Thanks to all who attended CANS 2024 Home Depot Pro De-Icer

On Friday, April 19, CANS 2024 Home Depot Pro De-Icer marked industry’s kick-off to a busy construction season. The full spectrum of Nova Scotia’s construction industry came out to celebrate with a record turnout — more than 1,800 attendees were registered! Throughout the evening, industry professionals enjoyed exceptional fine dining, lively sponsorship activations, musical entertainment and unparalleled networking opportunities at the Halifax Convention Centre.

Guests enjoyed delicious meals of steamed lobster, roast chicken and pork loin or vegan roasted cauliflower steak! Not to mention an incredible selection of hors d’oeuvres, sweets and refreshments. It was a fun-filled night as attendees networked and built new industry connections while enjoying several engaging activations. A performance by musicians Andrew Doyle and Ed Burke ended the busy evening with a bang.

Thank you to everyone involved in CANS 2024 De-Icer who helped bring CANS biggest event of the year to life, from our attendees and sponsors to the event staff working their magic behind the scenes. This was our largest De-Icer ever and we can’t wait to see what 2024 has in store for our industry!
