for attending the 89th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Vancouver.
Thanks to all our delegates, exhibitors, visitors and guests for making the 89th CPMA Convention and Trade show a huge success. Over 3500 participants visited the trade show floor to see the latest in product innovations offered by our 250 exhibitors and a new product showcase featuring 52 products.
Canada’s major retail chains took center stage with a plenary discussion highlighting each chain’s Fresh Identity. Thanks to the senior representatives from Costco, Loblaw, Metro, Sobey’s and Walmart for sharing their insights.
In addition to the usual business program the 2014 show included an expanded children’s program for a group of grade 4 Vancouver students, exclusive sessions for retail produce managers and a panel discussion for foodservice operators and providers.
Thank you to the Vancouver organizing committee and their volunteers for their contributions to this outstanding event and to our sponsors for their generous support. Again this year a significant donation of 48,892 pounds of produce was made by CPMA exhibitors to the Vancouver Food Bank.
Enjoy these highlights from Vancouver's Live Healthy, Eat Fresh. and join us for our 90th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Montréal, Québec.
