This program offers a framework to help the Canadian PE industry work with building industry stakeholders to develop relevant new products and applications that have a high likelihood of commercial success.

For 2016, we expect to double again at our new host venue, Sheridan College’s new conference centre in Oakville.

CPES2016 takes place April 19 and 20. Opportunities are available now to serve on our organizing committee and showcase your organization as a sponsor. For more information, please visit www.cpeia-acei.ca/symposium
