A calendar of upcoming events to support Alberta's job creators to expand their exports.

Use the calendar below to find events for export-ready, Alberta-based companies to find new businesses opportunities and to diversify into different markets. The filter above the calendar allows you to sort by industry, type of events, and domestic vs. international events.

To support Alberta companies to start or grow their international exports, department staff facilitate attendance at international trade events abroad, also known as a mission. These missions provide an opportunity to assess market opportunities, meet potential buyers, and support partnerships. 

How You Can Participate

If your company is looking to export a product or service abroad and think you may benefit from attending a mission, please look at the event list below and contact us. These events fill up very quickly so the earlier you reach out, the more likely we will have space available for your participation. When reaching out please provide information on the following: 

  • A description of the company, including your relevant goods and services.
  • The markets you have exported to, along with ones of interest.
  • The outcomes you hope to achieve by attending the mission (i.e., display your goods or services at a booth).
  • If you would like to participate in the Alberta Export Expansion Program.
