December 3, 2013 – In 2014, IIDEX Canada and Construct Canada will co-locate to create what they call North America’s largest annual exposition and conference focusing on the design, construction and management of real estate: The Buildings Show.

“We’re excited to bring these brands together as The Buildings Show, providing professionals with everything they need under one roof and a truly multidisciplinary experience, while still sustaining our separate brands and providing everyone’s target audiences with enhanced programming, a much broader diversification of products and multiple opportunities for suppliers to reach all professions in a cost-effective and strategic manner,” said Tracy Bowie, vice-president of IIDEX Canada.

Held December 3-5, 2014, the combined events will occupy the entire Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and will be held concurrently with seven other events: PM Expo, DesignTrends, HomeBuilder & Renovator Expo, Concrete Canada, The Toronto Real Estate Forum, Construct International and National GreenBuilding Conference.

“Co-locating these related shows and educational forums enables the creation of a very dynamic one-stop opportunity that will benefit all the professionals who play any role in designing, creating and managing the built environment,” said George Przybylowski, vice-president of show producer Informa Canada. “This mega-event will provide a robust marketplace for new products, broader education, and true inspiration.”
