Permanent showrooms expand at Toronto show

This August, SHOW T.O. will expand its collection of permanent showrooms at Toronto’s International Centre to include an additional seven Canadian home décor and giftware suppliers, as well as more than 100,000 square feet of shoppable space for retail buyers.

Joining the SHOW T.O. collective, which already includes Abbott, Accents de Ville, Auralim Gift, Avocado Decor, Forpost Trade, Celadon Art, Canadian Gift Concept, David Youngson & Associates, Danica, Danesco, Edenborough Limited, Group One Associates and Gunther Mele, are wholesale agencies:

  • Indaba
  • L’othanique
  • Tate Group
  • SDS DistributorsS
  • Ampersand
  • Canadian Manda Group
  • Pavilion Gift Co.

“Our decision to open a permanent showroom space was something we’ve considered for many years with many different potential iterations,”  said Carey Low, president of Canadian Manda Group. “Now we’re able to showcase and promote our product 365 days a year, at a destination that makes access easy and convenient for our customers.”

David Youngson, president of David Youngson and Associates, added: “Our showroom has been a true success, thanks to our team’s hard work and dedication and the incredible support of our retailers. The demand for more space to showcase our brands is undeniable, and we’re excited to announce that we’re expanding into a second showroom space in August 2023, providing even more opportunities for Canadian retailers to shop the newest gift, home and lifestyle products.”

Some existing show rooms are expanding, as well. IDC Home, already located In the International Centre, has also joined Show T.O.

MODE SHOW will also be joining the SHOW T.O. summer and winter markets with a temporary gift, home and lifestyle show, hosted just steps away on the first floor of the International Centre’s Building One.
