Setting new standards in the Canadian meetings industry, the achievements of Allstream Centre, at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, continue to be heralded. Named “Best of the Best” by the Toronto Construction Association, the facility was also bestowed with an Award of Distinction for Design from the Ontario Building Envelope Council and an Award of Merit from Interior Design Magazine.
Allstream Centre features more than 160,000 sq. ft. of flexible space, offering planners a stunning venue for meetings and events ranging from 25 to 3,000 delegates. The facility also offers an underground pedestrian link to the Direct Energy Centre, providing seamless access to Canada’s largest exhibition and convention centre.
Allstream Centre also boasts Canada’s largest column-free ballroom, with 44,250 sq. ft. of divisible space. The second level features 20 meeting rooms, with built-in AV technologies that include client-controlled touch-screen panels for easy manipulation of lighting, overhead projections and more.
Behind new glass doors that enclose the 8,000-sq.-ft. space, the Lakeside Room features state-of-the-art technology, including three motorized drop-down screens and ceiling-fl own projectors, a new built-in AV system and blackout blinds. The newly-designed room can accommodate 750, theatre-style, or 300 for banquets.
Located along the Lake Ontario shoreline, Allstream Centre provides delegates with easy access to Toronto Island Airport, the city’s major arteries and the vibrant downtown core. The facility’s location will be greatly enhanced by the proposed 2014 opening of a new 400-room HK Hotel, a luxury property featuring high-end amenities on grounds directly adjacent to Allstream Centre.
