Tradeshow materials, such as booths and exhibits, are classified as temporary imports, and can therefore qualify for duty-free entry into Canada. However, the procedure for shipping these materials is complicated which is why, if you are running an event and want it to run smoothly, it is worth your while to avail of our tradeshow services.
We can make sure that your tradeshow is registered properly with the Canada Border Services Agency. We can coordinate transportation for all of your foreign exhibitors, making sure that they are moving their materials in and out of Canada in a compliant and cost-efficient manner.
We can inform you and your exhibitors about packaging, labelling and documentation requirements, so that delays and penalties will be avoided, and all shipments will arrive on time.
