Toronto is Canada’s largest city with a population of 4.7 million people and has recently been ranked as one of the world’s best cities for business. The Toronto Pearson International airport is a quick 60 minute flight from New York City and is within a 90 minute flight to more than 60% of the population.

The city of Toronto is home to one of the largest and most sustainable trade and convention facilities in North America, the Toronto Congress Centre. This major addition doubled the TCC space to one million square feet, and positions the center as one of the greenest trade show facilities in the world.

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) has 600,000 square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the facility hosted the Construct Canada Exposition and Conference as well as the first-ever annual meeting outside the U.S. of the international Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA). Both citywide meetings were Zero Waste Events.

Be sure to take in the Toronto Botanical Gardens, an array of 12 award-winning themed gardens spanning nearly four acres and meeting facilities for up to 300 guests. The buildings are as green as the gardens – the visitor’s center is LEED Silver Certified with an energy-efficient sloping green roof and an award-winning ecologically-conscious design. Their halls, studios and conference rooms – some with private garden courtyards and tranquil water features – accommodate a variety of functions, from intimate gatherings to gala events.

The CN Tower is Toronto’s tallest and most defining landmark. Photos of Toronto are often defined by the building, which stretches more than 1800 feet into the sky. Visitors can test their courage by walking across the glass floor 113 stories above the ground. The first of its kind in the world, the glass floor gives you that dare-to-walk-on-air experience, with only 2.5 inches of glass holding you over 1,100 feet in the air. The tower’s revolving 360 Restaurant offers an award-winning wine list and a spectacular views of the city.

There are more than 38,000 hotel rooms in over 230 hotels. Luxury hotel accommodations include: the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto in the heart of Yorkville, Toronto’s fashionable shopping, dining and entertainment quarter, yet is only five minutes from the business district. InterContinental Toronto Yorkville has sophisticated charm and is the highest rated InterContinental hotel worldwide, this Bloor Street location surrounds you with contemporary elegance. Le Meridien King Edward is Toronto’s first luxury hotel and the city’s only “Leading Hotel of the World.” Just minutes to theatre, shopping and key attractions. Celebrating 100 years of excellence. The Park Hyatt features 346 oversize guest rooms, conference facilities for 10-400, roof lounge, Morton’s of Chicago Steakhouse, Annona Restaurant, Mezzanine Lounge and Stillwater Spa.
