CIPH Announces Postponement of CIPHEX West to November 2021... (posted June 2020)

The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) has announced that the CIPHEX West trade show is postponed. The two-day trade show and conference will now take place November 3 & 4, 2021 at the Pacific Coliseum at the PNE in Vancouver, British Columbia. CIPHEX West is the largest event for the plumbing, hydronics, HVACR and water treatment industries in Western Canada.  

“The Province of British Columbia has been very successful in terms of flattening the curve with respect to COVID-19,” stated CIPH Chairman of the Board Andrew Dyck (Barclay Sales), “however the CIPH Board of Directors felt that postponing the trade show for a year ensures that the Institute is doing its part to protect the health and safety of our exhibitors and visitors and respecting the mandate from the BC Ministry of Health”. 

“We are pleased to announce that there will be a virtual event in November 2020,” added Show Committee Chairman Norm Bajwa (Bartle & Gibson). “The CIPHEX West team and Show Committee are working on the details, but we are committed to providing brand and product exposure for our exhibitors as well as an education and training program for contractors, wholesalers, engineers and other industry members”. 

The virtual event is expected to include eBooths with company and product information for exhibitors as well as webinars on technical and business topics presented by industry experts. More details will be available over the next few months.
