Event Logistics

Bringing personalized high-touch services to conventions, trade shows and other special events. Mendelssohn arranges specialized transportation and customs clearance services for time-sensitive materials.

Anytime, any day, anywhere.
The details involved in mounting a special event are overwhelming. Mendelssohn takes the weight off your shoulders.

We have set the standard of service for customs clearance and transportation for conventions, trade shows and special events for over 30 years. Our in-depth knowledge of the unique requirements of event-driven, time-sensitive logistics combined with our innovative outlook led us to pioneer the seamless "one-stop" solution for event managers and exhibitors. 

Focus. It's what sets us apart from our competitors. We focus 100% on the customs and transportation requirements of your event. Where success or failure is measured in minutes, not days. We're deeply involved in the business. We work alongside government officials to continually streamline processes for international exhibitors. 

We ensure your success
Mendelssohn Event Logistics has created innovative solutions to ensure your success and peace of mind. In Canada we invented the concept of "official show broker" to streamline the planning, coordination and mounting of entire shows all the way through to the last moment of move-out.

We initiated the "border-to-show" customs clearance process to guarantee there are no delays between the border and your event venue. Materials shipped in bond by Mendelssohn are processed by Customs after they have been delivered. 

We've contributed to the success of countless events, conventions and trade shows - over 750 a year. The results speak for themselves. A genuinely superior level of hands-on service has helped us attain an industry market share of over 80% - much of that from repeat business that has already enjoyed the Event Logistics advantage. 

We expect the unexpected
Sometimes the unexpected still happens. If it does, you'll see why people say Mendelssohn Event Logistics excels at exceptions. We have a sophisticated communications network linking the most committed, experienced team of people in the business. We have a network of offices at all major border crossings along the U.S.-Canada border and at airports, sea ports and other strategic locations in both countries. And we have resources. Mendelssohn is far and away the industry leader in North American Event Logistics, customs brokerage, transportation management and integrated logistics services. And, Event Logistics is its specialized business devoted exclusively to the trade show and special event market. 

We get it done
All that adds up to the fact that, come what may, we'll do whatever it takes to get your goods there.

Anytime, any day, anywhere.
We guarantee it.
