The Direct Energy Centre is in Exhibition Place. As the largest event location in Canada, it has more than 1 million square feet of space.

The historic Ricoh Coliseum, renovated in 2003, is a flexible, intimate venue situated next to the National Trade Centre in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Want to take advantage of Toronto’s lakefront? There are cruise ships large and small to choose from.
