It is never too early to start planning your attendance at the agri-retail event of the year – the 2018 CAAR Conference.

Exhibitor Registration is now Open

Exhibitor registration is now open for the 2018 CAAR Conference!

Hosted at TCU Place in Saskatoon, Sask., from Feb. 13–15, 2018, the 2018 CAAR Conference is the perfect place to showcase your business, new products and connect with customers from across Canada.

Exhibition space sold out early last year and we expect a sell-out again this year – avoid disappointment by securing your booth as early as possible.

New in 2018, registered exhibitors will receive one ticket to the highly anticipated CAAR's Choice Awards Banquet in addition to their conference pass!

Registered exhibitors at the 2018 CAAR Conference will also receive a company listing in the conference registration guide, the conference program and on, and will have an opportunity to participate in the Innovation Showdown.*
