Estimating Conference - Project Procurement and Strategies - 2nd Edition -

Vancouver, British Columbia - June 3rd to 5th, 2014

Would you like to turn your estimating efforts into a sales tool?  Would you like to improve the accuracy of your estimating process?  Would you like a better analysis of your risk during the estimating process?  Would you like to improve your success rate in project procurement?  We are sure that your answer to all four questions is a resounding YES! 


The Canadian Mechanical Contracting Education Foundation (CMCEF) is pleased to announce that it will hold the “2014 Estimating – Project Procurement and Strategies – 2nd Edition” conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, June 3-5, 2014, at the Executive Hotel- Burnaby.  We have labeled it as the “2nd Edition” as this conference was recently held in Toronto this past November.  Evaluations were excellent and due to the unique target audience, those responsible for project procurement, we felt that a second offering was essential as soon as possible.  Please note this is not a seminar dealing with quantity survey and pricing.  This seminar deals with the estimating process, and includes Bid/No Bid decision making, writing a winning Proposal, developing a comprehensive Final Summary and an opportunity to make a sales presentation to an actual customer.


A few important highlights include: 

·         The conference is limited to 30 participants so be sure to register early. 

·         A hotel room block has been reserved.  The cut-off date is April 30th.   

·         Early Bird pricing has been set for the conference with a cut-off date of April 30th.    By registering early you can save $200 per person


For further information please contact Tania Johnston, CMCEF Executive Director, at 613-232-5169.
