CMX-CIPHEX Show Filled with Action

TORONTO - One of the industry’s largest shows for mechanicals finished its 2010 run on a high note with increased attendance and solid sales on the show floor. The 19th biennial production of the CMX-CIPHEX Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, held March 25-27, 2010, attracted over 14,400 registrants, up 6.5 percent from the 2008 show. Attendees came from Canada, the United States, and countries as far afield as Australia and India.

Show committee chairman Ed Seaward of Union Gas attributed the performance of the show to the recovery underway in the Canadian market and the wealth of information the show offers. “CMX-CIPHEX is truly the showplace for the industry,” Seward said. “It’s a source for new products and trends, a place to come face-to-face with suppliers, and a fast, effective way to get solid industry updates and the latest information on innovations.”

Over 500 exhibitors took part in the show, many of them with new products that were displayed on the show floor and at the show’s website.

“We had one of the best shows ever,” said Tom Boutette, president of B&B Trade Distribution, a London-based company with locations across southwestern Ontario. “We’ve exhibited in the show for more than a decade and this was remarkable. We went into the show concentrating our efforts on alternative energies and new technology - things like geothermal, electrothermal, and solar water heating. We received an extremely high level of interest and it came from quality attendees who were clearly senior decision makers.”

The next CMX-CIPHEX will be held March 22-24, 2012.
