Why Exhibit?

Because Grocery and Specialty Food West is Canada’s premier western grocery showcase encompassing all aspects of the grocery industry.

Grocery & Specialty Food West is the only show to comprehensively connect with grocery professionals and retailers in the West.

This show is the only exhibition dedicated to serving the growing multi-billion dollar grocery industry. Categories include fresh, frozen and refrigerated foods, snacks, beverages, ethnic specialties, and gourmet lines. Along with food categories, retailers are looking for solutions for front and back end (operations, POS systems, displays, uniforms, equipment, etc).

It’s also a must-attend event for food producers, manufacturers to network with key Canadian retailers to further enhance their position in the market place as well as to expand coast to coast into Canada.

Morning Conference Sessions, engaging workshops and live trade floor listen and learn sessions for grocers and manufacturers provide effective ways to show and sell more effectively.

Discover the latest trends, innovations and growing product categories on the more than 80,000 sq.ft trade floor where there are close to 300 booths and more than 2,400 attendees.
