Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) hosted several live days at the SaskTrade Showcase earlier in 2021. Please stay tuned for more live days in the near future. The Showcase is an innovative virtual trade show highlighting products and services from Saskatchewan’s world-class suppliers. With over 2,300 attendees from 80+ different countries, the first few events were a great opportunity for international buyers to connect with Saskatchewan exporters. Until the live days start again, you may browse the exhibit halls and view 34 informative and engaging webinars on emerging industry trends and technologies.
The SaskTrade Virtual Showcase will remain open to registered users outside of the live event times listed above. Please note the exhibition booths will not have a representative available to live chat with you outside of the live event times.
You will be able to engage with representatives from more than 250 different Saskatchewan suppliers of new and innovative products and services. Please visit the live sessions as well as the interactive booths in the various exhibition halls.
Product and service suppliers for the following industries will be exhibiting: Agricultural Commodities, Value Added Food Products, Agricultural Equipment, Energy, Oil & Gas, Mining Supply & Services, Technology, Advanced Manufactured & Professional Services
Yes. Like a physical event, we will have a swag bag for you! You can add all of the documents available to the online swag bag in your account and then email them to yourself or share items with your colleagues simply by entering their email.
Before a live day, we recommend scheduling a meeting in advance by going to a booth and clicking “Reserve a Chat.” During this meeting, you can communicate by typing in the chat room or using the video call function. In periods where the platform is static, you can contact an exhibitor by going to their website.
Once a live day is announced, you can log in and set up a meeting once you are registered.
