TAVES, Canada’s ultimate consumer electronics show is delighted to announce its return to Richmond Hill, Ontario (in York Region), the country’s high-tech capital, after our most successful year ever. And with an even bigger, bolder lineup. The 2016 show will run from Friday, Oct. 28 to Sunday, Oct. 30 at the Sheraton Parkway and Best Western North Toronto Hotels.
The place to connect with tech-savvy consumers
Last year’s show saw a staggering 55% spike in attendance and 42% growth in exhibitors – solidifying TAVES’ reputation as the place to connect with tech-savvy consumers with a taste for innovative products. Showcasing cutting-edge technology and innovation in the most exciting categories: virtual reality, drones, wearables, hearables, health & fitness, gaming, audio, home theatre, robotics, 3D printing, personal transportation, smart devices and electric vehicles – the show attracts consumers, industry, mainstream and specialist media.
New programming a big success
New programing opened TAVES up to families – and brought a whole new energy to the show. Kids and adults played side-by-side at the Outdoor Electronics Playground, trying out drones, remote control toys, electric cars, e-bikes and scooters.
The Robotics and Technology Workshops gave kids the thrill of building and programming their own robots and gizmos while their parents explored exhibits.
Big crowds packed our expanded Technology and Innovation Pavilions, eager to experience the latest tech toys from virtual reality headsets to 3D printers to wearables. Movie and music lovers were also back in full force – exploring the dizzying array of audio and home theatre products available in the TAVES demonstration rooms.
