Going into its fifth year, the 2015 edition of the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show will take place at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel & Suites in the Richmond Hill / Markham area from October 30th to November 1st.

Attended last year by over 4,200 visitors, TAVES 2015 is expected to attract even more attendees, along with business-to-business opportunities. The event brings together technology innovators, trade professionals, consumers and educators. Among the companies/brands showcased this year will be AMD, Tesla, Volvo, Yamaha, VIZIO, JVC/Kenwood, Oculus Rift, Sulon Technologies, Holocube North America, Canada Robotix and MakerBot.

This year the show was strategically moved to the highway 404/7 technology district in Richmond Hill and Markham – home to 4,400 information and communications technology companies.

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 will once again increase its footprint by offering more expo space than ever before,” says 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”, adds Lucas Chang, community co-lead for startup York Region. “On the B2B side, a range of industry events and Meetups during the show will connect entrepreneurs with peers and technology industry executives.”
