Meeting at Sheraton Centre Hotel with attendees in-person and via video conference

Recent world developments have created an urgent need for new ways to connect when physical presence at business events is difficult or impossible to achieve. Virtual conference calls have become the new norm and are likely to become a mainstay going forward for conferences, interviews, training sessions, and other business events.

Companies in Toronto and throughout the world have adapted in the face of these new challenges. Meeting and event spaces that once regularly hosted throngs of attendees are now using new communication technologies to create hybrid spaces that allow for a combination of onsite attendance and remote participation.

There are some key factors to consider when selecting your Toronto virtual conference meeting venue. A major challenge is how to adequately address the inclusivity of remote participants, so they can effectively experience the activities. Consider the following virtual meeting and event spaces as a sampling of Toronto hybrid venues that can successfully accommodate your virtual conference or meeting needs.

One of Canada’s largest news organizations, The Globe and Mail Centre, is an ideal venue for your hybrid meeting. Spacious conference rooms with panoramic city views have all the capacity required to provide high-production communications worldwide. Located in Toronto’s King East Design District, they can accommodate up to 400 onsite guests as well. 

The Toronto Reference Library has equipped the Beeton Hall Events Centre with hybrid conferencing equipment. Their flexible room layouts feature 360° imaging technology to ensure the participation of offsite attendees.
