Calgary Show Met With Optimism For Future of Industry

September 2016 – The 18th annual Western Imprint Canada Show returned to Calgary September 9 & 10th, and a sense of determined optimism was the strong message delivered by enthusiastic attendees.

With Alberta’s economy having struggled in recent years, the promotional marketing industry in the province has been hit hard the last few years.

However, attendees at the Show displayed their resolve not only with their presence at the Show, but exhibitors reported visitors’ increased willingness to learn and discover new products and technologies.

Response to the Shows’ seminars echoed this, as the four seminars averaged nearly 30 attendees over four sessions.

This commitment demonstrates that the industry in Alberta is preparing itself for a market recovery to previous lofty levels. And those who attended the Western Imprint Canada Show, have gained a crucial head start.
