Given the uncertainties facing our industry in 2020 due to COVID-19, The Buildings Show and BUILDEX Alberta are coming together to provide a national digital platform that virtually connects more than 70,000 design, construction and real estate professionals across Canada at Buildings Week, November 30 – December 4. Powered by Buildings Canada and Informa Connect, Buildings Week provides opportunities for generating new business, continuing professional education, and reconnecting with peers to support the growth and development of our industry now and in the future.
The virtual event experience comprised of The Buildings Show | Construct Canada, PM Expo, HomeBuilder and Renovator Expo, World of Concrete Toronto Pavilion, and BUILDEX Alberta, offers everything our stakeholders have come to rely on from our face-to-face events, plus innovative features not possible from the in-person show.
Attendees can explore virtual booths and an online marketplace to discover leading product innovations, learn about technical specifications, watch live product demonstrations, connect with clients and colleagues, and much more. While the delivery has changed, the quality is the same. Attendees can also continue to join interactive panel discussions, hear from industry thought leaders and follow or get involved in the discussion by using audience polls, speaker Q&As, and group chats. There will be a mixture of live, prerecorded and on-demand content from across the industry and now for the first time, across the nation. Over 100 professionally accredited educational seminars, virtual panels, technical presentations, keynote sessions and professional development workshops will now be offered online.
“The online educational program will deliver the same high-quality content with essential solutions, best practices, case studies, and technical knowledge from a faculty of experienced industry professionals. Attendees will be able to fulfill their continuing education requirements with a wide selection of sessions”, said Teresa Domingues Baker, director of programming, Informa Connect.
Registration to the digital platform will open shortly and is free for industry trade professionals. The early bird deadline for discounted Education Programming expires Friday, November 13, 2020.
