All demonstration hardware and exhibits coming from outside of Canada must be cleared by the Canada Boarder Services Agency (CMBSA) upon entry. Conference participants are free to make their own shipping and customs arrangements, or to use the official conference customs broker.
If you would like assistance bringing your goods into Canada
North American Logistics Services Inc. is the official customs broker and freight services provider for the conference. They can provide customs clearance services, as well as door-to-door shipping. See this flyer for details:
