Every year there has been some kind of dog show at the Tradex that I have personally enjoyed as my dogs have been entered. Another great event is the Woman's Exposition that happens yearly. For a about $10, you can enjoy this hosting venue that is just minutes away from the Abbotsford Airport. So convenient if you are from out... More

Visited tradex to see the pet show with my wife , daughter and 4 grandchildren. The show was well done and well attended. Lots of great exhibits. Little bit of an attitude with the lady taking the passes at the door. Tended to be abrupt and non considerate. After getting by her. All was good.

I was lucky enough to win tickets to the show, so it only cost the $6 for parking. Huge crowds with lots of kids on Friday night. I overheard dealers comparing how many RVs they had sold that night (one was 8 and one was 10) so it seems to be the place to make a deal. Not a lot... More

Tradex did a pretty good job with the West Coast Women's Show, but there were a few glitches. The vendors were concentrated into types, which created huge lineups at the food vendors, and left "holes" at other places. I think a strategic mix would have been better. The parking outside was not the best organized. It looked like too many... More

I've come here to perform for Tradex's Christmas show and I've never had an issue with parking or feeling cramped! If you ever find out about events being held here, head on over!

Attended the RV show and found the facility and staff quite acceptable. Concession was a little slow though and I did overhear the couple next to me complain about the price and a possible error. Mine was fine though, and the soup was delicious.

When this event is on -it is very put together. People working the tickets to floor plans to shows is quite managed and controlled to ensure that you will enjoy all that is being offered for three days. Lots of information,products of all kinds,health and beauty booths-some hands on ie massages,wraps etc.
