The inaugural CANSTech – the Construction Technology and Innovation Trade Show – was held on November 20, 2018 at the Cunard Centre in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia.

CANSTech united exhibitors, sponsors and world-class speakers to showcase new technologies, upcoming trends and innovative products all under one roof. Attendees from our membership, government and supporting industry organizations were in the room to view, learn and make business connections!
