LED Lighting and Control Exposition a great success
EAM
The first ever LED lighting and Control Exposition held in Winnipeg November 4th at the Fairmont Hotel sponsored by the Electrical Association of Manitoba, was considered an outstanding success. Over 350 attendees from all sectors of the electrical industry along with representation from the architectural and engineering professions were in attendance. Attendees came from as far away as Thunder Bay.

The seminars held throughout the day were excellent, with all seminars enjoying a large attendance. Many attendees stayed for the entire day to meet with exhibitors and attend all of the seminars.

The show floor was quite busy throughout the day and kept exhibitors extremely busy, interacting with attendees. The show featured 28 leading manufacturers in the North American LED Lighting and Control industry, showing off their products.

Attendees left the show with lots of information and a desire to learn more in the ever changing world of LED.

The next LED Lighting and Control Exposition will be held in 2016.

Winnipeg Free Press
The Manitoba Paddling Association has been very successful at building up a large contingent of competitive kayak and canoe paddlers in Manitoba. For instance, Canada had about 50 competitors at a recent world championship, and more than 40 of them were from Manitoba. In addition to its strong standing in the sport, the MPA is also becoming a leader in the community when it comes to alternative energy. The association installed geothermal systems at its two facilities — one in Winnipeg and one in Selkirk — a few years ago.
