As we welcome summer in Canada, the Promotional Products Professionals of Canada (PPPC) gear up for our most significant and most popular event, the 64th annual National Convention (NATCON 2022), celebrating our community of professionals. We invite you to mark your calendars for Sept. 13-15, 2022, at the International Centre, Toronto, so you can plan to attend!

NATCON 2022 will be the perfect way to kick off North America’s Q4 sales season–the biggest season for the promotional products industry. We encourage everyone to join us at NATCON, whether your company is in the Canada or the U.S., at Toronto’s International Centre for this exciting event. This year, our event theme is #TogetherAgain, focusing on the importance of connection and developing and nurturing strategic relationships with in-person events after two long years.

Toronto is one of Canada’s top destinations in September: With warm temperatures, autumn colours, and the best the country offers in arts, culture, dining and tourism, Canada’s largest urban centre will not disappoint. And with easy direct flight access from all major US cities, Toronto is just a stone’s throw away!

The three-day event will include:

Held every September, this event welcomes thousands of distributors and their clients and 100-plus exhibiting suppliers. NATCON is now accepting exhibitors’ applications, which are available for download at

This year, we will see the much-awaited PPPC Awards also come back to the in-person celebration. Sept. 14 will bring the PPPC community together to celebrate its people’s achievement over delicious food, drinks and entertainment.

Speakers from all over the country deliver sessions on topics relevant and beneficial to our members and the industry every year at the professional development sessions.

Come network, socialize and celebrate. Don’t miss this exciting industry event to see the latest and greatest products for Q4 and energize your team for the holiday sales season while enjoying all that Toronto offers this September!
