Construct Canada 2012

The Construct Canada show in Toronto this year was a launching point for Plasti-Fab's interactive booth elements. A large touch screen monitor allowed visitors to select their own interests, information and videos, while also providing an "on-the-spot" solutions center for the Plasti-Fab team as they interacted with show attendees. Additionally, the iPad counter was a big hit with it's built in Newsletter sign up, web site viewing, project profile showcase, etc. To maintain our sustainability goals and reduce the amount of paper and take aways from the show, visitors to the booth could browse information at their leisure and email themselves the information they found interesting.

With our continued focus on insulation solutions, Plasti-Fab representatives Jonathan Newell and Francois Broussard gave How-To seminar presentations in the Green Building Demonstration Area once daily. Focusing on the Advantage ICF System, Francois built an ICF wall, complete with corners, rebar, and brick ledge, while Jonathan explained the benefits of Insulspan SIPs, past projects, and showed the audience the parts and pieces of a SIP.
