CANADA'S GREATEST COLLECTOR'S TOY SHOW & SALE
[with consideration for the safety of our dealers and patrons, and in compliance with the Ontario Ministry of Health's
current guidelines regarding physical distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19, this show has been deferred until early in 2022]
Floor Trading Rights & Public Show Admission will be available
The Canadian Toy Collector's Society, with great pleasure, invites you to have a table or booth at our 48th Annual "Canada's Greatest Collector's Toy Show & Sale", now unfortunately postponed until the Spring of 2022. Being the sponsors of the longest running and best established toy show in Canada we have continually set the standard. Our show management team includes people with credentials and experience in the area of marketing, a very important ingredient when doing advertising and publicity.
Our last show attendance neared 1200 patrons, many of whom found that elusive toy for their collection at the show.
What is it that brought those patrons to that show?
|bright hall lighting making examining purchases easier|
|table and booth prices that are comparable with other major Canadian shows|
|the friendly atmosphere of a "club-run" Toy Show|
the CTCS website providing quick response to Show questions|
|the knowledge that profits from the show are used to purchase Canadian toys|
and maintain them for public viewing and museum use
|the availibility of pre show trading rights during dealer set-up Saturday evening|
and early Sunday morning
on-line distribution and access to the $1.00 off admission postcards|
a steady buyer lineup entering the hall throughout the show hours |
a diverse selection of toys at over 125 tables & booths|
|the CTCS club display of antique toys and white metal models|
|easy access to ample free parking |
|extensive print and media event advertising|
|the fact that the TTC stops right at our door|
|our show flyer being distributed internationally|
|wide, uncrowded aisles allowing customers to browse tables without being jostled by passers-by|
Indeed, all these features helped bring out the crowds. Dealers appreciated club member assistance during set-up and take down time, free coffee and donuts and the mid afternoon Sunday closing time.
We plan to have the show again conveniently located in the Etobicoke Olympium, 590 Rathburn Rd, Etobicoke (Toronto), Ontario. (date for Spring 2022 to be confirmed)
This facility features excellent lighting, ample free parking and easy access from public transportation.
The hall is easily accessed from all major highways and it is just a short drive away from Toronto's Pearson International Airport. The show venue is also within minutes of hotels such as the Sheraton (Toronto Airport) Hotel & Conference Centre and the Comfort Inn (Airport North), as well as the Hampton Inn (Toronto Airport), Monte Carlo Inn (Toronto West Suites), the Valhalla Inn Hotel (Mississauga), and the Quality Suites (Toronto Airport). Iit is also a short commute from several hotels on streets immediately parallel to Hwy 427.
Dealer set-up will take place on Saturday evening and again early Sunday morning.During these times, The show, with normal public admission, will run on after dealer set-up on Sunday morning to mid Sunday afternoon.
However, eager collectors will be able to purchase "early floor trading rights"
at the door during dealer setup times ... so if you are really looking for a rare or unique item for your collection, be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity to browse the show offerings ahead of the rush of the general public.
For our out-of-town visitors who might wish to venture a little further afield, TTC service to downtown Toronto, local toy stores, museums and other types of displays, has a stop adjacent to the Etobicoke Olympium.
