CPMA 2023 Convention and Trade Show sponsorship opportunities package

The Annual 2023 CPMA Convention and Trade Show (CPMA 2023) will bring together produce professionals to celebrate CPMA’s 98 years of supporting the fresh fruit and vegetable industry. The event will take place April 25-27, 2023, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

This is Canada’s largest fruit and vegetable show, attracting over 4,000 attendees including growers/packers/shippers, wholesalers, retailers, brokers, importers/exporters, food service, transportation, floral, and industry professionals throughout the whole produce supply chain.

The CPMA show delivers a premier audience from across the produce supply chain and provides a superb opportunity to raise your organization’s profile as a sponsor while supporting your association’s goals to “Connect, Advocate and Grow” the produce industry.


There are six levels of sponsorship:

Chairman’s Club: $25,000 +

Chairman’s Club sponsorship ensures the highest level of corporate visibility and recognition. It is the only level that provides sponsors the opportunity to give a short presentation during their sponsored function. Chairman’s Club sponsors also receive continuous corporate exposure throughout the Convention and Trade Show.

Platinum: $17,500 to $24,999

Platinum sponsors receive prominent recognition and access to valuable networking and promotional opportunities. The CPMA 2023 Annual Convention and Trade Show in Toronto is an ideal venue for Platinum sponsors to increase their visibility and position themselves as industry leaders.

Gold: $10,000 to $17,499

Gold sponsors receive visibility at events such as the Delegate Lunch or the CPMA Directors and New Members’ Reception. They also have excellent access to extensive publicity opportunities.

Silver: $2,500 to $9,999

Silver sponsors receive recognition for their support of educational activities offered throughout the Convention and Trade Show. These include the Passion for Produce program elements, Retail Produce or oriented activities, Business Sessions and Learning Lounges. Sponsors also have excellent access to publicity opportunities and supplementary event invitations

Bronze: $1,000 to $2,499

Bronze sponsors can build a corporate profile within the produce industry as active supporters of CPMA initiatives and programs.

Friends of CPMA: $250 to $999

Friends of CPMA support the overall program (rather than specific activities) of CPMA’s Annual Convention and Trade Show.
