Wondering why you should exhibit at the CSAE Showcase?

Are Canadian associations your clients?

Then you need to be at the CSAE 2018 Showcase in Ottawa!

The CSAE Showcase is a part of the 3-day CSAE National Conference 2018. Senior association executives gather to discuss issues related to their industry, share ideas and create lasting connections with their peers, and network with suppliers.

There is nowhere better than at the CSAE 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.

2018 EXHIBITOR LIST - coming in 2018

This manual has been emailed to the person identified as your company’s booth contact, and contains details and tips designed to guide you through the process. To save your company time and money, review this manual thoroughly and stick to deadlines! Make sure 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.


Often the person receiving this manual and completing the forms is not the same person who attends the show. We recommend you tell the people 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.

CAUTION: Beware of Fraudulent Hotel Offers

We've noted poachers frequently try to obtain credit card information from our exhibitors. CSAE has not hired any third party company to handle accommodation for Exhibitors!

Please disregard any organizations offering discounted hotel rates. These companies are not affiliated with CSAE and you should not, under any circumstances, provide them with your payment information
