January 22, 2013 – EBMag will be there for MCEE 2013–a four-shows-in-one meeting place for Canada’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) industries. This year’s tradeshow and conference takes place April 17-18, 2013, at Place Bonaventure in Montreal, Que., and expects to attract over 6,000 visitors.

“An extensive line-up of seminars covering the gamut of the mechanical and electrical industries, plus a record-breaking number of exhibitors makes MCEE 2013 the not-to-be-missed event this spring,” said organizers.

More than 350 exhibitors from across Canada and the United States are set to display products in plumbing, heating, hydronics (modern hot water heating), ventilation, electrical, lighting, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, electrical equipment, water treatment systems, tools, alarm systems, kitchen and bath fixtures, fire prevention; pipes, valves & fittings and software.

MCEE 2013 will spotlight “innovative designs, sustainable products, energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy”. Seminars will be presented in French unless otherwise indicated.
