To our Mode community,
We want to thank you very much. You, our exhibitors, attendees, readers and supporters are what has made our jobs a pleasure despite the ups and downs of 2020.
This year has been challenging and filled with uncertainties for all of us. Challenges seem to inspire new and exciting opportunities. We at Mode have been working hard designing and planning for 2021.
We are excited to announce that we will continue with our August show, from August 8-10, 2021 at The International Centre, 6900 Airport Road, Mississauga, ON.
Our team looks forward to connecting again with You, our community. We will continue to work hard building our face-to-face show, our virtual showroom (allowing companies and retailers to connect and do business) and to build our newsletter to be your resource year round.
Thanks to your support and the resilience of our team we’ve made it through 2020! We know 2021 won’t be without its challenges but together we can make it a great year.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year. We look forward to connecting in 2021!
Please note, our office will be closed over the holidays from December 18 to January 1 and will reopen Monday, January 4.

January 2021 Mode Show Cancelled
Delivering a safe and successful Mode Show is our top priority. After conversations with the Ontario government, Ontario venues and suppliers, as well as industry colleagues, it has become clear that we will not be able to run the Mode Show in January 2021.
We understand the disappointment with cancelling our January 2021 show, as we had hopes of bringing the industry together and getting back to business. We looked into postponing the January show to late Q1 of 2021, however, that will not be feasible with the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and with the lack of approval and lifting of restrictions from the Ontario government as they continue to prohibit tradeshows and events of more than 50 people.
New 2021 dates will be announced soon.
We are committed to doing everything we can to support our clients during the absence of shows. We are also committed to making the next Mode Show in 2021 a coming together of the fashion industry in Canada with exhibitors and buyers alike.

During this past week, and based on consultation, it has become clear that doing so will not be possible. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the August 2020 Mode Show to October 18 – 20, 2020 at The International Centre. Read our announcement here.
