OPPORTUNITY: Toronto Gift Fair - January 2018

To further develop export markets for Atlantic Canadian craft producers, Craft Alliance will lead our second presentation called CRAFT: Lab – Toronto Incubator Project to attend the TORONTO GIFT FAIR trade show in January 2018. This will be a pan-Atlantic mission where Craft Alliance will lead the coordination and development of the project. The project will involve NEW first-time exhibitors from Atlantic Canada looking to expand their sales to Central and Western Canada. The TORONTO GIFT FAIR is a wholesale trade show produced by the Canadian Gift Association and is held twice a year in Toronto, Ontario.

Approximately 6-10 Atlantic Canadian craft producers will be selected to participate in a Pavilion Showcase at the TORONTO GIFT FAIR trade show in January 2018. As the timeline is very short, applications should be completed and forwarded to Craft Alliance immediately.
