SAVE THE DATE!

Dress code: Dressy Casual

The COPA Stars Gala is held each year on the third Thursday in November. This event brings together the Canadian OP industry’s luminaries as we honour the winners of our Awards Program and raise proceeds for the COPA Scholarship Fund.

To ensure our members get the most out of the night, the Gala format has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind networking event where you can sit down (or stand up) with key people in the OP industry whose calendars are otherwise full. Guests are free to move around the room throughout the night and connect with their colleagues and meet new faces. Name badges are used to facilitate the networking process (we apologize in advance if they clash with your outfit!).

Each year the Stars Gala features the most delicious assortment of foods, fully catered by Peter and Paul’s and served up at thoughtfully placed stations around the room. Fresh sushi, sizzling stir-fry, zesty fajitas, tender roast beef, delectable cheeses and cold cuts, and sensational funnel cake are all prepared fresh in front of you! And that doesn’t include the passed hors d’oeuvres that can include anything from lollipop lamb chops to sliders. The abundant food is accompanied by an open bar to keep you hydrated throughout the evening. One thing for sure, you will not leave this event hungry!

I had a really nice time at the COPA Awards gala and was able to connect with some great people.
Always good to learn what other companies are doing on the sustainability front and share best practices.
Also thank you to COPA for recognizing Staples Business Advantage with the Corporate Social Responsibility Leadership Award – Leading with Intention.
