CAFE announces 2020 Award winners

The Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (CAFE) is pleased to announce the 2020 CAFE Awards winners! It continues to be important to celebrate greatness in our industry, however, the CAFE Awards looked a bit different this year. We still have our four main awards, but while focusing on the most significant contributions of individuals and organizations overall, we also looked particularly at how organizations had innovated in light of COVID-19.
