The Imprint Canada Virtual Trade Show provides an online trade event designed to engage, inspire, and educate the Canadian promotional and imprintable products industry, during this time when traditional in-person Imprint Canada Shows are not possible.
The Virtual Show provides the resources and tools needed for our industry’s businesses to flourish despite the restrictions brought on by the pandemic.
Our next event takes place Wednesday February 24, showcasing full collections available from suppliers, and will feature enhanced networking capabilities for all delegates to best proceed in the new year with tremendous offerings and great connections, along with elevated knowledge and expertise.
