All the tools, technology and support needed to host world-class virtual and hybrid events from our event studio in downtown Toronto.

Our unique space provides a comfortable and intimate setting for any type of corporate event – from a short broadcast to multi-day conferences.

A central AV booth broadcasts clear audio and crisp HD footage from multiple cameras on stage and we can record or live-stream through any software platform.

Plus, breakout sessions can be run on campus simultaneously – we have multiple meeting rooms with 1080HD conference cameras and presentation screens.
