January 19 – 21, 2020
Join us in Edmonton as event professionals from across Canada and beyond gather for 3 days to make new friends and gain access to our industry’s global thought-leaders and resources. As we move into our third year, we are thrilled that GO WEST has become Canada’s Event for Event Professionals. Wondering what all the buzz is about? Mark your calendar and plan on attending. We are expecting a participation of 800 of our industry’s finest from all corners of the continent. See you there!
Program & Agenda
GO WEST is designed by event professionals for event professionals. Our program is about you and we put you at the center of it. Be prepared for three days jam-packed with social events, bootcamps, keynote sessions, an experiential tradeshow and much more. We are bringing together the best our industry has to offer for you to connect with and learn from right here in Canada.
Exhibiting & Sponsoring
GO WEST is the only large-scale event for event professionals held annually west of Toronto. This is your opportunity to showcase your brand and offerings to 800 event professionals from across Canada and beyond. Our direct marketing reaches over 6,000 event professionals and our social media channels reach thousands more. We are looking for partners who will engage with us in this initiative – who will immerse themselves and have an ongoing prevalence before, during and after the event.
THE EXPERIENTIAL HALL is one of our most popular and engaging components of GO WEST. It is built around a tradeshow that we have kept affordable, constrained within a short time frame and highly targeted at buying event professionals. Our tradeshow for GO WEST 2020 will have 100 exhibit booths.
As part of GO WEST we host a tradeshow which is affectionately known as The Experiential Hall. This is an experience not to be missed. It is a place for planners to meetup, take in workshops, and get connected with resources like yours.
For GO WEST 2020 we are designing the hall for 100 exhibit spaces. We require that experiential elements be incorporated into every exhibit space throughout the hall. The Experiential Hall runs on the morning of Tuesday, January 21 from 09:00 to 13:00.
Please note: Exhibitors will not receive a post-event list of attendees. These lists are provided to cash sponsors only.
Let’s discuss ideas and build a sponsorship program to market your brand and offerings and maximize your return on investment. We love talking ideas and finding impactful ways for you to engage with our community of event professionals.
GO WEST would not be possible without the support of our partners and sponsors. You make this unique event for event professionals possible. We understand that your contribution is an investment. We will work with you to build a sponsorship program that will maximize your ROI.
When you sponsor GO WEST we will market your brand and offerings to our 800 participants, to our email database of over 6,000 event professionals and to thousands more through our social media channels and website.
Thank you to our Partners & Supporters
Each one of these organizations shares our vision for GO WEST and understands the value it brings to our events industry. They have so graciously jumped on board to help us realize our vision and to create an exceptional experience for our attendees. We are excited to see it all come together on January 19-21 as we work together to knock the ball out of the park!
