    EXHIBITORS: 

    The Cochrane Trade Show is the largest annual event in town!

    Each year we strive to expand and improve the Trade Show based on comments from the past, and this year is no exception. We heard you and this year's Show will take place on Saturday, May 6th and Sunday, May 7th 2017 at the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre. Check back often for updates on what you will see at this year’s show!

    As a consumer show, the event has over 140 local exhibits ranging from home based businesses to products and services offered at retail stores. The show has attractions for all ages, and many interactive displays, as well as family entertainment.  Public admission grows each year with expectations of 2800 to 3000+ people visiting the show.

    Various non-profit organizations will also be showcasing their talents and ways they support the community at large. If you are interested in volunteering with any of these special groups, here is your opportunity to find out more about each of them.

    No matter what aspect of the show you participate in, it is sure to be a great experience for everyone!

    Come out to the show this year and help support the businesses in the Town of Cochrane.

    More information on EXHIBITING…

    Exhibitors: 

    The Cochrane & District Chamber of Commerce (CDCC) is seeking another outstanding trade show for 2017. We are continuing to develop and improve the show based on suggestions and comments received from our 2017 show.

    We thank all exhibitors for their cooperation and continued support while we continue to adapt and expand the show to achieve the greatest potential for your business. Below is the basic information, but please have a look at our Exhibitor Manual for the full scoop!  For a snapshot of our 2017 draft floorplan (subject to change), please click here.  To view a list of exhibitors to date for 2017's show, click here.

    For 2017's show, we have big news!  We have been granted the opportunity to utilize the new curling rink!  We are the first to use this newly constructed expansion of the Spray Lake Sawmills Recreation Centre.  This in itself will be a draw for the general public to attend the 2017 show as the curling rink and water park expansion is a highly anticipated development being added to the growing community of Cochrane.  This is very exciting news for us at the Cochrane and District Chamber of Commerce.  We will be using Hockey Arena 1 and the Curling Rink (no Arena 2 as in past years).  The Curling Rink offers more room to grow as it offers more floor space than a hockey arena. 

    Registration is now open for Members!  From Nov 2nd to Jan 15th, early bird pricing is being awarded to members of the Cochrane & District Chamber of Commerce.  Members do receive a reduced registration rate compared to nonmembers throughout the entire registration period.  Nonmember registration opens on Dec 15th.  Please see the below charts for further booth price scheduling (prices are all pre-GST).  Note that it is to your advantage to register as soon as possible as pricing does increase closer to Show.
