The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) has launched CIPHEX Virtual, Canada's online trade show and conference for plumbing, hydronics and HVACR. CIPHEX Virtual will take place Nov. 2–27, 2020.
"We look forward to getting back to face-to-face events in 2021 and beyond, but CIPHEX Virtual gives exhibitors an incredibly cost-effective way to connect with buyers and decision-makers looking for new products, technologies and solutions now," said CIPH Chair Gail Kaufman (Wolseley Canada).
"The CIPHEX Virtual experience will include all the key elements of a physical event in a new digital format including exhibits, new products, webinars, prize draws and more," added Ralph Suppa, CIPH's president and general manager. "Exhibitors will be able to engage with a national audience of contractors, wholesalers, engineers, builders, renovators, designers, general contractors, government and municipalities, utilities and other industry buyers and decision-makers looking for new products, new technologies and new solutions."
Value and convenience are critical. Industry members attending CIPHEX Virtual can do so from almost anywhere, using whatever device they prefer. There are also no travel costs and the time commitments are flexible. Attendees can attend once, or multiple times throughout the four weeks that the virtual expo will be live.
Still virtual, on the following three days, visitors and exhibitors can chat, video chat or email "live." Each day will have a different live time (four-hour period) according to the different time zones around Canada to make it convenient and accessible to as wide an audience as possible:
A full program of webinars will be offered throughout the four weeks of CIPHEX Virtual. The virtual format will allow CIPH to offer a wide selection of presentations. Attendee registration will open in late September. Exhibitor information is available through CIPH: www.ciph.com/cvirtual.
