Why Join

 

Why should I join CanGift?
When you join CanGift, you have unique access to buyers, marketing opportunities, invaluable industry intelligence, professional development events and deep savings on the essential services and products you need to run a successful giftware enterprise.

 

Not convinced? Here are our own top eight reasons to join CanGift:

 

Number 1

Reach Buyers
Get in front of the 42,000 qualified buyers who attend our annual Toronto, Alberta and Quebec Gift Fairs. Buyers large and small come to these events to see and order the latest and most innovative products — products like yours.

 

Number 2

Cut Costs
CanGift members receive discounts on shipping, payment processing, telecommunications, insurance and more. The hundreds — even thousands of dollars — you can save will pay for your annual membership fee many times over.

 

Number 3

Market Yourself
Exhibiting at our fairs helps build your brand. Take advantage of reasonably priced ads in our three fair guides, or list your products on our Product Locator. Information in the Product Locator is used for the CanGift fairs app, available six weeks prior to each fair.

 

Number 4

Gain Insights
Look no further than CanGift for new ideas, expert advice and best practices. Find relevant articles, interviews and stories covering products, consumer and market trends, marketing, sales, technology and more.

 

Number 5

Stay Connected
CanGift is your source to stay on top of the fast-changing giftware industry. Receive news, industry announcements and updates that impact Canadian suppliers. You can also post wanted ads for reps or sale ads for products in our classifieds.

 

Number 6

Raise Your Profile
We bring members and buyers together to promote professional development at events that include guest speakers, business workshops and awards celebrations. Each January we host our Retailer of the Year Awards during the Toronto Gift Fair.  

 

Number 7

Easy-to-Use Tools
CanGift members benefit from interactive tools on the CanGift site. From organizing your presence at our fairs to marketing opportunities, managing payments, updating your profile and more.

 

Number 8

Get Support
Running a business can be difficult, so we make ourselves available to help our members make better decisions and grow their business every day. It’s an important part of our commitment to help grow Canada’s giftware industry!
