Exhibit space is SELLING FAST. 

Once booths are gone, we will start a wait list.  To be placed on the wait list, fill out and send in the exhibitor form with payment. The payment will not be processed unless we are able to offer you space and you accept it. Position on the wait list is determined by the date we receive your registration form and payment. The form can be emailed to geeta@csae.com or faxed to 416.363.3630. You will be notified via e-mail if a spot becomes available.

THE BIDDIT GAME (Plan Ahead Events)
Watch for information on The BIDDIT GAME, powered by Plan Ahead Events. This game provides the platform and incentive for attendees to visit booths and engage in meaningful conversation with exhibitors to earn BIDDIT BUCKS.   Attendees then use their earned BUCKS to bid on gifts donated by Exhibitors. Plan Ahead Events will fully explain the intent and expected outcomes and will ask for your participation by donating a mock auction item. The BIDDIT GAME is new to Canada, and we are very excited to introduce it at the 2015 Showcase. Please whitelist Plan Ahead Events to make their communication with you smoother.


The CSAE  Showcase is a part of a 3-day conference where the senior association executives gather to discuss issues related to their industry, share ideas and create lasting connections with their peers, and  to network with suppliers. There is nowhere better than at the CSAE 2015 Showcase to meet face-to-face with decision makers and influencers from Canada's most successful not-for-profits. Use this opportunity to demonstrate your products and services to a captive audience.


For details on the move-in and move-out procedures, refer to the EXHIBITOR MANUAL.

This e-manual has been created to give you an overview of the tasks necessary to complete your booth set up. It contains useful information about what to order from whom, by when, what rules and regulations govern the showcase and how to reach our suppliers. Please review this e-manual thoroughly and adhere to deadlines!  It is your responsibility to ensure that all order forms and requests are submitted to the appropriate supplier by the requested deadline date to avoid costly late and overtime labour charges and frustrating delays on site. Attention to this material will save you both time and money! The early completion and return of order forms will make the organization of your exhibit easier and more efficient.


This kit is produced to provide a convenient source of information for your participation in the CSAE 2015 National Conference and Showcase.  However, often the person receiving this manual and completing the forms is not the same person who attends the show. It is also critical that you tell your booth personnel who will be setting up and/or working in the booth what was ordered – and give them copies of the order forms. Many hours of frustration can be saved by this one step. This one step will help avoid confusion on-site and make for a more productive show for your company and on-site team.
