Toronto is a great place for conference organisers to run some amazing events, and the venues on offer are world-class. There is a wide selection of hotels available, always a great choice for multi-day conferences with attendees from out of town. These are located all across the metropolitan area, giving you a chance to find your best price and location. With Toronto International Airport an easy half-hour from the centre and ample train service as well, this is a city that is more than prepared to welcome conference attendees from across the globe. There are even several hotel conference venues right at the airport so if ease of arrival is key for your international attendees, you are set.
Hunting for a large-sized conference centre instead? There are numerous dedicated conference centres right in the downtown area, particularly around Harbord Village, Chinatown and Church and Wellesley. Especially take note of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, a convention complex located right on Front St, right in the beating heart of the city, offering easy access to the city’s dining and dancing scene, just in case. The Scotiabank Arena is another large-sized venue available for rent and suitable for large crowds.
When investigating a conference venue, be sure to keep in mind four key non-negotiables:
Once you get your priorities straight and in order, you can start checking out the different types of venues we have on board. Let’s check out the different types of venues, and what you can expect to find with Tagvenue.
Training rooms are tailored perfectly to your needs, from whiteboards and flip charts to screens and comfortable chairs which you can sit in for hours (if that’s how long it takes!). Check out training rooms on our site, and book the ideal location for meetings, trainings and any other corporate events.
In comparison to training rooms, small meeting rooms are ideal for gatherings of up to 15 people. Inside you can find enough space for all your attendees, as well as professional equipment which will be tailored to your meeting needs. A similar concept to training rooms — here you can find boards, charts, monitors, and hopefully expect some coffee and AC. To find small meeting rooms, make sure to filter the amount of guests you’re planning to invite.
Check out the different function spaces available on Tagvenue. Function spaces can look differently since they are made specifically for different types of events. But thanks to the fact that they are so universal, you can guess that they are less formal and more laid-back. If you plan to have a more chilled out meeting with a bigger team, grab a beer and maybe do some networking, then we recommend you take a look at Tagvenue’s awesome selection.
Galleries are specific places. They are not considered the typical meeting or conference venue. But if you’re hosting an art event or a creative show, then booking a gallery might be the option for you. Renting this space can also put a fun spin on the typical meeting. If your attendees tend to be on the more artistic side, then renting a gallery might just be the quirky space you need, even for a serious meet up.
Suites are a little like meeting rooms, but more personal and home-like. What’s the difference? In suites you can find a fridge and a microwave, couches, a couple of work stations, and maybe even a TV! It’s a great space if you’re working as a team, and you don’t get distracted too easily. Perhaps you’re working on an important project together, but can also use some time to relax?
Large event spaces can be both – perfect for huge gatherings and ideal for intimate meetings all at the same time. You can expect to find venues which will be perfect for events that are open to many different organisations and people, but you can also find large rooms which are great for a company gathering, where you don’t want any outsiders joining. These spaces are usually filled with adequate equipment, as well as a bar or even a kitchen if you want to add some pizzazz to the event. With Tagvenue you’ll be able to find the ideal space for your event!

You might find this idea a little peculiar, but how about renting a boat for your upcoming conference? Toronto offers a nice selection of boats, which are perfect for conferences of even up to 250 people. It may not be the usual way to host meetings or events, but it will certainly make it something to remember.
You can find conference venues in Toronto for as little as C$30 per hour. There are many affordable options which are great if you’re looking for something on a budget. However, you will also find locales which fall under much higher prices and can go even as far as C$1500 per hour! Check your budget and plan accordingly. (All data from Tagvenue.)
Check out a range of sizes, starting from around 10 people, and ending at even 600 people standing. With such a big range you have no excuses why you can’t rent a fab conference venue!
Check out the areas of Harbourfront and keep heading up to North York to check out the best venues available. There are also quite a few locales near The Junction and if you head to Wexford you should find some small meeting rooms as well!
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
