Attended last year by over 4,200 visitors, TAVES 2015 is expected to attract even more attendees, along with extensive media coverage and business-to-business opportunities.

This year the show was strategically moved to the highway 404/7 technology district in Richmond Hill and Markham -- Canada's High-Tech Capital. This area, and the surrounding York Region, is home to 4,400 Information and Communications Technology companies, one of the largest technology hubs in Greater Toronto and Canada.
As Canada's largest consumer technology show, TAVES showcases innovation from the latest in:
- Virtual reality and augmented reality video gaming
- Robotics, including several robotics workshops for kids
- Electric cars, e-bikes and scooters
- Drones and remote control toys
In addition to these, the expo will also highlight cutting-edge wearables, smart devices, 3D printing, home & personal HiFi, home theatre, electronic gadgets, as well as digital imaging products. TAVES is covered extensively by Canadian and US media and in 2014 received significant exposure thanks to news coverage from CBC, CP24, CTV, CityTV and Global TV, among others.
"In 2015, TAVES will once again increase its footprint by offering more expo space than ever before" said Suave Kajko, President of TAVES Toronto Consumer Electronics Show. "The expanded space will be used to host even more exhibitors, product demos, seminars, as well as allow us to add new activities such as a video gaming discussion panel, Meetups, youth coder workshops, kids robotics workshops and even a tech-inspired art gallery. There is something for everyone, from technology enthusiasts to seasoned professionals."
In partnership with local hi-tech organizations in York Region TAVES will also host targeted events dedicated to the growth of emerging technology companies. "TAVES offers a great opportunity for start-ups to showcase new products, prototypes and beta software/apps directly to Toronto-area consumers and the media", said Lucas Chang, Community Co-Lead for Startup York Region.
