Conference Overview

Named after the 14th Governor General of Canada, the historic Delta Bessborough will play host to the 54th Annual TIAC Conference. Nestled amongst five acres of gardens on the bank of the South Saskatchewan River, the Castle on the River features several restaurants boasting award-winning chefs, Damara Say Spa and Aesthetics, swimming pools and a sundeck, as well as a newly renovated gym complete with whirlpool, sauna and steam room.

The 2016 Conference program will feature timely presentations by industry experts and leaders, business meetings where you can engage in sector-specific discussions and networking opportunities to connect with friends new and old.

The Conference will kick-off on the Saturday evening with the Manufacturers and Distributors Reception.

Sunday’s program will feature several invited speakers, as well as the contractor, manufacturer and distributor breakout sessions. The spousal/family programs will also be running this day.

Monday morning will include more presentations and TIAC’s Annual General Meeting, followed by TIAC’s traditional golf tournament. Located on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation lands, the Dakota Dunes Golf Links has been rated Saskatchewan’s “Top Ranked Public Courses” by SCORE Golf Magazine. The course laid spaciously through natural sand dune formations, and indigenous prairie grasses. Undulating fairways, large greens, and natural blow-out bunkers are all part of this unique golf experience. Five tee decks on every hole provide challenge and enjoyment for golfers of any skill level. Dakota Dunes Golf Links offers the finest conditions in the province, and is a must-play for golf enthusiasts.

Monday evening is a night off and delegates are encouraged to explore the Paris of the Prairies.

As we reach Tuesday, the final day of the Conference, join us for the final morning of presentations, including a sneak-peak at the 2017 Conference program scheduled for August 23 to 26 in Toronto.

The Conference will be wrapped up at the President’s Dinner and Dance.

Coleman explores the pros and cons of selling to a third-party, employees, or family. After the presentation, you will know the common pitfalls that await you and how to avoid them, learn where to find potential buyers, and understand why strategic buyers will pay premium prices. As a potential buyer you will get great insight into what to look for and what to avoid.

10:15 am – 12:00 pm
3E Plus® and Its Use in Performing Energy Appraisals
3E Plus® was written by the North American Insulation Manufacturers’ Association (NAIMA) for use in calculating heat loss or heat gain from both flat and cylindrical insulated surfaces. While it only simulates one-dimension (as opposed to two- or three-dimensions) and steady-state conditions (as opposed to transient conditions), it is very useful for the majority of thermal insulation applications. In fact, it has become the standard for industry and government groups, in both Canada and the US, to use in evaluating the potential for energy, environmental, and economic savings without and with mechanical insulation on pipe, equipment, and valves. The presenter will demonstrate the enormous savings potential of mechanical insulation on both high and low temperature applications while emphasizing that there is always a triple benefit: energy, environment and economic. He will use typical applications where mechanical insulation is often omitted or ignored and which offer large savings potential.
Gordon H. Hart

Canadian Light Source: The Canadian Light Source is Canada’s national centre for synchrotron research and a global centre of excellence in synchrotron science and its applications. The synchrotron is one of the largest science projects in Canadian history.

What’s a synchrotron? A synchrotron is a source of brilliant light that enables scientists to study the microstructure and chemical properties of materials. Extremely bright synchrotron light is produced by using radio frequency waves and powerful magnets to accelerate electrons close to the speed of light.

Prairie Lily Riverboat Cruise: Offering a unique view of the city, these hour-long cruises travel under four of Saskatoon’s nine bridges. The tour commentary will share information on the river, landmarks and cultural history.

Western Development Museum: The Western Development Museum is the keeper of Saskatchewan’s collective heritage. Transport yourself back to a time when the clip-clop of horses filled the air. You don’t just visit this museum, you live it!

Lucky Bastard Distillers: Lucky Bastard Distillers is a micro-distillery, which means that they hand craft spirits and liqueurs in very small batches and distil only 250 litres at a time. The benefit of these small distillation batches is that they maintain control of our artistry and capture only the crème de la crème of distillates coming off the still. Their motto is quality over quantity.
