The Conference wraps up with a show-stopping Closing Keynote presented by CFL legend Michael “Pinball” Clemons.  Few  people exemplify the qualities of personal excellence, teamwork, community leadership and overcoming the odds better than Pinball Clemons.  Prepare to be entertained and inspired!

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.
