CMPX Show Coming to Toronto in March

Registration is now open for CMPX 2016, Canada’s national HVACR and plumbing show, which will take place March 16–18, 2016. More than 500 exhibitors will fill the 200,000-sq-ft Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building with new products that showcase the latest technology in the industry.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Bill MacGowen of Cisco Systems. MacGowen will be talking about “The Internet of Things—the Opportunities and Impact of Connected HVACR Equipment and Devices” on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. The seminar will focus on the billions of connected HVACR devices currently used in the industry and how it presents both challenges and opportunities for the world of HVACR. MacGowan is a Vertical Solutions Architect for Cisco’s Smart Connect Real Estate and Smart Connected Communities Business Team in Canada. Keynote speakers will talk during breakfast each day of the event.

Attendees should check out the HRAI Skills Centre while at the show. The Centre will be a hub where students can drop in and not only test their skills but perform in competitions to gauge their skills against others. On March 16, 2016 during the “Secondary School Heating System Technician Competition,” students from Ontario secondary schools will compete for prizes and bragging rights. The Challenge provides students currently enrolled in a related secondary school technical program with an opportunity to showcase their HVAC proficiency in practical applications (basic service and maintenance), theoretical understanding, basic technical knowledge (multiple choice and short answer), as well as through a mock job interview. There will be a competition on March 17 and March 18, as well.

For attendees interested in classes while at the conference, the show will feature  a variety of seminars throughout the event. Highlights include “Breaking Out Of Your Current Building Automation System” on March 16 and “Commissioning and Installation Practices” on March 17. All seminars are sponsored by ASHRAE. Course registration does not include CMPX show registration.
