Event Description




The 2018 CCA National Convention & Tradeshow is Canada’s largest chiropractic show, bringing together chiropractic clinicians, researchers, chiropractic stakeholders, and exhibitors around the theme of A Better Approach to Pain Management – Chiropractic Care Changes Pain. The convention will be held at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre in Calgary, Alberta on April 27–29, 2018. In addition to meeting some of the best exhibitors in North America on our tradeshow floor, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in Workshops, Intensive, Breakout and Keynote sessions, a Chiropractic Assistant (CA) focused business management educational stream, as well as social and networking events.

This event has been designed for you and your support staff not only to learn but to be re-energized in chiropractic care. Registration for the 2018 CCA National Convention & Tradeshow includes food and non-alcoholic beverages during the scheduled convention and tradeshow hours! We have also secured special reduced hotel rates at the Calgary Marriott Downtown and Hyatt Regency Hotels conveniently located next to and connected with the Calgary Telus Convention Centre, along with discounts on air travel with WestJet.

We are thrilled to announce that our opening keynote speaker is Scott Stratten, President of UnMarketing and named by Forbes as one of the top five social media influencers in the world.  Energy, passion, knowledge and humour is just some of what Scott brings to his audience. Bridging the business gap between the virtual and real world, Scott’s keynote not only gets people laughing and thinking, but also doing. All the honest truth in this age of disruption and interruption.

“An eye-opener of why, and how, we need to start shifting our marketing weight from the broadcast leg to the dialogue leg. And it doesn’t hurt one bit that he made it the funniest
and most entertaining presentation we all sat through all year.”

Tom Moradpour, PepsiCo, International Marketing Director, Pepsi

Our closing keynote features an interview and Q&A with Canadian Olympic Silver and Bronze Medal winner Andre De Grasse and his chiropractor, Dr. Alban Merepeza.  Hear Andre speak about how chiropractic has made an impact on his performance as an elite athlete, and the role that Dr. Merepeza plays in his success as part of his medical team.  Following the interview, there will be a meet and greet where you can shake hands with the champion!

As part of the networking and fun, attendees and exhibitors are also invited to join us on Friday at our Happy Hour to officially open the tradeshow, the Kick-Off Reception following Scott Stratten’s opening keynote, and the CCA Awards Brunch on Sunday before André De Grasse and Dr. Merepeza’s keynote presentation. We also have our signature Denim and Diamonds social event the evening of April 28 at a Calgary institution, the iconic Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall (ticketed separately).

This event-packed weekend will bring our profession together for inspiration, passion, networking, knowledge transfer, and some fun! Mark your calendars. Bring your peers, business associates, classmates, and family members, and plan on making the CCA National Convention and Tradeshow the most celebrated chiropractic event of 2018! We look forward to welcoming you and your staff in celebrating our great profession and the many lives we can impact with chiropractic care.
