CMTC produces a four-day convention in Toronto which consists of modelling, acting, singing, and dancing competitions, educational workshops and seminars, an awards ceremony, and callback/interview opportunities with modelling and talent agents, scouts, managers, casting directors, and record labels. The industry reps that attend CMTC judge competitions and conduct seminars while also searching for new models and talent to work in the modelling and entertainment industries.
Why do new models and talent have such a hard time breaking into the industry? Clients and casting directors want to book models and talent that have experience! CMTC allows new face models and talent to gain industry experience and build their resume through competitions and events.
At CMTC, you will meet over seventy of the world’s top modelling and talent agents, scouts, managers, producers, record labels, and casting directors! You’ll also maximize your opportunities by meeting different types of agencies – fashion, commercial, catalogue, editorial, plus-size, fitness, actors, agents, artist managers, and more. CMTC makes the connection between new faces and the top career-makers of the modelling and entertainment industries.
“CMTC was what started my professional modelling career. I walked in thinking I would just have fun and was not expecting anything from it. I had no confidence in myself and thought I wouldn’t get a single callback. I had a great weekend and enjoyed myself so much. On Sunday, I went to attend callbacks and had 30 callbacks from top agencies from all over the world! You can only imagine my excitement and my family’s reaction!! I was so overwhelmed. Thankfully the lovely President of CMTC Audra Anderson assisted me and my family in navigating my callbacks and career choices. Attending CMTC was the best career decision I have ever made. Following CMTC I signed with Mode Elle as my Mother Agency, Elite in Toronto, Women in New York, MP in Paris, Milan Chicago & Miami and Bravo in Tokyo. A career highlight for me so far is walking for Dolce and Gabbana during Milan Fashion Week. If I didn’t go to CMTC I would 100% not be where I am today. I owe it ALL to CMTC. My life changed within 4 of the best days of my life. In one year I have travelled internationally to Tokyo, Paris, NYC, Milan, and Chicago! I can’t express how much love and support I have for CMTC.”
“CMTC provides the incredibly rare opportunity for aspiring talent to meet with the top international agents in the industry. To have that chance as you’re entering the business is so valuable and opens doors that otherwise might never be made available.”
“Going to CMTC opened the door to opportunities for my daughter Ava and it was absolutely worth it!!! Ava had so much fun showcasing her talents, dancing at the theme parties, and meeting new friends!”
