Canadian Concrete Expo draws largest number of attendees, exhibitors to date
Exhibitor space has grown by 50 percent compared to 2019 show
2020 Show Productions broke records in the number of attendees, the number of exhibitors, the amount of exhibit space, and the number of conferences at the 2020 Canadian Concrete Expo. Exhibitor space has grown by 50 percent compared to the 2019 show since the show's first year and the number of exhibitors has grown by 29 percent year over year.
Canadian Concrete Expo featured diverse products services, equipment, and technologies designed for the concrete and general construction markets, such as safety equipment, formworks, ready-mix suppliers, equipment dealers, trucks, loaders, mobile apps and curing solutions.
At the show, conference sessions and live stage presentations provided valuable operational and industry insights. Equipment demonstrations, which have been part of the trade show's DNA since year one, entertained and educated audience members.
New to the show in 2020 was the addition of evening networking events; the events included free food, games, prizes and even a magician. Funds raised by the games were donated to Homes First. Also new at the show, was the awarding of a $2,000 cash prize to this year's Concrete Photo Challenge winner. In the first year of rewarding people who work with concrete, Tilt Wall Ontario was drawn as the winner.
CCE is adding two new components to the show for 2021 that are designed to serve to very important markets within the concrete industry. CCE 2021 will feature an aggregates section and a masonry pavilion; the show will continue to offer its well-attended technology pavilion.
The show is also moving the show dates to Thursday and Friday. This gives people who fly into the show one more day at the office prior to the show.
