CNE Expert Insights App

Returning this year in a new format, the CNE App wants to send you on a trip for two from our friends at Air Transat simply by downloading our App and walking around the grounds! 

This year, we just want you to enjoy your day and have the app do all the work for you! Our CNE Expert Insights App uses Bluetooth checkpoints throughout the grounds to fully understand your experience during your day. Plus, for each day that you activate the CNE EXpert Insights App while on the grounds, you will automatically be rewarded with an additional ballot for the chance to win a trip for two valued at just over $3,000! Click here to read more about this great Wander to Win contest with our EXpert Insights App!

Data collected by CNE Expert Insights App will be used by the CNE to better understand our visitors and help refine offerings for future years. Please note all data collected remains confidential.

To be a part of this new experience, download the CNE Expert Insights App, enable your Bluetooth and Location services, and spend a day at the fair! 

To download the app in the Apple Store here and the Google Play Store here


  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • A smartphone with either iOS or Android: If iOS, then it must be an iPhone 5S or above with iOS 10 or above; if Android, then it must be Android 5 or above
  • The smartphone must have Bluetooth support and it must be enabled
  • Location Services must be enabled
  • The user must have given the app permission to know its location (on iOS, you must “Always” allow the app to know your location, “While Using the App” will not work)
  • This App is not accessible on Blackberries
  • Data should be enabled while using the app (the app uses a minimal amount of data)
  • If the user decides, they can turn the app on and off within the app
  • If you return to the CNE for an additional visit, you will be rewarded with an additional ballot


  • Make sure Bluetooth is on
  • Make sure location services are on
  • Make sure that the app is granted permission to know your location. On iOS, open the device’s settings and scroll down to CNE EXpert Insights. Then, click Location and make sure “Always” is selected (“While Using the App” will not work). On Android, the app will ask you for permissions if it doesn’t have the correct ones each time it opens. However, you can change this manually by opening Settings, then Apps (or Application Manager), then CNE EXpert Insights. Then select Permissions and make sure Location is On.
  • Exit the app and open it again (double tap on Apple, press the cascading rectangle icon in Android, then swipe up/sideways to kill it)
  • Sometimes battery saving apps will shut CNE EXpert Insights app down while in the background causing the app to miss checkpoints; make sure the CNE Expert Insights is given an exception or these battery saving apps are turned off
