Hosting an event in London, Ontario?
With its vast green space and numerous historic structures, London boasts the same world-class amenities of larger metropolitan cities but with a distinctly more relaxed feel. Located in southwestern Ontario, the city is less than a two-hour drive from both Toronto and Detroit. In fact, it is within one day’s drive of over 150 million North Americans. Also accessible by air, the London International Airport is expanding its reach. In recent years, it has opened a new terminal and added more direct flights to destinations in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
A wealth of meeting and event venues await once inside the city. The RBC Place London boasts over 6,500 square meters of exhibit space. From five salons and boardrooms to an elegant column-free ballroom, the centre features numerous flexible rooms for banquets, meetings, tradeshows and more. Its downtown location also places the centre within walking distance of thousands of hotel rooms, including those of the attached Hilton London Ontario.
The Western Fair Entertainment Centre is another purpose-built option for meetings and events in London. Boasting numerous impressive spaces of nearly 40,370 square meters combined, the Western Fair is ideal for a range of events, from large-scale conferences to intimate receptions. With on-site catering and free wireless Internet, the fairgrounds are more than capable of making any affair run smoothly.
Aside from its larger facilities, London has much to offer in the way of unique, exciting venues. Add punch to a presentation for 150 to over 800 guests at the Grand Theatre, one of only nine Category A theatres in Canada. Museum London, the city’s premiere art and history showcase, offers over 750 square meters of meeting space among its galleries and cafe.
London’s great offerings place it on par with larger metropolitan cities such as Toronto and Montreal. Unlike these bustling capitals, however, London comes at a more affordable price. In fact, hotel room rates in the city average C$126, compared to Toronto’s rate of C$167.16 per night. With its first-class facilities and affordable price point, it’s no surprise that organizations such as the Independent Meeting Planners Association of Canada, Humanities and Social Sciences Federation of Canada, and Canadian Golf Superintendents Association have all chosen London to host their events.
