MEET 2016 organizers hoping to top attendance record
By Doug PicklykHPAC General
This spring marks the return of the MEET Show (Mechanical Electrical Electronic Technology Show), taking place May 18 and 19 at the Moncton Coliseum Complex in Moncton, NB. Held biennially, the event brings together mechanical and electrical companies from throughout Canada and the U.S., showcasing the latest in products and services.
MEET is the second largest industry event of its type in Canada and the largest trade event east of Montreal. The 2014 show attracted more than 6200 buyers – the show’s highest attendance in over two decades. An even larger crowd is expected for the 2016 show, including contractors, developers, engineers, tradespeople, and just about anybody else involved in the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors.
The 2016 edition of the show will see the return of the MEET Innovation Awards. These awards recognize innovative products from exhibiting companies, and one award from each of the show’s four sponsoring associations will be presented. The event, which will also feature an Industry Dinner and a comprehensive seminar program, is sponsored by IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) – Maritime Sections, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC), and ACME (Atlantic Canada Mechanical Exhibitors).
