Information for Sponsors and Exhibitors

We encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media to receive news about the program and other important conference information.

Securing a Booth

Sponsors and exhibitors can review the prospectus online and purchase their booth directly through the payment portal. Once payment has been made, CBIE will follow up with more details including the Exhibitor Portal details.  


CBIE accepts payment by VISA, Mastercard, cheque, and wire transfer. Payment instructions can be found in the payment portal.

Additional Space

This year CBIE is offering sponsors and exhibitors the opportunity to purchase additional booth space at a 50% discount, subject to availability. We encourage you to purchase additional space when you purchase your booth.  

Exhibitor Portal

Logistics, inclusions, and information are all coordinated via the Exhibitor Portal. Once you are a confirmed exhibitor or a sponsor, you will be sent an Exhibitor Portal welcome email with login instructions.   

Exhibitor Tasks

Exhibitor Tasks are listed and can be completed within the Exhibitor Portal. These tasks allow exhibitors to submit to CBIE the necessary information to promote each organization. Failure to complete these tasks by the deadlines may result in a delay or your entitlements being unfulfilled.  

Graphics and Logos

Sponsors are required to submit logos and ad graphics to CBIE via the Exhibitor Portal. Please ensure you submit your logo and graphics as PNG, EPS or AI.  

Exhibition Floorplan

The CBIE2023 Exhibition Hall will be located in the West Building, Ballroom C + D of the Vancouver Convention Centre. Exhibitors will select their booth location based on the order in which they have made their purchase, with premium booth locations being reserved for our Title, Platinum, and Diamond sponsors. The floorplan will be available in May.  

Promotion Toolkit

To help you promote your participation at CBIE2023 we will provide web banners and images you can display in your email signature, on your website, and social media. The toolkit will be available in August. 

Exhibitor Services

CBIE2023 has partnered with Global Convention Services to coordinate logistics for the Exhibition Hall. The full Exhibitor Kit will be available in the fall.

Food + Beverage for Sampling

All food distributed within the convention center must be approved by the convention center food services department. For more information about ordering food and beverage at your booth, please contact CBIE.

Delegate Lists

All sponsors and exhibitors will receive the delegate list two weeks prior to the conference. Name, title, institution and email address will be included in the list. Due to the Canada Anti-Spam Law (CASL), CBIE requires delegates to opt into this mailing list when registering for the conference. Only those who have expressed consent will be included in the delegate list.
