Show Information

With a total of 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, and exhibitors and visitors from all across the world, Win-Door is Canada’s premier showplace for the fenestration industry. During the three-day event, attendees can keep current and learn about the latest industry standards and trends. The free opening night reception and two free luncheons provide perfect opportunities for participants to network and talk shop with their peers. Industry specialists will also be on-hand to demonstrate new ideas, new technology and creative solutions. Finally, more than 2,500 window and door manufacturers from around the world will be present, presenting attendees with an opportunity to make key contacts.

In 2000, Win-Door hosted more than 185 exhibiting companies in the state-of-the-art Metro Toronto Convention Center. 

“Win-Door is truly an effective sales tool for our membership,” said Tom Duffey of the Canadian Window and Door Manufacturers Association (CWDMA). “[It is a] valuable industry event.” This year’s show will feature the latest computer hardware, software, doors, doorlites, machinery, sealants, weather seals, testing services, wood products and systems for the fenestration and door industries. 

Take Toronto

The city of Toronto also features plenty of entertaining sites and attractions you may want to see during some downtime from the show. Harbourfront Centre is a year-round facility whose concerts and dance performances place a large emphasis on culturally diverse acts. Toronto Eaton Centre is the third largest mall in Canada and includes more than 285 shops and restaurants. High Park’s large natural area encompasses a pond, wooded areas, trails, open picnic areas and various recreational facilities. Royal Ontario Museum contains 6 million objects on display and more than 40 galleries. The Hockey Hall of Fame is a haven for sports fans and highlights the history and glory of the game’s greats.

Free parking at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre south building’s underground parking garage is minutes walking distance from the city’s entertainment district, where attendees can enjoy fine dining, hotels, theatres, sporting events and the world-famous CN Tower and Skydome.
