Canada’s first permanent export exhibition facility, The Canada Export Centre, will open in the heart of Vancouver’s business district in November 2004. The Centre, which is being billed as a one-stop shop for Canadian export opportunities, is aimed at increasing international sales and visibility for Canadian businesses. The full-service facility will provide Canadian manufacturers and service providers with the ability to showcase their wares year round in a 15,000 sq. ft. presentation centre, featuring 370 permanent display booths.
The Centre will be staffed with an experienced sales team who will be able promote member’s products and assist both the individual visitor, as well as conference and trade show attendees. The Centre will give direct exposure to approximately 200 annual inbound trade missions to B.C. and 8.3 international travelers who visit Vancouver annually.
The Canada Export Centre is modeled after other highly successful export facilities in New Zealand and Taiwan.
"The cost for a single company to effectively market themselves internationally can be prohibitive," says the Centre director, Mark Mensing. "The Centre makes it possible by providing year round exposure to individuals and companies for what it would cost to attend an average three-day trade show."
