ABOUT

Fairs, exhibitions and agricultural societies are reuniting for the first time in more than a year at the joint CAFE – SAASE – MAAS annual convention in Regina, Saskatchewan at the Doubletree by Hilton from November 17-20, 2021.

The Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (CAFE) is pleased to announce a joint partnership with the Saskatchewan Association of Agricultural Societies and Exhibitions (SAASE) and the Manitoba Association of Agricultural Societies (MAAS) to host the annual convention.

 

The annual convention will be in person as well as available online through a virtual platform for those who cannot make it in person with the theme "Reunite."

 

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Improved learning experience

As part of our redesign, we are offering more panel discussions to provide in-depth and scalable conversations from experts in their field. 

Save money

If you're joining us in person, this year exclusively we've reduced rates by 25% and the hotel room rate is $129/night. If you join us virtually: No travel, no accommodations and lower registration fees mean you can get great professional development for a fraction of what it would usually cost.

Expand your network

Networking is important, both in person and online. This year, we'll have a matchmaking feature to pair you with people who have similar interests or are knowledgeable in what you're interested in learning more about. Meet with peers across Canada and set up a meeting in our system to have video calls or chats to learn about the exciting things happening in different parts of the country.

Reunite

We haven't been able to gather and see each other for two years! It's time to reunite, catch up and celebrate.
