What people say About us

  • I've done far too many dealer trade shows over the past 20+ years, but I've done enough of them to know what a tremendous effort it requires to do one properly. You and your team have done it properly. It was organized with surgical precision, and we had plenty of help when we needed it. Thank you for your efforts and your support. I am looking forward to the mutual benefit ProFusion will bring us both.

    Len Donovan

    Key Accounts Manager NE and SE, Camera Dynamics, Inc.,The Vitec Group Videocom Division
  • I can honestly say I think it was probably the best run show that I have ever been involved with. We also had some fantastic interest in our product and sold out the show stock several times which was phenomenal for us.

    Rod Aaron Director, Rotolight, Pinewood Studios

  • I have received about 20 letters from students who took one of my programs and all of them were extremely positive. The entire experience was exceptional and you can definitely count me in again for next year.

A meeting of minds

From day one, the purpose of ProFusion has not only been to showcase the latest and greatest of everything photographic, but also to nurture Canada's thriving imaging industry and salute its loyal members. Today, ProFusion is still the only photo and video event in Canada that caters exclusively to established and emerging image-makers. It remains the best and only show of its kind, bringing together like-minded people who share a love of photography in all its forms and the amazing equipment that makes it happen. It's a chance for us to acknowledge, inform and inspire one another.

A tradition of excellence

Every year, ProFusion gets bigger and better, and this year will be no different. We've been doing this for a decade now and will continue to showcase the very best of everything going forward. You'll always be the first to witness exclusive product launches, get hands-on demonstrations of exciting new features and meet manufacturers of your favourite brands face to face. And wait till you see how much you can save on select products, thanks to incredible Show Specials that make this an event no one can afford to miss.

Back by popular demand

It's unanimous. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre has so far proven itself to be the hands-down favourite venue for ProFusion. You'll find us at a conveniently central location, easy to get to by car or transit, and the spacious facilities are easy to navigate. We're staging this year's ProFusion at the MTCC again in a large open space that's directly accessible from Front Street. We look forward to welcoming you to ProFusion 2019. We know you'll feel right at home here.
