The Buildings Show Returns to Toronto

September 14, 2021 | By Logan Caswell

Daily seminar sessions and specific industry workshops will make up the majority of the educations programming.

The Buildings Show, a leading North American expo, networking, and educational event for the design, construction and property management industries returns in person to Toronto from December 1 – 3.

This year the three-day event will be hosted entirely in the South Building at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre, where visitors can explore new technology and innovations from four combined events: Construct Canada, PM Expo, HomeBuilder & Renovator Expo, and the World of Concrete Toronto Pavilion.

Daily seminar sessions and specific industry workshops will make up the majority of the educational programming.

Some of the sessions will include: Smart Car Pulling a Dump Truck?—Zero Carbon is More than HVAC Efficiency; Strategies for Overcoming the Labour Shortage Today; Leadership Skills for Managers; How to be a Team in Times of Change; A Guiding Path to Safe Air Quality Solutions—Post COVID Market; Smart Buildings—Evaluation Programs and Overview Essentials to Improve Building Performance; and many more.

Different pricing is available for individual sessions or super session passes, topic specific workshop passes, exhibit hall access passes, VIP passes and daily seminar passes. For a full list of details and pricing visit The Building Show website.

Leading up to the event, a Mini-Series of Webcasts sponsored by Procore are being offered online (registration required, accessible through thebuildingsshow.com). The four session topics include: Make the Most of Construction Technology; Owners Tell All—What’s It Like to Build on a Construction Platform; Planning for Performance; and How We Build Now – Future of Canadian Women in Construction.

Although more than 100 different exhibitors are expected at this year’s show, the future of face-to-face events is changing. A poll conducted by The Buildings Show suggests 78% of people would like virtual content for the long term, which should make for an interesting mix of hybrid events in future.

Yet, for 201 and with COVID-19 still a factor in our day to day lives, The Buildings Show has made it a top priority to ensure the event will be organized in accordance with official government and local authority guidelines, as well as any venue or location specific regulations.

The Buildings Show aims to deliver the highest levels of hygiene and safety at the event and has reassured potential attendees they will be in a safe and controlled environment.
