Craft East Buyers’ Expo is a vehicle for the purpose of promoting crafts and giftware manufactured exclusively in the Atlantic Provinces. For two days in February the finest in candles, clothing, food, glass, home decor, jewellery, leather, metal, native, paintings, paper, pottery, stone, wood and much more will be gathered at the Homewood Suites by Hilton & Conference Centre in beautiful downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

For over 40 years, the Craft East Buyers’ Expo (formerly Atlantic Craft Trade Show) has attracted buyers from across Canada, the United States and other offshore locations. This event is jointly sponsored by the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. Products at the expo are unique and are juried to ensure that standards of excellence are maintained and to guarantee that they are indeed produced and manufactured in Atlantic Canada.

Open only to the trade, the Craft East Buyers’ Expo highlights high quality professional producers rarely seen elsewhere. We invite you to browse our brand new Online Craft Portal, which allows you to browse products made by our registered craftspeople from across the Atlantic provinces, and to also come and see us live in February.
