Toronto Gift Fair – January 2019 Incubator Project

Please note: Registration is full for this project. In the event of cancellations, or that we are able to secure an expanded booth space from the Toronto Gift Fair, we are currently keeping a waitlist of potential participants. Please contact the Craft Alliance office for details.

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 2019. 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 2019.  As the timeline is very short, applications should be completed and forwarded to Craft Alliance immediately.
