CPMA Convention and tradeshow in Montreal

April 2-4 at the Montreal convention center was the CPMA Convention and Tradeshow in Montreal. The largest event in the Canadian fruits and vegetables industry was a huge success this year. Largely larger than any previous conference held in Montreal, the event brought together exhibitors representing nearly 300 companies, 132 of which were Canadian and 30 were Quebecers.

The QPMA held a booth and volunteered to welcoming booth. The permanence team was able to discover the activities and actions of the association to increase membership. This year, the Quebec company UFrost (the first machine in the world that temporarily freezes alcohol) attracted visitors to the booth before letting the team exchange and learn more from interested visitors about the QPMA.

The QPMA participated in a variety of social activities during the event:
