WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

All ticket holders are strongly encouraged to attend VIP Night, Friday afternoon, Saturday Afternoon and all day Sunday. We may reach capacity for a very short time from about 6 pm - 8 pm on Friday and Saturday night only.  All advance ticket holders will get in as capacity permits. Generally it takes about 30 - 45 minutes to enter during this peak time. We have 26 show hours over 4 days and we highly recommend arrival outside of these peak times.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I ARRIVE?

If you have Advance Admission Tickets go straight up the main escalators and enter the Expo. You can purchase sample tickets in the foyer or in one of four sample ticket booths available inside the Expo (note: some inside locations are cash only).

If you do not have advance tickets enter the ticket lines in the foyer. You can purchase tickets and sample tickets at all main ticket booths. Proceed with your tickets up the main escalator into the Expo.

WHY IS THE EVENT A 19 PLUS EVENT ONLY?
There are no infants or children permitted at the Expo. This is an adults only event based on the permit we are granted from the LCBO and the AGCO. This event runs on a special occasion permit that is different from a restaurant liquor license. An alcohol related event of this magnitude will only be granted approval from the AGCO based on upholding this stipulation. We apologize for any inconvenience and please join us for an evening out amongst adults!

DRESS CODE?
There is no official dress code but anything from smart casual, to city chic, to quite dressy is acceptable attire for this event.

COAT CHECK? 
A cash coat check area is offered onsite by the MTCC.

TRANSPORTATION?

We highly recommend public transit, limo, taxi or bringing a designated driver to this event. The facility is connected via indoor walkway to Union Station and the Subway. Taxi cabs are aware of the event and always wait at the MTCC. Many local hotels also offer special rates, please see the hotels section of this website.
