“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.”

"The CMTC Convention surpassed our expectations! Neither of us had a clue what the modelling world was like, but we attended the convention to hopefully find out. The agents who gave seminars spoke honestly about how hard this career is, what kind of effort it requires, and how to get involved in it. Jayden grew in her confidence over the weekend and we both really enjoyed the experience."

"Our daughter Vanessa had an amazing, first-time experience at CMTC 2019! Aside from making some very strategic industry contacts she won multiple runner-up awards in categories for Cover Photo, Runway and Kids Casting. And to top it all off, she was very privileged and honoured to have been awarded with the CMTC 2019 - Grand Overall Child Model of the Year! Thank you CMTC for making this life changing event a dream come true."

"The 2019 CMTC was the second time our daughter attended the conference. We both deeply enjoyed our time at CMTC2019. The conference is an amazing opportunity for new talent to learn from the best in the business and helps to build those vital connections for future opportunities. There is so much information that is provided within the workshops that you will learn something to help your portfolio, your brand, your network, etc. Finally, the friendships that we made while at the conference will indelibly support this journey that our daughter is on. If you are interested in acting, modelling, singing, or dance, CTMC is an amazing venue for you to show and develop your craft, and figure out how to best position yourself in a very competitive arena. I highly recommend CMTC. I have no doubt we will be attending a future conference."

"All the way from Calgary, Alberta all we wanted was to give that kind of experience to Allysha, and what CMTC brings to her (as its her very first time in the convention). We never expect anything that Allysha will makes us all proud! CMTC is a life experience that she will never forget! And, we as well! CMTC has given Allysha and all the participants the chance to showcase their own personalities and most especially their talents! CMTC has brought Allysha to meet Talent Managers, Agents and scouts face to face during Callbacks, (who we only see some of them on TV!) She feels like a celebrity at some point in her whole week with CMTC! We will share our experiences to everyone about CMTC! THANK YOU SO MUCH CMTC! THANK YOU TO ALL the judges, talent scouts, managers and agents!"

"I attended CMTC 2019 with my 16 year old daughter, Stephanie. What an event! All 4 days were well organized and so much fun. The CMTC staff were always welcoming and extremely friendly. In the Information sessions/Workshops the speakers were engaging and provided a fun learning environment. Stephanie also participated in many of the competitions and loved all of them. She now has even more confidence, knowledge and tools to apply to her Acting, Modelling, Singing, and Dancing performances. She enters auditions confidently and is forever grateful to CMTC for this awesome opportunity! THANK YOU CMTC!"

"This was our first time at CMTC, and to be honest wasn’t sure what to expect. From the audition to the last day of the convention CMTC totally exceeded our expectations. The entertainment/ modelling industry can be very confusing with lots of scams out there...well not CMTC !!! It was total opposite, as a mom of a young aspiring actor/model it was sooo informative and helpful. The event was so well worth the cost and travel. We both had lots of fun at the seminars which gave me a better understand of the industry, and as a kid Isabella had tons of fun with friends. All the staff at CMTC were very helpful and the agents from around the world were awesome. We would totally recommend this convention."

"I had such an amazing time at CMTC 2019! I was the girl walking the runway with crutches, everyone was so encouraging especially staff and would accommodate to me if needed, like having Audra’s wonderful assistant help hold my photos for the photography go see ☺️ Thank you so much for everything you do in giving hidden talents the opportunity to be seen! I can’t wait to see everyone again next year, this time walking on my own two feet!"

"My son Quentin had an amazing time at CMTC! He earned 2 trophies and received 12 callbacks from agents and managers from NYC to LA. We are now represented by a major talent manager and one week after CMTC was over we were in NYC auditioning for a major network. Hopefully good news to come soon!"

“I experienced some of the best days of my life at CMTC. In a matter of four days, I was able to compete in competitions that exposed me to international agents and casting directors, I was well-educated on the industry from the seminars, I met amazing like-minded people and most importantly, I had fun! When I attended CMTC, my main goal was to take as much as I could from the experience and hoped for the best outcome. My goal was superseded. I won 1st in runway competition, I received 39 callbacks and I signed with Mode Elle and Next Models in Toronto and Montreal. I could not have asked for a better experience. I strongly recommend attending CMTC for an experience of a life time that is run professionally and seamlessly by amazing staff!”
