Thank you to all who attended CANS 2023 Home Depot Pro De-Icer!

On Friday, April 14, CANS 2023 Home Depot Pro De-Icer marked industry’s kick-off to a busy construction season. And what a start to the season it was – more than 1,700 attendees gathered at the Halifax Convention Centre for a celebratory evening of exceptional fine dining, musical entertainment, and unparalleled networking opportunities.

Guests enjoyed their choice of poached lobster, roast chicken, pork loin, or vegan moussaka — yum! Not to mention an incredible selection of hors d’oeuvres, mussels, sweets and refreshments. Many memories were captured in our 360’ slow motion video booth, and attendees were able to reconnect away from the crowd in our dedicated lounge. A performance by musician Scott DeCoste capped off a busy evening for our guests.

Thank you to everyone involved in CANS 2023 De-Icer, from our attendees and sponsors to the event staff behind-the-scenes who helped us bring CANS biggest event of the year to life! What a way to kickstart the year – we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2023 holds for CANS Events!
