IDS Contract Exhibitor Kit.
1) Exhibitor Badges.
All exhibitors and their staff will be required to wear a badge during the show while on the exhibit floor. These badges will allow free access to the exhibit hall during set-up, show hours and move-out. To avoid the registration lines onsite, exhibitors are advised to register their badges online in advance: (link coming soon). Exhibitors will have received an email from email@example.com with their login password. For detailed instructions on how to use the badge registration portal please refer to this How-To PDF.
BADGES WILL NOT BE MAILED IN ADVANCE OF THE SHOW. Exhibitor badges will only be issued on-site during move-in at the registration counters located on level 600 of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Please have your business card or proof of affiliation on hand when picking up your badge.
Additional badges or replacement badges are $50 each. A positive proof of affiliation with the exhibiting company may be required for all NEW badges printed on-site.
A maximum number of complimentary badges per booth will be allocated based on booth square footage:
50 – 100 sq.ft.
101 – 300 sq.ft.
Temporary Badges for Move-In/Out Staff.
Contractors or staff working on your behalf during set-up and tear-down (and who will NOT be working during regular show hours) will be given a temporary sticker to wear during move-in and move-out times. They will not be issued permanent staff badges. The temporary stickers will be available at the west ramp and the east loading docks upon arrival at the show and are valid only during move-in and move-out designated times.
2) Opening Night Party Tickets.
Our Opening Night Party will be held on Thursday, January 19, 2023, from 7:00pm–11:00pm on the show floor at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. NOTE: the party is open to the general public and guests must be 19 years of age and older. Exhibitors are expected to staff their booths as normal during the party.
Exhibitors will receive complimentary tickets to distribute to clients, friends and family; the number of tickets supplied is based on booth square footage. Exhibitors will receive an email with a link to their ticket distribution portal and can follow the steps outlined HERE (PDF) to send out invitations to their family, friends, or clients. Important note: tickets MUST be distributed electronically to guests and cannot be held for pick up onsite at the Show. Exhibitor staff working in the booth during the party can use their exhibitor staff badge to access the show floor and reserve the party tickets for clients, friends, etc.
