should come in as early as possible on Thursday morning).
All displays from both days must be completely set by 3:00 p.m. on Friday, April 26 as the Show opens promptly at 5:00
p.m.. If you can, please come early on either day to avoid delays. Show staff will be present to assist you with any
problems that might arise during the Move-In period, but Show Management cannot provide manual assistance
during Move-In or Move-Out. Please ensure that you have adequate staff to unload and set up your own display.
Show Hours: Friday, April 26, 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Saturday, April 27, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., & Sunday, April 28, 10:00 a.m.
- 4:00 p.m
A check-in table will be located at the Main Entrance to the arena. Please report there upon arrival to pick up your
Exhibitor badges, as well as to be shown where your booth is located. Exhibitor badges will be available here at the
start of each day, for the current day only.
Please do not attach anything to your curtains, as we will be charged for any holes in these rental items and will in
turn have to collect these damages from you. If you have a lightweight sign that you would like to hang from your
booth's curtain rod, we recommend using metal shower curtain rings, or if you would like your sign to hang a little
lower, try bending a piece of a coat hanger into an “S” shape and hanging one end over the top bar of your curtain,
with the other end attached to the upper corners of your sign.
Booths will be equipped with an eight foot high beige colored curtain at the back of your booth, with two three foot
high ivory curtained side walls, (one side wall for corner booths). If you require any other furnishings, please visit
the "Exhibitor" page of our website to order. If you have ordered power to your booth, you will also need to bring a
three prong CSA approved extension cord. A 10 - 20 foot cord should be more than long enough.
Exhibitor Move-Out begins after 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, and all displays must be removed that evening. Under no
circumstances will any exhibitor be permitted to begin packing before our advertised closing as it will affect other
Exhibitors who wish to stay open until the end of the Show. As well, our Insurance Carriers will not cover any injuries
to the public should an accident occur. Move-Out, compared to Set-up, is generally completed within just a couple of
hours, so please be patient.
Although our staff will be the last to leave after the Show closes each day, and the facility will be locked up tight
behind us and the alarm turned on, we strongly recommend that small expensive items on your table be covered with
sheets, or taken with you at night. Show Management cannot be responsible for articles that go missing. Please
speak to us in advance, if you are unsure of leaving a particular item.
Advanced Tickets at $5.00 each are now available for special clients who you might like to invite to the Show. These
should be ordered soon, to ensure you have ample time to distribute them.
On Move-In days our staff will only be available at the arena, so please ask any questions now, or come and see us
during our set-up at the arena.
We encourage our Exhibitors to offer a draw for a prize in their booth. Although it may seem like just another
expense, these draws are actually an excellent way for an Exhibitor to collect a list of “Qualified” leads which can
then be followed up on after the Show has ended. A draw will also keep people in your booth for a longer period of
time. Please let us know what your prize will be, so we can promote it for you on our web site.
IAdvertising: If you are the owner of a local business that places regular newspaper ads, a banner or star burst in
your ad inviting people to visit your booth at the Show, is always a great idea. If you have a large message sign board
outside of your place of business, adding: “See us at The Kanata Home & Leisure Show, This Weekend”, will certainly
help to increase traffic to the Show and to your display. If you have not yet placed a similar note/link on your web site,
this should be done as soon as possible. If you are enrolled in any other shows prior to ours, why not let people who
visit your display know that you will be involved at our show on April 26, 27 & 28, by having a flyer on your table
We are very excited about this event, and look forward to meeting you at the Show.
