The official TAVES press release:
"Toronto, Ontario - September 15, 2010 - Get ready for the most anticipated consumer electronics event in Canada! After almost a decade of absence, Toronto will host a brand new consumer audio video and electronics show. The event, organized by an experienced team, promises to promote and revitalize the consumer electronics industry and is expected to draw thousands of visitors.
The Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show, dubbed TAVES, has come to life after two years of development and market study, thanks to the collaboration between the CANADA HiFi magazine, Salon Son & Image and AuDIYo Inc. The first annual show will be held at the Le Meridien King Edward hotel from September 30th to October 2nd, 2011 just in time for the biggest shopping season. The Le Meridien King Edward hotel is a prestigious heritage building located in the heart of downtown Toronto and offers larger than average exhibit rooms with excellent sound acoustics.
The TAVES will showcase state-of-the-art consumer audio video products and technologies from mainstream and enthusiast brands. Consumers will be able to listen to and compare a large number of two-channel music systems as well as experience full-scale home theatre setups. Products on display will range from entry-level components to the ultra high-end and everything in between. In addition, a number of exhibitors will present the visitors with the opportunity to purchase various media products from rare music discs, vinyl albums and Blu-ray discs. On Saturday evening visitors and exhibitors will be invited to listen to a number of live music performances by local professional artists.
The show exhibition space will consist of a combination of larger than average hotel guestrooms, large parlours and a grand ballroom. Beds and other furniture will be removed from the rooms to accommodate audio and video setups.
To ensure a large number of visitors, the TAVES will be promoted extensively through various media outlets including local newspapers, magazines, radio stations, Internet forums, Facebook, Tweeter and several webzines in Canada and the United States.
You are cordially invited to join us for the 2011 Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show.
