April 4, 2017

Discovery 2016 has been named Best Trade Show/Exposition in Canada.

Discovery 2016 has been named Best Trade Show/Exposition in Canada at the 20th annual Canadian Event Industry Awards, described as “the highest award Canadian event professionals can earn and a globally recognized symbol of excellence.” 

This is the third Canadian Event Industry Award won by OCE for Discovery since 2010. Discovery has also been awarded “Best Meeting/Conference Program (Over $250,000)” in 2012 by the International Live Events Association. 

Produced by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), Discovery is Canada’s premier innovation conference and trade show and last year attracted more than 3,500 attendees and more than 500 exhibitors. 

“Our ultimate goal is to provide Ontario’s innovation community with an event experience that is extremely valuable and motivating,” says Dr. Tom Corr, President and CEO of OCE. “Every year we attempt to raise the bar on the previous year’s Discovery in designing an event that celebrates our province’s most creative and accomplished companies and entrepreneurs and that stimulates ideas to propel the next wave of innovation.” 

Discovery 2017 takes place May 15-16 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. To learn more or to register, please visit
