Salon national de l'éducation de Montréal
Place Bonaventure

A vision that has been evolving for more nearly 30 years

This year, the largest recruitment and career promotion event in Canada is presented in two stages. The National Education Fair and The Study and Stay Abroad Fair, which are intended to young people and adults, are presented jointly and are preceded by The National Job Fair, which is intended to adults. For 18 years, the three fairs form the largest gathering in Canada dedicated to education, vocational training, college and university study programs, career guidance, exploration of trades and professions, career choice and international mobility for young people and adults, as well as employment, continuing education and employment assistance and career development services for adults. In 2023, the event welcomed 433 exhibitors and more than 36,000 visitors combined in an incomparable atmosphere on a combined exhibition space of 127,700 square feet.

Changes and new features in 2024 to support
the development and growth of The National Education Fair


New location, new exhibition hall, new administration, same dynamism!


Palais des congrès de Montréal | October 17-18, 2024


Be at the next edition of The National Education Fair, which will be presented for the first time at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, on October 17-18, 2024. This change of location follows the closure of the Olympic Stadium for major renovation work announced by the government last February.


The INEO Team, which has organized The National Education Fair since its first edition in 1996, is also handing over the reins to that of Group Contex, which will now ensure its management and organization. INEO thus becomes the newest business unit of Group Contex, a Canadian leader in the organization of trade fairs, conferences and training programs as well as a publisher of high-profile publications and websites, whose head office is located in Montreal.


Exceptionally this year, The National Education Fair and The Study & Stay Abroad Fair will be presented separately from The National Job Fair, which will take place on October 2-3, also at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. The distinct presentation of the fairs is circumstantial due to the limited availability of exhibition facilities in Montreal, particularly this year following the closure of the Olympic Stadium.


The National Education Fair, The Study & Stay Abroad Fair and The National Job Fair are now events proudly presented by Group Contex, as well as the Salon de l’emploi et de la formation continue, also owned by Group Contex since 2022.




All exhibitors will soon be able to begin confirming their participation in the 2024 edition with the official opening of the Exhibitor Registration Period, which will be announced shortly. Any organization interested in participating is invited to complete the BECOME AN EXHIBITOR information sheet on the website at any time to receive the registration kit by email with the necessary information and access to the Registration Form.


It will be a pleasure to have you among the exhibitors at The National Education this fall. Welcome to the 2024 edition!



The National Education Fair allows young people and adults to explore multiple postsecondary training programs and career choices under one roof for two days. The National Education Fair is a great opportunity to meet and exchange face-to-face with representatives from training and education facilities and professionals from various sector of activities.




Proud contributor to perseverance and success

Since 1996, more than 575,000 young people and adults have been able to
define or confirm their academic and professional aspirations by visiting
