The Alberta Gift + Home Market is a trade-only event for wholesale gift retail industry buyers only and is not open to the general public. To ensure a qualified audience of professional buyers, we ask for two forms of ID to confirm the business licence/registration and that the individual is employed by that business.
Please refer to the registration page for a detailed list of acceptable business and buyer identification
If you have pre-registered, all you need to bring to gain entry to the market is the badge that was either mailed to you or picked up at the advance registration desk. If you are registering on-site, you will need to bring your employee ID and your company's identification (if no one has attended from your company in the past).
Please refer to the registration page for a detailed list of acceptable business and buyer identification.
No one under the age of 16 is permitted on the show floor, except infants incapable of sitting up on their own. No strollers are allowed. Infants taken onto the show floor must be carried at all times in a bunting bag or similar support. Parent(s)/guardian(s) will be required to sign a Release and Indemnification Acknowledgement waiver before entering the show floor.
Pets are not allowed. However, this does not apply to guide dogs or service animals. A guest with a disability accompanied by a guide dog or service animal will be allowed access.
Every business should keep records of their employees, whether full- or part-time. You should be able to issue some official document confirming an individual's employment. If you cannot provide any documentation, this person cannot be registered to attend the show. A character or personal reference from an owner, either in person or in writing, will not be accepted as ID.
