A great new season begins here!
The Alberta Gift Fair has operated for more than 40 years and takes place each February and August at the Northlands facility in Edmonton. The Alberta Gift Fair is the second largest trade-only event of any industry in Western Canada, attracting over 11,000 attendees annually and more than 700 exhibitors each year.
The Alberta Gift Show promises to be the most efficient way for exhibitors to reach the largest number of retailers in Western Canada. Exhibitors in this market meet loyal retailers from remote areas that they could never access otherwise. Many of these attendees shop exclusively at the Alberta Gift Show and do not visit any other trade show. The western retail market continues to show growth opportunities not being experienced in other parts of Canada. This is the best time to put your company in front of western retailers.
