The Toronto Gift Fair has always been an outstanding show for us and will continue to be part of our future for many years to come.

The Toronto Gift Fair has been a key success factor in allowing us to reach a wide range of customers from toy and kids stores to clothing and general gift. The show delivers a wide range of accounts at one event. Apart from order-taking we also use the event to test out new products and get customer feedback. It is an invaluable tool to ensure we stay relevant in the marketplace. We love our technology, but growing your business for the long-term will always come down to personal relationships and the trust you build from face-to-face contact.
As a family-owned company, we feel that exhibiting at a trade show like the Toronto Gift Fair is a good way to meet the customers and make them feel part of our family. We think a good relationship with our clients is important so they feel confident about their supplier and therefore our product. It’s also important for the retailers to attend the gift show to meet the people behind the product. Websites are great to replenish stock or to overview a company’s profile, but to actually see, touch and to have someone explain the use and possibilities of a product is much better.
Over the past 20 years that Rada Enterprises has been a member of the CGTA/CanGift, the giftware industry has constantly been changing. CanGift has continued to evolve to help members like us through these times. CanGift continues to create high-quality shows across Canada that attract qualified retailers from within Canada, and also from outside its borders, helping us to connect with a continuous stream of new clients and maintain existing client relationships. The many seminars we have attended offered quality speakers with relevant information for our team to learn and adapt to changing client needs. RADA has benefited from the volume pricing CanGift has negotiated on freight and other related services, which has saved us large amounts of money over the years. All the services provided by CanGift have helped RADA remain a profitable Canadian company.
The Toronto Gift Fair is a great chance for suppliers to reach out to existing and potential buyers across North America. Participating creates not only immediate orders at the show booth, but also potential leads that turn into sales throughout the year. We really enjoy the benefits of being at the show for 11 years as a Gold Member of CanGift Association. The management team has done an amazing job in organizing one of the biggest trade shows in Canada.
