Conference Venues Booking Guide

Toronto is a great place for conference organisers to run some amazing events, and the venues on offer are world-class. There is a wide selection of hotels available, always a great choice for multi-day conferences with attendees from out of town. These are located all across the metropolitan area, giving you a chance to find your best price and location. With Toronto International Airport an easy half-hour from the centre and ample train service as well, this is a city that is more than prepared to welcome conference attendees from across the globe. There are even several hotel conference venues right at the airport so if ease of arrival is key for your international attendees, you are set. 

Hunting for a large-sized conference centre instead? There are numerous dedicated conference centres right in the downtown area, particularly around Harbord Village, Chinatown and Church and Wellesley. Especially take note of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, a convention complex located right on Front St, right in the beating heart of the city, and offering easy access to the city’s dining and dancing scene, just in case. The Scotiabank Arena is another large-sized venue available for rent and suitable for large crowds.

When investigating a conference venue, be sure to keep in mind 4 key non-negotiables. 

  • Is the area easily accessible and does it possess sufficient parking? If it is hard to reach, your event may start off on the wrong foot, and this could affect attendance. Make sure your guests are aware of any restrictions well before the event.
  • Is the venue the right size for the crowd you expect? Does it have sufficient breakaway rooms for panels and other meetings? If the venue is too small there will be unpleasant crowding. This may also restrict your attendance capability if there are official restrictions on the number of people who can fit in one space.
  • Are you clear on the availability of professional staff and catering options? This can be added costs, so make sure you are clear on these issues from the start and get everything in writing.
  • Will the venue provide adequate and up to date equipment? Your attendees will come expecting to have access to modern technologies. Microphones and AV equipment, screens, WiFi, and online access to conference information. Make sure that the venue you rent can help you satisfy these requirements, otherwise you will need to bring in outside vendors.
