Trade Show


About the trade show

FCM's Annual Conference and Trade Show is the largest annual gathering of senior municipal officials from across Canada.

FCM has been the national voice of municipal government since 1901 and has over 2,000 member municipalities, which represents approximately 92 per cent of the Canadian population. FCM members include Canada's largest cities, small and rural communities, and 19 provincial and territorial municipal associations.

Increase your share of the $98-billion municipal marketplace, and meet face-to-face with influential municipal decision-makers who are hard to reach through conventional business channels. FCM's Annual Conference and Trade Show is the one place where political, managerial and technical municipal representatives come together to learn about and obtain strategic tools of the future.
