From the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC)!
November 18th, 2017. The Early Bird Deadline Rate – Many exhibitors are not aware, but we offer both advanced “Early Bird” rates, as well as our regular On-site rates. For anybody wishing to take advantage of the Early Bird rates, they can send in a form or order online and save up to 36%!
November 2nd, 2017. Fire Safety Form Submission Deadline – Please make sure that all the exhibitors submit this form before the deadline so that we can go over all the Fire Safety Regulations with them before the event and make sure that they are in compliance with the Ontario Building and Fire Code.

5. Permission to Show
Very important to note if you have any electrical equipment!
Ontario Provincial Requirements for Exhibiting Electrical “Permission to Show” and “Permission to Energize” forms can be found here.
Essentially, there is a governing body in Ontario, much like the fire department, called the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) that governs the safety of electrical devices when exhibiting at a show in Ontario. If something is not approved according to the ESA – whether it’s on display or actually plugged in – the ESA must be informed by way of filling out the form and paying the fee.
This is not an MTCC rule; this is mandated by a separate governing body, but affects the tradeshow business.
Not everyone is affected by this; only those exhibitors with unapproved electrical devices. Common things like computers and lamps are not generally unapproved. It’s important to do you due diligence because, much like the fire department, there are inspectors that visit events in the MTCC building and canvass the floor for non-compliant devices.
6. Exhibitor Insurance Policy
All exhibitors must provide a Certificate of Insurance (COI) for $3 million to email@example.com no later than November 10th.
