What do I need to know about Ontario’s mandatory Workplace Health & Safety Programs regarding Congress? 

Landscape Ontario, the Toronto Congress Centre and all suppliers appointed by show management for the set-up and tear-down of your exhibit are governed by and follow the procedures defined by the Ministry of Labour's Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act and Regulations. During move-in and -out, the Congress trade show floor has been designated as an industrial zone. Mandatory regulations that specify certain personal protection equipment (PPE), practices and regulations about how and by whom work can be performed are in effect. 

All exhibit personnel and/or subcontractors involved in the set-up and tear-down of your exhibit must complete and be prepared to submit upon request a certificate from the Ministry of Labour's Worker/Supervisor Awareness Training Program. You are advised to share this link with all staff and subcontractors. Save the completed certificates in a file. Bring the file to the show site and have it available during the following period January 5-12, 2024. http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/training/

What additional regulations should I be aware of when constructing my exhibit? 

Complete details concerning the set-up and tear-down of your booth will be found in the Exhibitor Manual. You, your staff and subcontractors must complete and submit the Health and Safety Policy and Declaration. Here are some of the highlights you’ll want to be aware of:


Do I have to schedule a move-in? 

Yes. Refer to the Move-in Request Form. For information about move-in, you are welcome to contact Mercedes Strachan at: ShowInfo@LOCongress.com

Can I drive my truck right onto the main floor? 

No. Unless the vehicle is part of your display booth. You will be required to make special arrangements to drive to your booth in the building. Contact Mercedes Strachan at: mstrachan@landscapeontario.com. A complimentary truck washing service is available during move-in.

Will forklifts be available for move-in and move-out? 

Yes. Pallets and crates will be unloaded from your truck and delivered to your booth at no charge. Forklifts, if required for work within the confines of your booth, can be rented from Stronco Group of Companies. Order this service before move-in.

Where can trucks park during the show days? 

Arrangements have been made at the Delta Hotel by Marriott, 655 Dixon Rd, Toronto, ON, Canada. There is a special concession for 18-wheeler trucks at a rate of $60/truck/day. Reservations should be made at least two (2) weeks prior in writing to Julius Brown at jbrown@deltatorontoairport.com and include an indication of the length of time the vehicle will be parked and the length of the trailer.

Which hotels are recommended?

A certificate of insurance protects you, other exhibitors, attendees, and show management should an incident occur. A copy of your certificate of insurance, from your current business insurance provider or a new policy, must be sent to show management. See the online Exhibitor Manual for more information.

Will security be available on a 24-hour basis? 

Yes. However, Landscape Ontario and the Toronto Congress Centre will not assume any responsibility for lost, stolen or misplaced materials.
