IMATS TORONTO 2014 new venders, Interesting panel/demos, my wish list, travel advisory & eateries.


2013 body paint done on the trade show floor
It's arrive late this year but IMATS is again running on November 22-23 less then 2 weeks away! There also still tickets for both days for the Saturday and Sunday shows for $45. No weekend pass though this time around.

Chances are I'll be arrive at 9:30am or 10am on the Saturday just from the way construction is progressing as I'm coming down (well going north ;) ) by Greyhound.

Again NYX is a no show (SHAME ON YOU!!!) T-T

WIG

This is Arda's Watermelon wig I picked up and I freaking love it! So I'll be wearing her during IMATS this year.

Frends not new, but they're bringing Sigma Brushes to IMATS Toronto for the first time. O_O
Look like they have a full both again of products. They tend to show up every other year so far.
More crazy colour lipstick to check out. 
Back after an absence from last year. The owner Jodie mentioned that she's bringing some Limited Edition colours for this year. ;)
First time at the show but most people know them for their brush soaps. I'm expecting they are bringing the full line of products.
They have eye catching lip shades but also a full range of cosmetics as well.

The sites not active, but I'm betting on this being a reseller of Sephora/Shopper Drug Mart type brands.

Morphe Brushes
Second year at the show and a another runner for inexpensive brushes. But I'm excited for their new synthetics lines.

MUSST
A Quebec based professional makeup re-seller. They also carry Sigma but given it's their first year I'm not sure what they are bringing to the show.

Maqpro, I'm Excited!!!! I hope they have a demo palette.

LOCATION and Travel
If you not a native to the GTA (Greater Toronto area) I thought I'd post this for you about what to expect getting the the MTCC (Metro Toronto Convention Centre) South Building again this year.

The North and South buildings are attached by a walk bridge. The North building is street level on Front Street west of the CN Tower and goes vertically in levels and well as 2 sub floors. While the South building is behind it and is underground for the most part except the lobby level (500 Level).

If you going in by public transit chances are you will be making it to Union Station. Union Station however is going through some serious renovation both street level and inside. Front Street is shut down in front of Union Station (for the drivers), but the building is still functional. For pedestrians/public transit goers inside Union on the street level is attached to the Skywalk  which will take you to both the MTCC North and South builds and beyond (Skydome). This is probably your best way to get there to avoid confusion and it tends to be quite.

You can also walk Front St. east of Union and get to the North building.
MTCC highlighted in red.
Here is a posting about road construction areas for drivers to be aware of per week if you coming into the down town core. 

They also had a coat cheek last year at the MTCC so I'm hopping they will do it again as it might be snowing a bit by that weekend. ;)


FOOD 
Now places to eat, there are plenty of options around the MTCC as this is consider to the Entertainment district. Front street has many options on the main level but there are places underground like across the MTCC is the Canadian Broadcasting Building sub floor has a full food court. Union Stations also as a full food court on the level below street level for cheaper fare.
