Reconnect and rebuild relationships with
Western Canada’s largest women’s show audience.

Meet face-to-face and build year-round relationships with over 26,000 show visitors.

April 1, 2 & 3, 2022  |  November 4, 5 & 6, 2022  |  TRADEX, Abbotsford

Welcoming back our exhibitors

To say that we have missed the show, our exhibitors, and our show visitors would be an understatement. As a family-run business we recognise the difficulties that businesses across the province have faced since the first COVID-19 restrictions were introduced some 470 days ago.

With better days now ahead, we are beyond excited to announce that the 20th Annual West Coast Women’s Show is returning with two shows in 2022 — April 1, 2 & 3 and November 4, 5 & 6.

We can’t wait to reconnect with our 375 exhibitors and 26,000 show visitors next April, and everyone on our show team is excited about getting back to business with a very special 20th annual celebration year for the show.

The pent-up demand for events is at an all-time high with exhibitors chomping at the bit to get back to business, and show visitors eager to resume the activities they love. COVID-19 has sharply highlighted just how much we value face-to-face connections.

Each year over 26,000 women come to shop, enjoy and discover the latest products and services, explore new ways to stay healthy, see and buy the latest fashions, manage their businesses and finances, look for new career opportunities, taste the latest food products, learn about nutrition and most of all connect and build year-round relationships with our 375+ exhibitors.

Massive, pent-up demand for events

"Big events are back. After an 18-month hiatus, concerts, festivals, sports, and other big events are expected to return to their pre-pandemic glory."

"There’s a pent-up demand, a desire to get out there and enjoy life that you might just see tickets sales go crazy...People are just chomping at the bit to be released from the restrictions."

"Strong demand is proving that fans are eager to get back to the experiences they love — it feels like every week we have another event breaking a record."

"On the Post-Pandemic Horizon, Could That Be...a Boom? Signs of economic life are picking up, and mounds of cash are waiting to be spent as the virus loosens its grip."

"Our festivals have been selling out faster than ever before. Our amphitheater business is ramping up quickly and leading into this fall and ’22, we expect to be our largest years ever."

"The Market Sure Thinks Live Events Are Coming Back Strong — Surveys show 95 percent of fans signaled enthusiasm to return to concert venues when restrictions are lifted, and artists are chomping at the bit to resume performing in front of live audiences."

"We are very optimistic that healthy consumer fundamentals, pent-up demand and widespread distribution of the vaccine will generate increased economic growth, retail sales and consumer spending."
