For questions pertaining to move-in/move-out facilities and times, please refer to your Exhibitor Kit supplied by Show Management, or speak directly with your Show Manager. As well, any questions can be sent through to general enquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend that goods are shipped through the contracted show decorator to ensure efficiency; as well, the Centre does not receive exhibitor shipments prior to the exhibitor move-in days.
However, if other arrangements have been made, please ensure that your packages are clearly labeled with the following information:
North Building shipments
Metro Toronto Convention Centre
255 Front Street West
South Building shipments
Metro Toronto Convention Centre
222 Bremner Blvd.
Please ensure that all shipments include the name of the event, the room number or exhibit hall, booth number, and company name. It is possible that you may need to be present to sign for any packages upon delivery.
Our Centre is the first convention centre in North America to use the Voyage Control app to facilitate exhibitor move-in. It allows exhibitors to easily pre-reserve a time on their mobile device for unloading exhibitor/booth materials instead of being redirected to the marshalling yard. This results in a time savings of approximately 20 minutes per exhibitor and reduces traffic and carbon monoxide emissions in the local area. Please contact your Show Manager to see if you can obtain your Voyage Control code.
New Marshalling Yard
The Centre’s new marshalling yard encompasses three acres of paved trailer storage area. The site is located approximately 14km from the MTCC and is easily accessible from major highways (Hwy 427, QEW/Gardiner, Lakeshore).
The new yard will be fenced, well-lit, safe, and secure. It will be completed at the end of June, and we anticipate the area to be in full operation starting August 1, 2022.
Address: 130 Horner Ave, Etobicoke, ON M8Z 4X8. View on Google Maps.
