We have implemented several steps to make it easy for exhibitors to participate in EAST COAST GUITAR FESTIVAL. After 30 years of trade show experience we know how much work it takes to plan and coordinate the steps necessary to participate in a retail trade show.


We have a team of volunteers on board to help. Whether it be setting up or taking down your display, transport from the airport to the Cunard Centre or help manning your booth, we have the willing volunteers ready to jump in.

Hours of Operation

We have structured our trade show hours with the exhibitor in mind. Exhibitors will have time available (as late as Saturday morning) in which you can arrive and set up your display. Also, our Sunday 4:30pm close allows for efficient travel.

Friday set up 9am – 9pm
Saturday set up 6am to 10am
Open to the public Saturday 10am – 5pm
Sunday 10am – 4:30pm

Incoming and Outgoing Freight

Put us in contact with your freight carrier. We will coordinate any incoming freight for your display. We will receive it, store it and coordinate the return shipping by your freight carrier, all at no extra charge.


As the largest city in Atlantic Canada, Halifax has plenty to offer. There are plenty of hotels within walking distance of the Cunard Centre. Most of the major chains are represented and we are currently negotiating for a host hotel to offer affordable accommodations during your stay.


Halifax is serviced by Stanfield International Airport. Direct flights are available from most major hubs using Air Canada, West Jet, United Airlines and other major carriers. Customs clearance is located at Stanfield for both US and Canadian entry.

Affordable Costs

Our price structure is designed to be affordable for our exhibitors. As a thank you for participating in our Inaugural Event, those exhibitors who make an early commitment will receive preferred rates.

Manufacturers Showcase

A special display will be set to showcase any new products. It’s a great place to let the enthusiast gather info and try out your latest product. There are no additional costs for this service, for companies who have purchased exhibit space or for sponsors of one of our feature events.
