ICBA Gala 2022

A Conversation with Russell Wilson, NFL Quarterback

ICBA Gala Dinner

Join ICBA April 26, 2022, as we celebrate British Columbia’s construction industry and enjoy a conversation with one of the NFL’s biggest stars – Russell Wilson of the Denver Broncos, in one of his first public events since being traded.

For 10 seasons, Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks to the franchise’s greatest heights, including winning Super Bowl XLVIII. A future Hall of Famer, Wilson is considered one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks.

Vancouver, BC
Reception: 5 PM
Dinner: 7 PM


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 in July 2022, the tournament will include all of the things that make the ICBA Open a great day – a beautiful course, BBQ steak buffet dinner, fun hole activities, the mega-putt, ice cream and other food trucks, and contests.

ICBA CEO Breakfast

Every year, the ICBA CEO Breakfast kicks off the BUILDEX construction trade show at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The next CEO Breakfast is set for Wednesday, March 23, 2022. More details and registration coming soon.

Our keynote speakers, rennie group’s Bob Rennie and Andrew Ramlo, will give us an in-depth look at the Lower Mainland real estate market, coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Will prices continue to go up? What supply is coming, and how could it affect prices? And what could be done to make housing more affordable?

ICBA President Chris Gardner will also release the results of ICBA’s annual Wage and Benefit Survey at the breakfast, which provides insight into the current state of the construction industry in British Columbia and the trends shaping construction in the province: which trades are most in demand, what companies are paying workers, and how construction businesses are feeling about the state of the economy.

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.

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 March 23-24, 2022.
