News CANASA Update Opinion
Full speed ahead for Security Canada

Following last December’s successful virtual event, CANASA is preparing for a spring showcase

March 30, 2021  By Patrick Straw

With 1,300 attendees from across the country, our 2020 virtual trade show was such a huge success that we’re bringing you another one this spring.

Security Canada Virtual — Spring 2021 will take place June 9-10, and planning is well underway.

It’s been a tough year for the association as the majority of our revenue comes from our shows. By exhibiting at Security Canada, you not only reap the rewards of connecting with our members across the country but you also support the Canadian Security Association (CANASA) and the Canadian security industry at the same time.

This is the only show in Canada that brings the entire security industry together, so mark your calendars and stay tuned. Here’s what some of our industry leaders had to say about our last virtual show.


“CANASA delivers a quality show with the ability to learn, network, find new solutions. I look forward to this show each year.” — Rick Snook, ASIS International and Axis Communications

“As my first virtual show, I found the experience very educational, and actually more interactive than I had anticipated. Security Canada Virtual exceeded expectations. Was a real pleasure to see customers and colleagues that I haven’t been able to meet/see in quite some time.” — Dan Small, Armstrong’s National Alarm Monitoring

“I thank everyone that was behind the scenes to make this an informative and enjoyable experience.” — Carmine Panaro, Reilly Lock and Security Systems

“Security Canada was a success! They did a great job of putting together a show for professionals to network and see new products, despite the pandemic.” — Tom Bennett, True Steel Security

We look forward to seeing all of our vendor partners and exhibitors and thank them for their continued support. To book a booth, contact Steve Basnett, sbasnett@canasa.org.
