Established in 1879 and located on the shores of Lake Ontario, Toronto, the award-winning Exhibition Place is Canada’s largest entertainment venue, attracting over 5.5 million visitors a year. The 192-acre site is an integral component of Toronto and Ontario’s economy, and includes exhibit, trade, and banquet centres, theatre and music buildings, monuments, parkland, sports facilities, and several civic, provincial, and national historic sites.
Health and Safety
Exhibition Place is committed to the highest standards for health & safety and has been recognized as a leader in planning safe and successful events.
Exhibition Place is the first Canadian venue to receive the GBAC Star™ Facility Accreditation. We have also proudly achieved the Safe Travels Stamp designation from the World Travel & Tourism Council and Tourism Industry Association of Ontario.
Exhibition Place boasts the award-winning LEED Platinum Enercare Centre, Canada’s largest exhibition and convention Centre, and the Beanfield Centre LEED Silver conference venue. Since 2004, Exhibition Place has undertaken an environmental stewardship initiative, entitled GREENSmart, which includes the promotion of sustainable development, environmental initiatives and leading-edge green technologies and practices across the site.
Exhibition Place has also officially signed the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge, a global initiative to address climate change across the events and meetings industry, per the targets laid out in the Paris Climate Accord, to commit to achieving net zero by 2050.
Better Connected With Wi-Fi 6
Exhibition Place debuted Wi-Fi 6 at Beanfield Centre this year and it is one of the few venues in Canada with this technology.
Deemed the “next generation of internet,” this cutting-edge network provides better connectivity in high-density space uses such as meetings, conventions and galas where audiences congregate and the demand for bandwidth is high. Through OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access), a new technology in Wi-Fi 6, network performance is greatly improved resulting in frictionless access to the internet especially when large audiences with multiple devices are connected at Beanfield Centre.
