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 of all sizes, from Canada's cities and rural communities, to northern communities and 20 provincial and territorial municipal associations. Together, they represent approximately 92% of the Canadian population from coast to coast to coast.

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.
