White Gloves Service – Drayage Made Simple

To provide a stress free experience to every exhibitor, TAVES offers a mandatory White Glove Service for all goods coming into and leaving from the Toronto Congress Centre. So relax and grab a coffee while our friendly staff move your boxes from the loading dock to your room and back from your room to the loading dock at the end of the show.  TAVES requires that all show materials arrive at the Toronto Congress Centre on standard 4′ x 4′ skids (48″ x 48″).

To arrange the White Glove Service for your company, please contact Showtime Displays – Adam at 905.598.3221.

International ExhibitorsCustoms Clearance Services

The services of a Customs Broker are strongly recommended for all exhibitors shipping products/exhibit materials to TAVES from outside of Canada. This will eliminate the possibility of materials being held at the border by Canada Customs due to improper or insufficient documentation resulting in materials arriving too late or not at all. Mendelssohn Commerce will assist all exhibitors with their temporary imports, permanent entries and export of exhibit materials. Appropriate forms are available for download below. For any customs questions, please contact Rob Parr at 905-673-5445 Ext. 312 or rparr@mend.com for assistance.
