Attended Fan Expo 2014 and I must say that despite the sheer amount of people attending the convention the TCC exceeded expectations on cleanliness and the amount of space available. It is also in the heart of downtown Toronto and a few minutes walk away from the CN Tower.

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada is a great venue to host conventions. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is on Front Street near the CN Tower and Roger's Centre and divided into two buildings ; the north and south and each of these buildings have 3-5 levels. This allows the events and crowds to be spread-out, but that... More

Great event lots of fun and very clean seeing on how many people passed through the building. Didn't like lingering up on the street to enter event but other then that we had a great time. The people where friendly and the costumes looked great.

Overall the facility was great for the Fan Expo. The staff did a good job trying to keep traffic flowing. Unfortunately, with such a large crowd there were bottlenecks. I would suggest if you take kids to make sure they have games, tablets or books to entertain themselves while in line for events. I loved the kids lounge, first time... More

The center was kept clean and the bathrooms were well maintained. Security was good at times but not well informed or knowledgable when asked questions. The Fan Expo was very crowded, especially on Saturday, and there were times I wasn't let back in because they were cramming too many people into the building. They should not sell so many passes...

For this event at this venue I would suggest you speak to someone that has been to events for tips - at this location as the building is divided into a North and South Side, once you have the layout then study the program for the event. Fiquire out first which entrance you need to go to- while its logical... More

I'm giving this place an excellent review, but I still had something I wasn't happy with. The AC needs to be more powerful! When you know that you're going to have tens of thousands of people in a single location in the summertime you KNOW it's gonna be hot! Need some more powerful AC to keep up with the amount... More

Clean and Modern facility with good handicapped access. The only "non-complaint" was that you have to use two banks of elevators to get to the convention floor(s).

This place was HUGE! It seemed to go on forever going to the lowest level. The artwork was incredible. We loved the black iron snowmen that greeted us as we arrived on the south building. The food at our convention was fantastic!
