Since the start of the pandemic, IDS Toronto has been closely following the advice of public health authorities. As an event, we will continue to abide to the latest guidance from local authorities, while making every effort to ensure your time at IDS Toronto is both enjoyable and safe.
On March 9, 2022, The Government of Ontario outlined its plan for “living with and managing COVID‑19,” which includes the lifting of most mask mandates as of March 21.
What this means for IDS Toronto 2022
Taking place April 7 - 10, IDS Toronto will no longer require proof of vaccination to enter our event venue, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building. As well, mask wearing will be voluntary but recommended. Customers are encouraged to take precautions based on their individual risk assessment and comfort level.
IMPORTANT: Please note that all restrictions and requirements are subject to change at any time to best protect the health and safety of all of its audiences in accordance with government guidelines and legal allowances. These may include, without limitation, changes to capacity, attendance procedures, and entry requirements, such as mandatory mask wearing, proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, daily screening, contact tracing and any other protective measures. If any visitor, exhibitor, partner, sponsor, or staff do not comply with any laws, mandates, health orders/directives, show management may refuse admission to the event or require individual to leave the venue and with no refunds of entrance fees, booth fees, membership fees, parking fees, rental fees, or any other expenses/payments.
Health & Safety Guidelines.
The following Health and Safety Guidelines will continue to be in place at IDS Toronto 2022:
Face Coverings: In line with the latest provincial guidance, mask wearing will not be required but recommended. We encourage everyone to take precautions based on their individual risk assessment and comfort level.

Trade Days Badges can be printed at home and presented at the door for entry.
Self Assessment of Symptoms: If you are not feeling well and are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home.
Enhanced Sanitization: IDS Toronto will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after our events, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of the event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas. We will also provide additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to practice good hand hygiene.
Building Ventilation: The Metro Toronto Convention Centre continues to use highly effective air filters in all HVAC systems and have increased the cleaning frequency of the air handling units. The volume of fresh air intake increased from a baseline of 20% up to 50%. Running hours of air handling units have been extended to further increase the turnovers of fresh air replacement in the facility.
