About Us


Canwest Productions was created in 2011 as a partnership between Peter Kiddell, Terra Connors and Kevin Blackburn. All 3 were instrumental in the success of the former Canwest Shows (founded in 1997)

Founded on the principle of finding business for customers, our size and history dictate the strength and advantage of our media buying and promotions, along with employing a full time Media Relations & Marketing expert.

We are a full service, integrated event management and marketing solutions team,  and we have the skills & resources necessary to ensure that your event is successful, effective & memorable.

Canwest Productions annually spends almost one third of its Gross Revenue on advertising and promotion.
We are focused on generating business for our customers - our success depends on yours!


Canwest Productions brings you the experience and knowledge of a leading integrated Show company, as we are the largest independent Show Producer in Western Canada. From show conception to opening day,all details are handled in house to minimize any possible delays and problems.
