Convenience Innovation Awards

The Convenience Innovation Awards (CIA) is a platform for recognizing top product development in the convenience industry. The program provides a benchmark for leading innovation.

As an industry, the convenience channel is constantly evolving and needs innovation to grow and prosper. Supporting those who invest in this channel is very important to the Convenience Industry Council of Canada.

Participating in the Convenience Innovation Awards program will provide a multitude of benefits from increased visibility and industry recognition. Attendees of the National Convenience Industry Summit, including retail and distributor member senior executives, will be the judges through an on-site voting process.
