Exhibitor Pass Information 

The CNE is moving towards an exclusive online system for Exhibitor Pass purchases. 

This year's continuing transition will see us offering Early Bird pricing ONLY online. This month each exhibitor will receive by email an information sheet along with a unique code to use on the online system. 

The Early Bird rate will only be honoured to those exhibitors who purchase at least one pass prior to the  5pm August 7th deadline

As in the past, you are required to purchase an admission pass for each one of your staff members who will be working during the fair.
