The demand for new models/talent is continually growing in every major national and international market. However, methods of discovering new models/talent in a country as large as Canada are severely limited. Furthermore, substantial investments of time and money are required for major agencies to scout in smaller regional centres. As a result, aspiring models/talent from small regional centres experience even more of an obstacle because their direct exposure to experience and industry opportunities is greatly reduced. It is often the case that aspiring models/talent have the desire and potential for a career in the modelling and entertainment industries, but are not given the opportunity to be discovered by agents, scouts, managers, and casting directors.
CMTC was developed in 1991 to help create the right time and place for models/talent to be educated and showcased. For over 28 years CMTC has helped aspiring models/actors overcome four key obstacles associated with breaking into the modelling and entertainment industries:
(1) travelling to major industry markets individually or
(2) attending similar events in the U.S.
Travelling to major markets such as New York New York, Los Angeles, Paris, or Milan to meet with agents would cost you thousands of dollars for your flight, accommodations, meals, and other traveling expenses. Travelling to the U.S. and attending a similar convention could also prove quite costly. Indeed, registration fees at similar events in the U.S. are often in excess of $2500 U.S.D. In contrast, CMTC provides an affordable venue to be discovered by bringing national and international agents to you.
