September 2015
Thank you & Congratulations! 

On behalf of the Canadian National Exhibition Association, the Exhibit Sales and Sponsorship team and all CNE members, I would like to thank you for participating at this year's CNE.

With your participation in the shopping pavilions, and taking advantage of many branding opportunities available to you, and participating in our special events, our visitors had the opportunity to meet you and learn more about your products and services.

Our highest priority was to provide you with quality service and support while you interacted with visitors in the Halls; for those who came in from outside of Ontario and Canada, we hope that you enjoyed your stay in Toronto. We have received very positive feedback from all visitors and exhibitors alike and it is thanks to your collaboration and support that the Shopping Pavilions were such a great success.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2016; we will be in touch soon to discuss renewal opportunities.

Director of Sponsorships, Partnerships & Exhibit Sales 

STAY TUNED for the Post Show Report this fall.

2016 Renewal Applications Process

The 2016 Renewal Applications were distributed to select exhibitors throughout the Shopping Pavilions. If you have received one and haven't already done so,
please complete the application form and submit your 25% deposit to secure the incentive rate pricing prescribed in the Renewal Package. A 25% deposit must be included in order to be considered.

Reserve your space for the 2016 CNE before September 25, 2015 and pay the 2015 market rates.

Applications received after September 25, 2015 will increase by 5%!

It is important to ensure that the products you wish to show and sell at the 2016 CNE are listed in there entirety, for review and consideration by the Review Committee. Listing a Category is simply not enough, you must list all items you wish to carry, for it to be considered - For example; Health & Beauty (category should be followed by all items that fall within that broad category - lipstick, nail polish, shampoo, nail clippers, gels, hairspray.....). Just because it is on your application  doesn't  mean that it has been formally accepted .
  • If you are seeking to increase your booth space, requesting a booth change - please submit this in writing by email or a separate page attached to your application.
  • If you are interested in additional space, with a different product or the same product - please complete an additional application including the list of products you wish to show & sell, submit photos of them and submit it to us.
All exhibitors wishing to renew, will be re-assessed based on the following criteria; on-site performance and adherence to the Rules & Regulations of the Show, booth opening and closing during the show, overall booth display and product mix and quality. It is important to note that the CNE reserves the right to determine which exhibitor it wishes to invite back to participate, year after year. All exhibitors will be subject to review on an annual basis.

Once your 2016 Renewal Application has been reviewed and approved for participation, you will receive an email from your Sales Account Manager with your official Contract Confirmation which will include the approved list of products including product exclusions ( products that were not approved), a floor plan with your booth number & location, a copy of the Rules & Regulations, along with a fees payment schedule. Information will be provided as to what is required back for signature during that process.

Good luck!
