Meet the Generals

The first-ever ICBA Meet The Generals event, held Burnaby on June 13, 2023, was a huge success. More than 500 ICBA members met to accelerate business development, networking, and partnership-building endeavours. This networking event offered an unparalleled opportunity to engage with more than 20 major General Contractors (GCs) and hundreds of industry professionals in the Lower Mainland’s industrial, commercial, institutional, civil, and multi-family construction sectors.

Watch for details on the 2024 Meet The Generals next year!


For more than 30 years, the ICBA Open golf tournament has been a highlight of our members’ summer and a great opportunity to network and have some fun. Proceeds from the ICBA Open benefit our Building Stronger Futures initiative that supports bursaries for young men and women pursuing a career in the trades.

When we return on July 27, 2023, the tournament will include all of the things that make the ICBA Open a great day – a beautiful course, buffet dinner, fun hole activities, the mega-putt, ice cream and other food trucks, and contests.

ICBA Buildex Booth

ICBA’s presence at BUILDEX is always a must-see, with props, actors, and fun giveaways. In 2017, the booth was Star Wars-themed, and featured a live Jedi Knight, the evil Kylo Ren, and the beloved droid BB-8. A year later, ICBA had a construction Iron Throne built as part of our Game of Thrones theme. Jon Snow and Daenarys Targaryen took photos with the lords and ladies of the BUILDEX realm.

In 2020, just before COVID-19 shut down the world, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man hosted the booth and visitors tried out Avengers props like Thor’s hammer, Captain America’s shield, Hulk’s fists, and Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet. In 2022, the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda greeted guests. And in 2023, we built LEGO together.

Trade show booths can all run together at a big show like BUILDEX but rest assured: you’ll always notice ICBA, and we’ll be back with a new theme on February 14-15, 2024. Come learn how ICBA can help you build your construction business!
