DID YOU KNOW….

About London
Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the region’s economic, entertainment and cultural hub. With a population of more than 450,000, London is Canada’s 11th largest city and an ideal environment to work, play and live. Big enough for the ‘big city’ experience, but still far more affordable in comparison with many other Canadian cities, London boasts an extensive educational and healthcare community, while providing the safe and clean atmosphere of a small community.

Forest City
Affectionately known as the Forest City, London boasts more than 200 treed areas and public parks.  A vibrant, walkable and easy to navigate city centre is home to historic architecture, hip restaurants, unique attractions and world class venues framed by an extensive beautiful walking, running or biking pathways that runs along the Thames River. It’s a striking green-nature contrast to the innovative, economic and intellectual powerhouse of London.

Arts and Culture
From Museum London to the main stage of The Grand Theatre, the arts thrive in nearly every corner of the city. London put down its creative roots early, over the years nurturing a heart and soul that has produced some great Canadian talent in both the visual and performing arts. Revolutionary artists like Jack Chambers and Greg Curnoe; performers like actors Kate Nelligan, Ryan Gosling and Oscar-winning screenwriter and director Paul Haggis; dancer Evelyn Hart and musician Guy Lombardo. Today, a new generation of musicians, artists and entertainers of all sorts fuel the city’s tradition of artistic excellence. London is Canada’s first UNESCO City of Music.

It is for all of these reasons and so many more that we cannot wait to welcome you to London, June 11-13!  Mark your calendars today!

2022 Conference Recap

 

 

After almost 3 years, CAEM’s marquee in-person event descended upon Hamilton, Ontario from June 26th to June 28th.   The event was a true celebration of our vibrant industry as exhibition professionals from across the country reunited, engaged and connected.

From inspiring keynote speakers like Heath Slawner, Laura Cole and Peter Katz, to the buzz of connections being made at ExpoCAN, the 2022 CAEM Conference achieved its goal of delivering timely and relevant education as well as endless peer-to-peer neetworking opportunites.  And that was just during the day!  Our evening events did not disappoint and provided the perfect atmosphere to continue conversations and build relationships.

Many thanks to the 2022 CAEM Conference Committee for their hard work, commitment, and vision.  A huge thank you is also due to our sponsors whose support made this event possible.  Finally, thank you to each and every one of our members who attended the Conference and contributed to its success.
