Local MeetUp BC April 25 – A Success!

CKCA hosted a second local meetup for it’s BC members on April 25 in Coquitlam at Troico, a CKCA member’s showroom.

Troico had recently undergone a showroom upgrade and were excited to show their new layout to the industry. Michael Richter, Founder and Owner welcomed 17 attendees to this event. In addition, Blum Canada was kind to sponsor the food and Cameron Porter from Blum provided a presentation “hot off the press” on the trends coming out of Eurocucina that just wrapped up in Europe a week ago.

Michael Richter says “The event went well, some good conversations and some connections made. A worthwhile event for sure!”

Amrita Bhogal, People & Culture Manager at Sunrise Kitchens (and incoming CKCA President) also attended this event and says “I think these local meetups are so important for the community to get to know each other and share insights about our industry. I would also like to thank Michael at Troico for hosting and showing us your beautiful showroom and to Blum for sharing the upcoming general information about our industry.”

Local MeetUps are a way to connect the industry in any region across Canada. The format is a Thursday evening, 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm. We are always looking for local champions who are willing to host a gathering in their facility. The agenda includes a topic of discussion and food is served by the sponsor. These events are free to members and non-members. The goal of meetups is to foster collaboration and industry community in a geographic area. While CKCA works to build the national community,  it’s a big country and we know that creating smaller “pockets” is a personable way for industry to connect.

We look forward to seeing everyone at future local events in BC. If you’re a CKCA member and would like to host a meetup, get in touch with us at
