Showcase
Seeing new products remains the #1 reason people attend trade shows and the CIPHEX West New Product Showcase will provide a preview of the newest products and technologies available. A record 65 new products were showcased in the 2014 competition in the exhibit hall and online, with the best of them receiving innovation awards at the show.


Plumbing and HVACR Seminar Program 
Today’s contractors need to be on top of the latest product trends, codes and standards, technology, social media and more. This program will provide contractors, and those that supply them, with information and tools they can use right away to sell more, install and service more efficiently and be more profitable.
