Booth Standards

Walls, Heights & Sightlines

  • Each exhibitor is responsible for providing a back wall display that is at between eight (8) feet and ten (10) feet in height. Walls that go above eight (8) feet in height need to be fully finished on the back side in a neutral colour (i.e. white or black) with absolutely no logos or branding.

  • Draped side walls will be provided that are 3 (three) feet in height for inline booths. 

Island Booths

Show Standards


Soliciting, Samples, and Food & Beverage Sampling

  • In our continued effort to promote a healthy and safe and sustainable show floor we are asking that you find alternatives to handing out samples or swag from your booth. There are some amazing examples of executing this in a manner that is safe and recommend that you explore the use of QR codes to scan at your booth for contests, promotional materials, videos etc. If you need any direction please connect with Tori Grant at
  • Distribution of samples, souvenirs and promotional items and soliciting of business must be confined to the exhibitor’s booth space only. Such activities are not permitted in the aisles, registration areas, hallways, restaurants, lobbies, other exhibits, or elsewhere on the property of The International Centre.
  • Only participating exhibitors have the exclusive right to promote or sell goods or services in this show. All other solicitations without the express written permission of Show Management will be permanently removed from the show area. Please report any infractions to the show office so that immediate action can be taken.
  • Samples of food and beverage items are permitted, provided the food or beverages are directly related to the exhibitor’s line of business and are subject to prior approval by The International Centre and must follow explicit rules regarding size and quantity. For details and guidelines, contact the catering department at The International Centre by email at

Electrical Equipment Regulations

Are you unsure if your electrical equipment is approved?

Approved electrical products carry the official mark or Field Evaluation label of an agency that is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada and that has approved the product.

New electrical products or any lighting/wiring that is not factory assembled must be approved by an accredited approval agency prior to move-in.
