Addressing the limitations and gaps in stakeholder awareness and engagement.


This year's CCGA Damage Prevention Symposium in Niagara Falls will feature a Damage Prevention Theatre situated among exhibitor booths on the exhibitor floor. The theatre will hold breakout sessions throughout the conference, creating considerable foot-traffic on the exhibit floor, and offers sponsorship opportunities promoting your brand.

Cet événement mettra l’accent sur les enjeux cruciaux propres aux parties prenantes canadiennes. Ce sera l’occasion idéale de faire du réseautage avec vos homologues de partout au Canada pour partager des idées et des connaissances communes.


Réduire les limites et les lacunes des efforts de sensibilisation auprès des intervenants.


Le symposium du CCGA sur la prévention des dommages qui aura lieu à Niagara Falls mettra en vedette un théâtre dédié à la prévention des dommages. Ce théâtre sera situé parmi les kiosques au niveau de la salle d’expositions. C’est dans ce théâtre qu’auront lieu les séances en atelier tout au long du symposium. Cela créera de l’achalandage dans la salle d’expositions et, par le fait même, une occasion idéale pour promouvoir votre entreprise par le biais de commandites.
