Dear Beauty Professional

Your health and safety is our first priority.

As you already know, we have been working with the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) activity in Canada.

As we are one of the larger trade shows at the MTCC and therefore on their priority list, we were able to POSTPONE the ESI Toronto Trade event to AUGUST 23 and 24, 2020.

If you already have a ticket for this year’s Toronto conference, dated April 19-20, it will automatically apply to the new dates. No action required on your part.

If you wish to buy a ticket, the new deadline date to SAVE 33% is now JULY 13, 2020

Until then, please be safe and remember to wash your hands!

The ESI Team

UPDATE from the Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is working closely with industry partners to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 and taking direction from provincial, Canadian and global health authorities. Ontario officials are actively working with partners in the health care system at the municipal, provincial and federal levels to identify, prevent and control this emerging global health issue.

The risk posed by COVID-19 in Ontario remains low. Canada continues to be a safe travel, meetings and events destination.

We would like to assure you that the seamless operation of events in our Centre and the health and safety of all our visitors and employees remains our top priority.


Increased Preventative Measures

  • Our cleaning services team has increased the disinfection of commonly used surfaces, including escalator handrails and door handles.
  • Extra hand sanitizing stations have also been placed throughout the Centre to encourage everyone to disinfect their hands more frequently.
  • Signs encouraging proper hygiene inside washrooms have been posted.
  • Employees have been reminded to take increased measures to reduce the risk of transmission of the flu and respiratory illness, and to stay at home if they are sick.


Travel Health and Safety

The Government of Canada has implemented additional screening measures in all airports, including Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

The Public Health Agency of Canada is actively monitoring the situation and working with the WHO and other international partners to gather additional information. Please verify travel health recommendations regularly as they may change.

Message from Bernard Renaud Promoter and owner of ESI

The ESI team has begun receiving questions about the status of our Toronto 2020 trade event with regards to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. 

At this time, there are no changes scheduled for ESI Toronto 2020 and it will continue as planned, just like all other shows and events in Toronto

We have considered the current evidence-based science on COVID-19 from authoritative sources, such as the World Health Organization; the importance of the health, safety and well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners. ESI is also in regular contact with the Ontario Ministry of Health, who advises us that the current risk of transmission is low. Neither the Ministry of Health nor Toronto Public Health have given any direction to limit public gatherings at the present time.

As an event focused on a well-being profession, we will be following best practices to ensure a safe environment throughout the entire facility. In addition to regular health and safety procedures, we will implement additional measures at the ESI Toronto 2020 event, such as increased cleaning and disinfection; greater availability of alcohol-based hand sanitizer; and signs reminding attendees of good hygiene practices.

The ESI Team will continue to monitor and adapt its response as the situation evolves. We will provide further updates accordingly.

The Ministry of Health is providing regular updates and guidance on COVID-19
