Meetings & Conventions

At Tourism Toronto, we know there’s more to convention planning than choosing a venue and making travel arrangements. Much of it hinges upon choosing a city that exceeds delegates’ expectations and inspires them to come back. Hold your next convention, meeting or special event here and you’ll understand why the Greater Toronto Area is the number one convention city in Canada.

Going Beyond
You don’t have to head home when the work is done. Venture further afield. The Greater Toronto Area has more golf courses per capita then anywhere else in the world. In the outer edges of both the city’s east and west ends, you’ll find great historical villages with unique shops and galleries. Niagara Falls is a Wonder of the World, and just beyond the Falls’ spray are the Niagara region’s famous wineries. Extend your stay beyond the convention and explore everything the GTA has to offer.

Out and About
When the day’s meetings are over, delegates have plenty of options to help them kick back. Torontonians hail from all over the globe, bringing their food and entertainment with them. Peruvian food? We’ve got that. Looking for classical Indian Bharata Natyam dance? Take your pick. Broadway musicals also beckon. A lively music scene, ranging from opera to hard-rocking bands, awaits in the city’s concert halls and clubs.
