Ideas That Add Wow!

Turn up the event wattage and make lasting memories by tapping into Toronto’s vast network of venues, culture and talent. Brainstorming creative ideas that add value and showcase our beautiful destination is our specialty here at Tourism Toronto. Plus we can put you in touch with all you need to make the extraordinary happen.

To get you started, here are a few easy-to-plan suggestions that are guaranteed crowd pleasers: 

The sky’s the limit: Boasting one of North America’s loveliest skylines leaves little doubt about the plentitude of venues offering a bird’s eye vantage. From elegant hotel rooftop patios, skyscraper-high fine-dining and unique boardrooms, to chic cloud-perched bar lounges and, of course, the tallest event venue/restaurant in the world, all that’s left to do is choose a day or evening event start time. Remind guests to bring their cameras!

Take it outside: So you think we’re all about the snow? Well think again. From spring through to fall, take advantage of our warm temperate climate with outdoor gatherings in vast green spaces, delightful courtyards and party-size patios. In winter, surprise delegates with teambuilding ice-carving challenges and twilight skating.

Experience the city’s renaissance: Our arts community has been busy, reinventing itself with stunning renovations at our landmark museums and art gallery plus adding a spectacular ballet-opera house. All offer grand reception areas that inject an upscale cultural undercurrent into your event.

A date with history: Step back in time by hosting your event or meeting in one of the city’s heritage settings. Play off the backdrop of a working pioneer village, a palatial castle in the city, an elegant historic mansion or an entire city block of cobblestone streets lined with restored circa 1800s industrial buildings that offer the perfect canvas for novel events.

Tour extraordinaire: Arrange an event infused with the entertainment and flavours of the over 100 cultures that give Toronto its diverse community roots. Skip the themed food stations and treat guests to a hands-on multicultural neighbourhood experience that leads them on a customized “grazing” tour of the city’s foremost multi-ethnic neighbourhoods.

Add drama: Toronto is entertainment central with a lively theatre district home to world-renowned productions and musical talent. Premiere a theatre outing with the added value of meet-the-cast cocktails, pre-event dinner receptions and VIP backstage tours.

Anchors aweigh: Make your event a floating success by making the most of Toronto’s lakefront location. Whisk your landlubbers to a gala-event cruise on a tall-masted ship, a sight-seeing boat tour or an aquatic team-building challenge that puts them in the seat of a sailboat, canoe, kayak or dragon boat.

Enter a Zen moment: Refresh weary meeting goers with an invitation to relax and spa. Create an on-site oasis of luxurious calm where delegates give themselves over to massage therapists and sip teas between activities. For ultimate effect, several city spas offer inspired space with the makings for pulling off the perfect feng shui event.
