Registration for the 2024 CPMA Annual Convention and Trade Show is officially open.
The trade will take place April 23-25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, B.C. The International Sustainability Summit will occur at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel on Friday, April 26.
“We are looking forward to welcoming produce industry professionals to Vancouver for CPMA 2024,” said Brian Faulkner, chair of the CPMA 2024 Organizing Committee. “CPMA’s Annual Convention and Trade Show offers produce professionals a unique environment to showcase their products and services while strengthening their business relationships in Canada in a comfortable, friendly, and familiar atmosphere.”
This year’s show will feature over 600 booths representing over 270 companies worldwide, including growers, importers and exporters. Activities include trade show floor, business sessions, and social events such as the chair’s welcome reception, CPMA’s after party, awards brunch, delegate breakfast and lunch, and an annual banquet.
Meanwhile, the International Sustainability Summit will take place following the annual convention and trade show in partnership with the International Federation for Produce Standards and the Global Coalition of Fresh Produce. The one-day event will feature speakers discussing implementing sustainability standards and reporting for the produce industry.
“This year, we are bringing together this international audience to not only enhance their skills and expand their professional network within the Canadian marketplace but to also engage them in discussions that advance sustainability, an important issue that impacts our industry worldwide,” said Ron Lemaire, president of the CPMA.
