Trade Show at the Canadian Special Events EXPO13

Filed under Ontario, Past Events, Toronto

Thursday, March 21st, The Canadian Special

 Event Expo 2013, hosted a Trade show at the Metro Toronto 

Convention Centre.

As a social media sponsor of the UnExpected13 opening night party the night before,

we were welcome to attend this one of a kind event.

What is a Trade show all about you would ask?

Well actually, it is about representing the entire event industry in one place, to provide professionals and attendees access to an eclectic network. This included entertainment previews, and opportunities to meet a number of event suppliers.

There were a number of stalls with innovative products and services, new technologies, such as a fog wall that you can use to screen videos, or entertainment with lookalikes such as Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe.

  Also the fun part was in my opinion the numerous photo booths at the show. Everything that you ever imagine to take pictures was available. From 3D printed photos, to a fully automated
booth and for some photo interaction sometimes even props were available to jazz up the photos.

What about the food some of you might add?

Glutton would not have been disappointed! There were food stations to please everyone. Whereas it was sweet with Cupcakes Companies who are able to put your company’s logo on the frosting, or corporate maple sugar gifts.

Everything was set up for business interactions or even just for guests to look for new and creative ideas for future events. “See what’s new and hot now” in an industry that keeps on growing.

 Inspiration was floating around us the entire day.
