CHFA Quebec 2015

CHFA Quebec 2015

After several years at another downtown Montreal location, CHFA Quebec is returning to the Palais des congrès in 2015.

With approximately 140 exhibiting companies, this will be the largest show that CHFA has held in Montreal.   The event, which only takes place every other year, is an excellent opportunity to source new products, meet with manufacturers and suppliers that you might not see otherwise and network with the industry.  In addition to the many show specials that exhibitors will have available, you can also take advantage of free education being held right on the show floor. The CHFA is also proud to host the CHFA Industry Achievement Awards & Dinner on February 6 which celebrates excellence in the natural health and organic products industry.

Complete details and information on registering can be found on the CHFA website, chfa.ca or by emailing info@chfa.ca.
