We invite you to show them what you’ve got at CRFA’s 2013 shows in Vancouver and Toronto. As an exhibitor, you’ll be part of the most comprehensive industry trade shows in the country. But most importantly, you will connect with thousands of qualified buyers who come each year to see “who’s who” and sample “what’s new” in the industry.

Being an exhibitor is one of the most cost-effective ways to promote, sell, introduce and demonstrate all that’s new with your company in 2013.

Our exhibitors also have the opportunity to sponsor industry seminars and workshops, culinary demonstrations by celebrity chefs, receptions, competitions and much more. CRFA offers many levels of sponsorship for you to choose from.
