Hi There! If you are browsing this list you are likely to be in charge of sourcing an event space rental for your upcoming corporate event.
There are many challenges and it can be stressful planning an event, but I am here to help you through first-hand experience. As a veteran event planner, I can provide valuable information and recommendations through extensive research and personal observations.

As an event planner, I have personally sourced multiple venues, visited many of my client’s functions and participated in liaising with the venue personnel to ensure that no detail could be overlooked.

The thing to remember is that the choice of venue can make or break the event. The event venue sets the stage for the entire event. In addition, you must acknowledge the attendees’ experience and expectations. So, choose carefully and thoughtfully.

Let’s consider the following when choosing your venue:

  • The nature or theme of the event
  • Budget
  • Location
  • Accessibility
  • Parking
  • Number of attendees
  • Catering availability
  • AV equipment
  • Indoors or outdoors

Taking all these factors into account I would like to share with you some of my favorite venues in and around Toronto that will help make your corporate events memorable.
I have categorized them to make the decision easier for you.
