DEMO International ® To Be Postponed to 2022


An important message to DEMO International® exhibitors:

First and foremost, we hope that you are doing well, and that business has started to return to some sense of normality; COVID-19 has had an overwhelming and profound impact on people’s health, livelihoods and travel over the past year. As you recall, the pandemic prompted the decision last spring to postpone Demo International originally scheduled for 2020 with new scheduled dates of September 16-18, 2021.

The Demo International management team has been actively engaged in reviewing and discussing the circumstances around the pandemic and the likelihood/feasibility of executing the show in 2021. As part of the due diligence process, including developments related to the vaccine roll-out, travel restrictions, public confidence and health protocols etc., the management team also solicited existing Demo exhibitors for their insight and feedback in order to help the team consider the options and make the best decision moving forward. Based on their assessment and recommendation, the Canadian Woodlands Forum in partnership with our host SBC Cedar & show partners, have made the difficult decision to postpone DEMO International until September 22 – 24, 2022.

As disappointing that this decision is, it was made in the best interest of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors; and with DEMO International always drawing a large international crowd, as well as people from all parts of Canada, it was felt that conditions would continue to improve throughout the year, and that 2022 would offer a safer environment and ensure a successful show.  

Based on the optimistic responses from the exhibitor survey outlining support for a 2022 show, we have determined the September 22 – 24, 2022 window works best for all parties involved. All suppliers are being informed of the change.

We will continue to update all exhibitors and look forward to working with you towards a successful event in 2022. 

Thank you and stay safe.
