SHIPPING GUIDELINES

SHIPPING GUIDELINES

The trade show will be held in Constitution Hall (Halls 106-107) at the MTCC. As the convention centre does not accept shipments, we have partnered with GES to service your shipment needs.

Option 1: Pre-ship your materials via GES
If you are traveling from out of town and you would like to ship materials, GES will accept your material at their warehouse and then deliver it to your booth location.

Customs: please use tariff Item 9993.00.00.00 for all display items entering Canada temporarily.

GES Shipping Forms:
• Advanced Shipping (p. 28)
• Direct Shipping (p. 29)
• Customs (p. 33)
• Material Handling (p. 26)

Option 2: Hand deliver your items
This option is for exhibitors who will be bringing their materials with them. If you have large items, you will need to move in and out of the east loading docks (info and maps p. 7). Should you require a pump truck or dolly, GES will have a few onsite that you may borrow. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You may also wish to purchase an advanced Parking Pass (p. 17) to give you in-and-out privileges. If you have minimal items to carry, you can bring them with you from the parking garage. The closest parking garage is located just off of Simcoe Street. Once in the parking garage, follow the signs to the North building, level 100, Constitution Hall.
