Join us in Edmonton as event professionals from across Canada and beyond gather for 3 days to make new friends and gain access to our industry’s global thought-leaders and resources.

We are expecting a participation of 800 of our industry’s finest from all corners of the continent. See you there!

Their approach to programming and education is unlike anything I’ve seen at any other conference I’ve spoken at.

& Sponsoring

GO WEST is the only large-scale event for event professionals held annually west of Toronto. This is your opportunity to showcase your brand and offerings to 800 event professionals from across Canada and beyond. Our direct marketing reaches over 6,000 event professionals and our social media channels reach thousands more. We are looking for partners who will engage with us in this initiative – who will immerse themselves and have an ongoing prevalence before, during and after the event.


THE EXPERIENTIAL HALL is one of our most popular and engaging components of GO WEST. It is built around a tradeshow that we have kept affordable, constrained within a short time frame and highly targeted at buying event professionals. Our tradeshow for GO WEST 2020 will have 100 exhibit booths.


Let’s discuss ideas and build a sponsorship program to market your brand and offerings and maximize your return on investment. We love talking ideas and finding impactful ways for you to engage with our community of event professionals.

GO WEST is the perfect spot to reach event professionals that are brave enough to think different.
