Why You Need to Exhibit at #CPMA2022

The largest fresh produce event in the Canadian industry, the CPMA Convention and Trade Show provides a unique opportunity for industry leaders to enhance existing relationships and develop new business opportunities in Canada. Our show regularly attracts key decision-makers and customers from all segments of the fresh produce supply chain. Participants include industry executives, category managers, government representatives, and countless other notable staff who are involved in the Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable sector.

The 96th annual CPMA Convention and Trade Show will take place in Montreal, Quebec, from Tuesday, April 5, to Thursday April 7, 2022, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

In the words of one of our previous exhibitors:

“The CPMA Convention and Trade Show offers 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 official event hotels directly using the information posted on the convention website.

The chances are quite good that you will receive an email or phone call that offers you cut-rate housing for the CPMA Convention and Trade Show. The business’ 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 or our Convention and 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 our 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.
