Trade Shows

The biggest events of the year for the foodservice industry!

CRFA owns and operates the CRFA Show in Toronto. We’ve also merged our BC Foodservice Expo with the BC Hospitality Industry Expo in Vancouver to create a brand new show, Connect. In addition, CRFA is the proud title sponsor of the Alberta Foodservice Expo (formerly the Alberta Foodservice Show), and ApEx serving Atlantic Canada.

ApEx Trade Show Statement from Restaurants Canada
(formerly CRFA)

March 13, 2014 -- It has been brought to our attention that some manufacturers and distributors have been barred from the upcoming ApEx show in Halifax. Restaurants Canada was unaware of this decision and no longer owns the ApEx Show, which was sold to MediaEdge in October, 2011.  

Restaurants Canada is the title sponsor of the ApEx show. As a non-partisan association representing the Canadian restaurant and foodservices industry, it is our policy that any trade show we are involved with should be open to all manufacturers, service providers and distributors. We have made our views known to the show owners and will continue to advocate for this position.
