If you are looking for a Toronto event venue downtown to hold your next event, here is maybe a space you haven’t thought about yet.

The Toronto Stock Exchange offers event facilities for rental within the heart of Toronto’s financial district with accessibility to PATH, and Toronto public transit.

You will have the possibility to rent the Gallery and/or the Studio which is more for intimate events such as small luncheons.  These spaces are popular for listed companies or other business to business events.

The TMX Broadcast Centre Gallery has a capacity of 100 theatre style, 72 in full rounds, 64 classroom or 200 reception.  The room rental rate has all-inclusive technology which means you will enjoy in-house screens, projectors, mics, risers, podium, audio recording and more available at no additional charge. A technician from the TSX will work with your company throughout the event and a security guard is mandatory for event rentals.  Many use the space as a perfect location for broadcasting.

Besides, the upper level mezzanine is also available for use at no extra cost, and this can be set up as a satellite kitchen, if the caterers are doing hot passed hors d’oeuvres, or as a lounge, with a bar and furniture.

Rooftop Rendezvous: Temptation Accomplished

On Thursday 15th, The Rooftop rendezvous was THE rendezvous not to miss! Indeed, The CUBE nightclub hosted more than 400 guests from CityEvents and Shanny in the City for the Rooftop rendezvous!

The night was an opportunity to taste a new cider: Tempt Cider, with strawberry and lime flavors, but also to enjoy the presence of artists and an incredible view on the city and the CN Tower.

The CUBE nightclub brings you into a parallel world. From the entrance you leave the city and its buildings to enter in a small corridor looking like the path to a secret garden, to be finally guided to a rooftop patio, a true bubble inside the city.  CUBE Nightclub is a new Toronto event venue used by a variety of groups.

This night was subject to all temptations, from the sweet & fruity cider offer by two masked ladies, to the electrifying music and the lights of the city. Hard not to be entranced by the atmosphere! But, more than temptation, it was also an excellent moment of schmoozing and networking in a pleasant place, and the occasion to get a painting portrait from the artists presents all night.

From this incredible night, we only have retained one thing: temptation accomplished! #gettempted.
