Who are We?

The Portables opened in 1979 as a manufacturer of parade floats and custom tradeshow exhibits. Today, we offer a full line of portable, modular and custom exhibits, all manufactured at our 25,000 square foot production facility.

From Portable to Custom, we manufacture trade show exhibits and graphics.
We also provide a host of related Exhibit Marketing products and services such as Exhibit Management, Show Selection, Staff Training and Exhibit Space Planning to cover every
aspect of your program.

What makes us Unique?

National Presence  

With 6 corporate-owned offices across the country, The Portables can respond promptly to any exhibiting emergency request in every major center in Canada, providing companies with custom tradeshow exhibits.


As manufacturer of every product we sell or rent, our first priority is to ensure all of our products are designed to handle the rigors of exhibiting. In situations where the wear and tear of the exhibit world is too much for the display our modular design means we can complete most repairs within 24 hours.

Graphic Expertise  

As one of Canada’s biggest large-format graphic print facilities, we continually invest in top-of-the-line print technology that allows us to represent our clients’ brand messages with vivid imagery and versatile products.


The Portables began as a custom exhibit manufacturer and later perfected its expertise in portable exhibits. Now with our expanded knowledge of portable technology, we’re reinventing the possibilities giving clients the unique custom tradeshow exhibits they desire with all the cost-savings and convenience of portable exhibits.

Education   We continually invest in our exhibiting expertise through our Exhibit Services and Creative Departments. Our Certified Managers of Exhibits (CMEs) and Installation and Dismantling experts are among the best in their field and provide our clients with a wealth of knowledge they can’t get anywhere else.
Products   Simply put, we have the best portable exhibits in the industry! Our custom and custom-portable solutions are unique in design and functionality. No other company in Canada can offer the blend of portable and custom expertise that The Portables does.
Guarantee   Consider this ... most of our competitors are dealers and distributors of other exhibit products and their guarantee is limited to the manufacturer’s warranty. We support our exhibit systems and hardware accessories 100%. No questions asked!
