Corporate Event Venues Booking Guide

When you need to book a venue in Toronto for your next great corporate event, you may find yourself stuck for inspiration. But if your goals are clear, you are sure to find the right place. Toronto is a great city for corporate event planning, with hundreds of venues of all sizes, and easily navigable neighbourhoods to suit any need. Here are some tips and tricks for finding corporate event venues in Toronto:

  • If you are hunting for a smaller venue for a company social event, training or employee retreat look for venues that can create an intimate atmosphere. Check out any of the downtown area venues, particularly ones with great locations and panoramic views. You can also look into some of the larger entertainment venues such as banqueting halls if getting your staff to mingle is your intention. Restaurants, particularly those with a bar area, could also be a good fit for a smaller crowd.
  • If you need a bigger, more formal venue for clients or potential clients, look into some of the venues that hold 60 or more people. Check out some blank canvas venues in the Entertainment District, which will allow you to host your guests just as you like. You might even hunt down the venues located in, believe it or not, the Toronto Reference Library. You may not be cosying up with a good book here, but you will definitely be impressing your clients with your good taste! Larger dining rooms and ballrooms might also be a good venue choice for a crowd.
  • For larger crowds check out Toronto’s numerous convention and conference centres, which will hold an eager corporate audience of 650 and more. Toronto is also known for its diversity, so if your audience isn’t from Canada you may want to consider holding your event at one of the city’s many cultural centres or theatres. For a unique event venue, Toronto has many locales that will leave your attendees impressed. From the historic Distillery District to the contemporary Harbourfront Centre, you can find places that accommodate large crowds and your event’s needs. These larger-sized venues would be great for a sales kick-off, a large-scale conference or a trade show.

Corporate Event Venues in Toronto FAQ

How much does it cost to rent a corporate event venue in Toronto?

If you're looking for a large space with many rooms and amenities, expect to pay more for your rental. For example, if you want to host a cocktail party for 200 people in a room with an attached bar, the cost might be $250-$500 per hour. If you need a space that can accommodate 250 people with an attached bar and kitchen, expect to pay between $500-$1500+ per hour.

If you're looking for a smaller space, such as an auditorium or conference room, the price will also vary based on what amenities are included. The average cost of renting an auditorium is around $150-$200 per hour but could go as high as $500+ per hour depending on its size and other features. (All data from Tagvenue.)

Which areas of Toronto are best for hosting a corporate party?

Toronto is a large, diverse city with a multitude of options for hosting a corporate event. If you're looking for an indoor venue with gorgeous decor and a high-end vibe, check out the Distillery District or Yorkville areas. If you're looking for an outdoor venue with a unique setting and lots of space, try Liberty Village or the waterfront. If you are looking for an area with lots of bars and restaurants, go no further than The Entertainment District. You can also find venues in The Financial District, which is ideal if you're looking for a venue that's close to hotels and other facilities.

What kind of venues can I hire for a corporate event in Toronto?

When you're planning a corporate event in Toronto, there are so many options! You can rent a space that's already complete and ready to go, or you can rent out a blank canvas venue like galleries and create your own event space. You can also choose from spaces with lots of different features, like restaurants, party rooms and team-building venues. If you want something more formal or upscale, consider looking into convention and conference centres. And don't forget about venues like hotels! Hotels often have banqueting halls available for corporate events, and they're a great choice if you want to throw an event that's classy and elegant.

What kind of food can I serve at a corporate event?

The food you serve at a corporate event is, of course, the most essential part of any event. It's the one thing that can make or break your company's reputation and brand image. The good news is that there are lots of options for what kind of food you can serve, and the venue's in-house catering team can provide you with guidance on what would best suit your event's needs. You may also want to consider hiring an outside caterer if you have a specific vision for the food you want to serve (and if the venue allows these services). You can go fancy with a sit-down dinner and waiters in tuxedos if you want to impress your guests. Or you could keep things simple with finger foods and drinks on the go. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it's something that fits your brand — don't just throw together whatever sounds good at the last minute!
