Western Canada’s Most Essential Gift Trade Show
You'll find something surprising in every aisle of the Alberta Gift Fair – top name manufacturers, innovative newcomers and cutting-edge designers. Featuring more than 700 exhibitors and over 11,000 retail buyers annually, this renowned show offers the finest mix of gift-giving ideas!
Each year, more than 2,500 exhibitors participate in CanGift fairs across Canada displaying hundreds of thousands of products from international name brands to unique, local and handmade goods.
CanGift fairs are made affordable through discounts on travel and accommodation and show specials on Super Tuesday. Retailers also benefit from an exclusive program designed to help save time and money on shipping to their customers.
We Keep You Connected
CanGift fairs allow you to handle the products you've sourced online, build business relationships with new and existing suppliers, and attend seminars and one-on-one consultations with industry experts to increase your professional knowledge.
CanGift carefully designs every detail of the Alberta Gift Fair to give you maximum access to purchasing decision-makers. Well-designed exhibit areas, themed displays, lounge spaces and professional development events at the fair provide ample opportunities to connect with buyers and make sales.
Visitors at CanGift fairs make purchasing decisions for their stores and come ready to buy. Many spend the bulk of their year's budget at our fairs and do not attend any other wholesale gift show.
As trade-only events, our fairs admit only qualified buyers. More than 42,000 qualified buyers attend CanGift fairs each year across Canada. The Alberta Gift Fair attracts more than 10,000 buyers annually.
Each show is carefully designed to give you maximum access to buyers, who come to source new products, keep up with industry trends, make new contacts and reconnect with their current suppliers.
The Alberta Gift Fair is a trade-only event for wholesale gift retail buyers and is not open to the public. This is an order-taking fair only.
