Student Life Summit Showcases at a glance

Expose your act to the Canadian college and university market

Founded in 1982, the Canadian Organization of Campus Activities (COCA) is the only association dedicated purely to campus activities in Canada.

The COCA 2022 Student Life Summit provides an excellent opportunity for colleges & universities, booking agencies, and self-represented artists to network, showcase, exhibit, and conduct business. More than 20 showcase opportunities are available in various categories.

The Student Life Summit is the place to be to get in front of Canadian campus activities programmers! More than 100 student and staff buyers (“school member” delegates) from approximately 45 schools across the country are expected to attend the 2022 Student Life Summit in Ottawa from June 2 - 12, 2022.  In addition, more than 70 “associate member” delegates representing over 40 companies and artists will host exhibit booths in the Campus Activities Biz Hall; COCA’s annual Trade Show.

An Artist that is selected to showcase must become a COCA Associate Member or be represented by a company that is, or will become, a COCA Associate Member. All selected showcase acts must be represented in the trade show either by the act itself or by a company representing the act. Associate Membership (1-year) and Associate Registration forms are available on-line via the COCA Website. 

Attention Canadian Artists: There are a number of organizations such as FACTOR and provincial music industry associations that assist music artists with travel expenses involved with showcasing at "contact" events such as the Student Life Summit. You can find links to some of these organizations here
