Description
CPMA?s Annual Convention & Trade Show provides a unique opportunity for industry leaders to enhance business opportunities in Canada. The Convention & Trade Show regularly attracts key decision-makers and customers from the fresh produce sector as participants include business people, members of the industry, as well as government representatives who are directly or indirectly involved in the Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable sector. There is tremendous global opportunity in the Canadian marketplace, where 3 out of every 4 dollars spent at retail on produce is spent on imported products. The CPMA Trade Show is Canada?s largest event dedicated to the fruit and vegetable industry showcasing exhibitors from Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Central America, Mexico, United States of America and Canada. Attendees include all major stakeholders in the produce supply chain, with one out of three visitors representing the retail/wholesale and food service sectors.

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
