Experience the Future of Consumer Electronics at TAVES!

The TAVES Consumer Electronics Show is Canada’s ultimate technology showcase, bringing together the brightest minds in the Consumer Electronics and Information and Communications Technologies industries: innovators, incubators, educators, media and consumers.

This world-class exposition attracts companies from around the globe and showcases cutting-edge technology and innovation spanning a broad range of categories, such as wearables, healthcare, gaming, audio, home theatre, digital imaging, smart devices, as well as the latest in-car entertainment.

The show presents an unrivaled opportunity for all companies – from major brands to crowd-funded startups – to launch prototypes, new products and beta software to a wide range of mainstream and specialist media outlets.

Unparalleled Exposure and Coverage

TAVES offers the perfect environment to connect with other innovative entrepreneurs, sales opportunities, business partners and media contacts.

The 2014 edition of the show was attended by over 4,200 visitors, and offered a high ratio of women as well as visitors under the age of 30.  Also that year, TAVES received remarkable television exposure thanks to news coverage from CBC, CP24, CTV, CityTV and Global TV, and the largest number of specialist media to date.  No other Canadian technology trade show can claim this kind of media coverage!

TAVES has also built a strong social media following of over 8,000 followers on www.facebook.com/taveshow and @taveshow.  Between now and the event, we will post regular updates not only to promote our exhibitors, but also to give updates on the TAVES event and future contests to help foster the excitement for this year’s amazing event.

Engaging Experiences For All Ages

Throughout the three-day event, TAVES hosts summits and conferences from industry leaders on the topics of technology, innovation and start-up opportunities.  The program offers a variety of formats, ranging from keynotes to panel discussions to product demonstrations to lively debates.
In addition, interactive robotics and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workshops will be offered to children under 12 by certified science teachers and engineers.  These workshops will provide students with opportunities to learn skills critical to innovation such as problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity, as they carry out fun and meaningful experiments that they design and build.

Hosted In Canada’s High-Tech Capital

Going into its fifth year, the 2015 edition of the show will take place from Friday, October 30 to Sunday, November 1, 2015 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel & Suites on the border of Richmond Hill and Markham, in York Region just minutes north of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

York Region is commonly referred to as “Canada’s High-Tech Capital” since it is home to a high concentration of technology companies: over 4,400 Information & Communications Technology companies reside here.  This area also offers Canada’s fastest-growing population and Ontario’s second-largest business community.  It hosts one of the most educated workforces in North America, with 53 percent of post-secondary graduates with majors in Information & Computer Sciences, Engineering and Business Administration.

Conveniently located at the intersection of Highway 404 and Highway 7, the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel & Suites is right in the heart of the GTA and is easily accessible by all major highways and public transit.

NEW for 2015! TAVES Technology Innovators Meetup Group

To complement the annual trade show, TAVES has launched a monthly conference called Technology Innovators “Powered by TAVES” designed to connect existing and start-up companies with the organizers of TAVES, consumers curious about technology and media.  This Meetup group is also helping to rapidly spread awareness about TAVES throughout the technology community, while forming strategic relationships with the key innovators in the industry.  We invite you, or your company, to participate in one of our monthly Meetups.  For more information about this Meetup group and upcoming events, please visit www.meetup.com/Technology-Innovators-Meetup-Powered-by-TAVES

The Jolt! Art Gallery was a huge success at last year’s show and will return for 2015, with some exciting new additions.  The gallery will feature art from local artists ranging from paintings to photography and sculptures.  The gallery will showcase over 100 pieces of art from nearly 20 artists, displayed throughout the main TAVES show floor for every visitor to take pleasure in.  At the heart of the gallery will be a large room dedicated to drawing a connection between consumer electronics products and art, featuring artwork as well as exceptionally designed consumer products.
