The Design Exchange 
The Design Exchange (DX) is located in the former home of the Toronto Stock Exchange. The building was originally built in the 1930’s, and designated a heritage property in 1978. The building combines streamlined modern, art deco and stripped classicism and features elegant proportions and sophisticated detailing.

The Trading Floor
Located on the second floor of the Design Exchange, the Trading Floor is ideal for gala dinners and large functions such as annual general meetings, lectures and press conferences. The room is equipped with sound and lighting systems and a theatre-style seating arrangement is available.

The Art Gallery of Ontario 
Founded in 1900 by a group of private citizens as the Art Museum of Toronto, the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is one of the largest art museums in North America. Re-opening in the Fall of 2008, the AGO’s new facility will have 583,000 square feet, with an innovative architectural design by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry.

The AGO's unique new venue accommodates and inspires a full range of corporate and social events. With over 7,000 sq. ft. it accommodates receptions (450), dinners (300) and dinner & dancing (250).

The Royal Ontario Museum
The ROM is an inspiringly unique venue for your next event. In June of 2007 the ROM unveiled its dramatic new expansion, the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind. Considered to be one of the most challenging construction projects in North America for its engineering complexity and innovative methods, the Lee-Chin Crystal is composed of five interlocking, self-supporting prismatic structures that co-exist but are not attached to the original ROM building, except for the bridges that link them.   

The ROM is a premier venue for events and parties, as a meeting planner you can celebrate and entertain in a memorable way, amidst the gathered grace, beauty and achievements that have defined humanity and nature throughout the ages.
Able to accommodate up to 2,000 guests, you are sure to leave your attendees with a lasting impression.

The Distillery District
The Distillery District was originally founded in 1832 by brothers in law Gooderham and Worts. Set on 13 acres in downtown Toronto, the forty plus buildings constitute the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. Today, many Hollywood films, TV shows and music videos have used the Distillery District for filming. Chicago and Cinderella Man are two examples. (For a full listing click here.)

The Fermenting Cellar
Erected in 1859 as part of the famous Gooderham and Worts Distillery, the Fermenting Cellar now plays a leading role in Toronto’s first pedestrian-only village. The arts and culture that thrives throughout the Distillery District is no less apparent in this spectacular venue. Infinite event-planning potential lies within the rustic limestone walls and 35-foot, vaulted ceilings. The exceptionally preserved Victorian era architecture attracts the most elite parties including world-renowned events such as the Toronto International Film Festival.
