April 26, 2022 | By Doug Picklyk

CMPX returned in March of 2022 to downtown Toronto after being forced to cancel the 2020 event.

The Canadian Mechanical & Plumbing Expo (CMPX) successfully returned to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre March 23-35 with a strong showing following a four-year absence with the cancellation of the 2020 event due to the pandemic.

The show company has reported that the show received 16,059 registrants, more than 1,000 over 2018 numbers, and just under 9,000 people attended the event over the three days.

“You could feel the energy in the aisles,” said Sandy MacLeod, president/CEO of HRAI, in a post-show release. “We were thrilled to hear from so many industry leaders that they were seeing old and new customers at CMPX.”

A total of 2,899 exhibitor representatives spread out over the 68,000 sq. ft. in the North Hall of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for the show.

New on the show floor this year was the Podcast Hub, which hosted HVAC Know it All (Gary McCreadie), HVAC Jess (Jessica Bannister), Refrigeration Mentor (Trevor Matthews) and Plumber’s World.

“CMPX proved if planned and executed properly tradeshows will continue to be a key element to meet the marketing needs of exhibitors,” reported Ralph Suppa, president and general manager of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH).

CMPX will return in 2024.
