CIPHEX plumbing, hydronics and HVACR event goes virtual

August 21, 2020  By Ground Water Canada

The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating will conduct a national online trade show and conference for plumbing, hydronics and HVACR. CIPHEX Virtual will take place from Nov. 2 to 27.

“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 of Wolseley Canada in an association newsletter.

“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,” said 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”.


Industry members can attend from almost anywhere, using whatever device they prefer. They can attend once, or multiple times throughout the four weeks that the virtual expo will be live.

Three special “live” (but still virtual) days, visitors and exhibitors can chat, video chat or email one another. Each day will have a different live four-hour period according to the different time zones around Canada to make it convenient and accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

Nov. 5  – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time
Nov. 12 – 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time
Nov. 19 – 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) Eastern Time

Attendee registration will open in late September. Details can be found at
