The largest fresh produce event in the Canadian industry, CPMA’s Annual Convention & Trade Show provides a unique opportunity for industry leaders to enhance existing and develop new business opportunities in Canada. Our show regularly attracts key decision-makers and customers from the fresh produce sector. Participants include industry executives, members of the fresh produce supply chain, and government representatives who are directly or indirectly involved in the Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable sector.

In the words of one of our previous exhibitors:

“Great exposure into the Canadian retailer market. Our company is well established in the U.S. so this show provided a great opportunity to get in front of a lot of Canadian retailers - they showed a high level of interest in our product.” – Jeff Helseth, Twist-Ease Corporation

Exhibitor Warnings

Attendee Lists
Please be aware that any solicitation trying to sell you the attendee list and contacts is a scam. CPMA has no affiliation with any such companies, and does not make attendee contact information publicly available, in accordance with our privacy policy and Canada’s CASL anti-spam legislation.

Housing Scams
CPMA does not use housing bureaus. Please make all hotel bookings by contacting the hotel directly using the information posted on the convention website.

The chances are quite good that you will receive a fax, email or phone call that offers you cut rate housing for the CPMA Convention and Trade Show. The author’s apparent intent is to convince you that the offer is made on behalf of the CPMA Convention and Trade Show. These companies are NOT representatives of CPMA and its Annual Convention & Trade Show.

International Fair Directory
Should you receive an email or invoice from International Fairs Directory requesting companies verify their show listing and submit payment, please be aware this is fraudulent communication. This guide is an independent publication, and has no affiliation with CPMA and its official exhibitor listings.

The only official exhibitor listing and program for the show is produced through CPMA. Should you have any questions about the legitimacy of any solicitations regarding the CPMA Convention and Trade Show, please contact Nicole Jeffrey at njeffrey@cpma.ca.
