Why Exhibit

If your business depends on any of the following, CANSEC can deliver an audience to match your needs:

  • Create relationships in the supply chain – CANSEC is the place to meet suppliers, from global companies such as CAE, General Dynamics and BAE Systems to Thales, and Airbus Defence to name a few.
  • Win international business
  • Raise the profile of your company
  • Align your brand with current military requirements
  • 75% of our visitors are involved in the purchasing process

Private Business Meeting Suites

CADSI is pleased to offer private business meeting suites located on the exhibit floor at CANSEC 2017. Private business meeting suites are a new and innovative option to traditional exhibit space from your main exhibit. They can also meet the business-to-business requirements for those companies that choose not to exhibit.
