Convention – 2020, 2021 & 2022

Notice about the COVID-19 Pandemic

The CSMMI Executive has cancelled the Annual 2-Day Show for June 19 & 20, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The health and well-being of our community remains our top priority and we advise everyone to follow the recommendations and requirements of Public Health Organizations, the Government of Canada, and the Province of Ontario.  Please practice hand washing, personal hygiene, disinfection cleaning, and comply with social distancing and self-isolation requirements.
All prepaid registrations and table rentals will be refunded.  We thank everyone for their assistance as we all work through this challenge.

2021 Annual Show Cancelled

The CSMMI had planned to host the Annual Show in September 2021, however the third wave of COVID-19 cases has forced the Provincial Government to declare a State of Emergency and introduce new lockdown measures to control the spread.  As a result, organizations are not permitted to hold indoor events.  The CSMMI is planning host the 2022 Annual 2-Day Show on June 17 & 18, 2022.  Please save the date.  Details will be released when we learn more about the province's rules about holding indoor events.
Thank you for your understanding.  Please keep well and stay safe.


The 2020 & 2021 Conventions are Cancelled!

2019 Convention Labelled a Success!

The 2019 Annual 2-Day Show and Convention was a great success.  Organizers reported attendance was up over last year and vendors reported both days had good sales and trades.  A contributing factor was the Jeffrey Hoare Military Auction held on the Saturday.  The organizers from both the CSMMI convention and the Jeffrey Hoare auction reported attendance was up due to the synergy of the two events.  

Thanks to all visitors and our vendors for making this a great event.  And special thanks to the event organizers and the Burlington Holiday Inn for taking care of  all the details.
