Throughout 1 million square feet of display space, the Toronto Gift Fair is Canada's largest temporary trade gift show. It boasts over 1,800 exhibitors each year and nearly 24,000 qualified retail buyers annually from across Canada. Look for innovative tabletop, housewares, gourmet food, garden accessories, collectibles, handmade, stationery, home decor, bath, bed and linen products and much much more. Owned and managed by the Canadian Gift Association, the show is located only minutes from Pearson International Airport and major highways. It provides gift retailers with a unique, professional buying experience at Toronto's two most convenient venues. In addition, complimentary shuttle buses run frequently between the two centres and from official hotels on the airport strip.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
