A great new season begins here!

Twice a year, an astounding array of the world's best home, gift and lifestyle resources converge at the Alberta Gift Show, offering an incredible selection of merchandise in one convenient location. Our floor plan is conveniently categorized into five product categories: Made in Canada, Living, Style, Gifts etc. and Gourmet Fare.

You'll find something surprising in every aisle - top name manufacturers, innovative newcomers and cutting-edge designers. Featuring more than 500 exhibitors and over 15,000 retail buyers, this is the place where you can discover the finest mix of gift giving ideas from jewellery & fashion accessories to gourmet food, home decor and gardening, bath & body products, items both manufactured and made by hand in Canada, plus much, much more!

Our line-up of speakers will touch on some of the most important trend and business development issues today. You'll leave these sessions armed with useful ideas to take back to your store and to apply to boost your sales.


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.
