March 22-25, 2021
100 of Canada’s most exciting media companies–which just happen to be owned by women.

MEDIA LEADERS - BREAKTHROUGH CREATORS - GLOBAL BUYERS

Spark Showcase is an interactive online networking platform, database, and community that enables potential partners to find, meet, and forge new business opportunities with the best women-owned Canadian companies: participants of the BANFF Spark Accelerator for Women in the Business of Media program.

Spark Showcase Week (March 22-25, 2021) is a real time virtual marketplace that will directly connect members of the community through a series of interactive sessions, meetings, and pitching events.

The curated BANFF Spark companies featured in Spark Showcase represent key media industry sectors–from content production and talent representation, to tech and innovation, to distribution and marketing, and everywhere in between. Of these companies, 38% of participants self-identify as being Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBTQ2S+, or professionals with disabilities.

Learn more about these game-changing companies, take meetings with the women who own them, and find out how you can work together, all through Spark Showcase.

Interested in joining the Spark Showcase community to connect with the BANFF Spark companies and attend Showcase Week? Participation is by invitation only. Please submit a registration request.
