CHFA 2021 Events Lineup
As we look for different ways to engage next year, CHFA will be hosting a series of standalone virtual events. These events are being crafted to connect you not just to products, but to the people, trends and ideas that will propel you and your business.
As we are developing innovative and creative ways to bring the industry together, here’s just a glimpse of what’s in store. Block these dates in your calendars and stay tuned.
February 19, 2021
Unlock the future of the Canadian health food industry at NEXT by CHFA. This one-day virtual event is focused exclusively on cutting-edge innovation, trends and education in emerging categories like CBD, plant-based, functional foods and more. It also features engaging speakers, like special keynote Dr. Morgaine Gaye, Food Futurologist.
NEXT by CHFA is specifically designed to create collisions between trend setters (suppliers), trend makers (retailers), and trend accelerators (investors) to facilitate conversation and spark opportunities – which can be hard to come by in our current climate.
Healthier by Nature Expo
March 20, 2021
Transforming the concept of a live health and wellness show, this one-day consumer focused event will give Canadians the opportunity to connect and engage with your brand in ground-breaking and bold new ways, virtually. With an extensive line-up of speakers including influencers, experts and brand ambassadors, consumers will be able to attend educational sessions, cooking classes and stroll through the show, all from the comfort of their home. Find out more about our exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities here.
CHFA Connect – New and Improved
April 16 & 17, 2021
Since we won’t be meeting physically this spring for CHFA West, CHFA Connect will bring us together virtually. As an expansion of our inaugural CHFA Connect that took place in September of 2020, this event will build on the success with even more ways to engage, expanded educational offerings and more opportunities to network and connect. Similar to our live event, the show will take place on a Friday and Saturday to allow attendees to explore on their own time, at their own convenience, without the demands of the workweek. With 24/7 access and additional on demand options, attendees can create their own schedule and explore booths at a time that works best for them. We will be sharing more event details in early 2021 including opportunities for exhibiting and sponsoring.
CHFA East is Going Fully Virtual
September 14-15, 2021
Details Coming Soon!
With the health and safety of our show participants remaining a priority, we have decided to return to our digital halls one last time. While this decision was not an easy one to make, we know that prepping for shows takes time, and we wanted to provide our members with as much planning runway as possible to make September a success.
With a few digital shows under our belts, we've got lots in the works to make this our biggest and most innovative virtual show yet, with more of what you love and NEW ways to engage, connect and grow with our community, including French-language and Organic-focused conference tracks.
As we get down to the exciting work of building an experience to remember, please stay tuned for more details about the show, coming shortly in mid-June.
