“The new venue for the show (6900 Airport Road in Mississauga) is located near major transportation routes and will provide easy access for patrons in the Greater Toronto region,” says a press release. “The International Centre offers complimentary parking to show guests. This, coupled with revised admission rates, will dramatically lower the cost of attending the show. As well, organizers plan to take advantage of indoor and outdoor spaces by creating a number of new feature exhibits that will add value and richness to the experience.”
The Canadian Ski Council has partnered with leading Canadian retailers, resorts, equipment distributors, media outlets and the Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows to create a new vision for the renamed Toronto Snow Show, formerly known as the Toronto Ski, Snowboard and Travel Show. In a move that some describe as an “historic first” within the ski industry, key leaders have come together to enhance not only the Toronto show, but to work to develop new and exciting programs to grow the snow sports industry in Canada.
Patrick Arkeveld, President and CEO of the Canadian Ski Council, recognizes the efforts of many people from within the Canadian industry. “The Toronto show has been recognized as one of the better remaining ski and snowboard shows in Canada. Given the importance of the Ontario market to the ski and snowboard industry in Canada, it is key that the fall show be a significant launch event for each winter season. This group of leaders has come together to work diligently on preparing the Toronto show for the challenge of representing one of the most dynamic sports on earth and attracting both existing and new enthusiasts to this great sport.”
“I would like to recognize the support and generosity shown by the Canadian National Sportsmen’s Show management,” adds Arkeveld. “ Without their ongoing support, this new show partnership would not have been possible.”
Peter Lockhart, President, Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows (CNSS), believes the new show will thrive. “As a not-for-profit entity, CNSS is extremely pleased to collaborate with the Canadian Ski Council and its many stakeholders to produce an exciting and restyled Toronto Snow Show. The ski industry leaders and our 66 years of consumer show management are a win-win combination that is sure to deliver a dynamic, expanded ski show experience.”
