Interested in hosting a future convention? 

The COPA Convention and Tradeshow is the aviation event of the year for Canada’s general aviation community. We alternate each year between Eastern and Western Canada.

The 2018 convention will be held in Saint John, NB (CYSJ) and around the Quebec City area in 2020.  We are currently soliciting proposals for conventions in 2019 and beyond.

The Guide to Organizing COPA’s Convention provides guidance on the required components of the convention and some tips on hosting a successful event.
