TORONTO – The online registration desk for the 2016 edition of the Canadian Furniture Show will open tomorrow morning (Thursday, February 18) and those retailers booking their hotel-stay over the next few weeks will automatically be entered into a draw for two-night accommodation package.
Owned and organised by the Quebec Furniture Manufacturers Association, the Canadian Furniture Show (CFS) will open at the International Centre here on Saturday, May 28, 2016. The show will close on Monday, May 30.
To register, all CFS participants – including exhibitors, retailers, designers and others – can visit the market’s web site at http://www.canadianfurnitureshow.com/ and click on the ‘registration’ tile to request their badge.
According to the organisers, CFS has invested in a new online registration platform provided by an industry-leading provider. “For us, it’s a more reliable system,” Nathalie Lessard, CFS communications director, said. “For show participants, registration will be easier and much more secure, plus it will be easier to retrieve login credentials.”
CFS has selected the Toronto-based Destination Plus to provide hotel bookings for the country’s only national furniture industry events and is offering discounts ranging from 10% to 35% at a number of hotels near the International Centre such as the Toronto Airport Marriott, the Sheraton Gateway and the Hotel Carlingview. There is a complete list of available hotels on the web site.
The organisers have also announced it will hold a draw for 25 two-night free accommodation packages for those retailers who make their hotel reservations before Sunday, April 24. The winners will be announced on May 28, the opening day of CFS 2016.

For participating exhibitors, CFS organisers are planning to publish one-page e-flyers where each company can feature anywhere from one to four show specials they are offering in their space during the show.
