Save the Date! The CanWaCH Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange!
On April 28-29, 2020, join us at the scenic 50 Sussex Events in Ottawa for a one-of-a-kind event to advance and showcase Canada’s innovative leadership in global health and gender equality. Brought to you by CanWaCH, the Global Health Impact Expo + Exchange is a dynamic, fast-paced, multi-faceted exposition that will showcase the work of and strengthen connections between CanWaCH members, Global Affairs Canada, and other domestic and international partners working to advance global health and development.
Take on a leading role and profile at this unique and inspiring event by becoming a partnering organization. We also invite you to tell us why your exhibit or installation should be featured at the Expo. Applications to Exhibit will be accepted until December 20, 2019. Plus, if you’re a small or medium-sized NGO currently with no capacity to exhibit, apply to our SMO Exhibit Development Competition.
