Show Logistics and Decorating
TAVES will be working with Showtime Displays to provide all decorating and logistics needs for exhibitors. The TAVES White Glove Service (drayage) will be mandatory for all exhibitors to simplify the load-in and load-out procedures at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel.
All exhibitors will have the option of shipping their goods for advanced warehousing, up to 3 weeks prior to the show date, for a small cost. We encourage all exhibitors shipping goods from outside of Canada to utilize this service, to ensure that their goods arrive in time for the show.
White Gloves Service – Drayage Made Simple
To provide a stress free experience to every exhibitor, TAVES recommends for all exhibitors to use the White Glove Service for all goods coming into and leaving from the hotel. 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 hotel on standard 4′ x 4′ skids (48″ x 48″).
The White Gloves Service is recommended due to the rapid growth of TAVES; this year’s show is set to feature a huge growth in the number of exhibitors. The Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel is a large, but very busy hotel, and we have access to only a small portion of the loading dock (other events take place in the hotel on the same weekend).
To arrange the White Glove Service for your company, please contact Showtime Displays – Adam at 905.598.3221.

International Exhibitors – Customs 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 email@example.com for assistance.
