StartWell vs 4 alternative meeting space venues in Toronto

Hundreds of companies from all industries rely on StartWell for their on-demand corporate meeting and event space needs – here are some of the alternatives they have considered and feedback we’ve received on why we’re different:

Restaurants don’t offer private rooms, and even when they do, rooms may be too small, tech infrastructure isn’t adequate plus bookings require catering services – which can be expensive and irrelevant.

Hotels usually have larger (200+) person banquet halls and involve multi-vendor planning, with unionized staff raising costs and communication barriers to provide in-room and live-streamed presentation solutions.

Coworking spaces, usually only have small space allocations of meeting rooms to serve their desks/offices – an industry standard is 10 meeting rooms seats per 100 desks, so a 5k sqft space may only have one small meeting room.

Conference centres, like the Metro Convention Centre,  don’t provide a comfortable environment or complimentary hospitality services. Though functional for quick meetings, they are not environments where teams enjoy full-day or longer sessions and are usually not at retail/street level.
