International Marketplace

International Marketplace

Embedded within the convention, the International Marketplace serves dual purposes, as a provider of key services to international delegates and as a physical space for networking with others from Canada and around the world.

CAAMA members and CMW delegates can participate in a series of targeted business-to-business meetings through the International Marketplace at CMW. Contact khahn300@gmail.com for more details.

The meeting place for International and Canadian delegates looking to do business with each other.
