FanExpo staff told us and a group of others after we had left to grab a coffee from outside that they were at capacity and wouldn’t let us back in. We had been there for 90 mins and when we asked for some money back for their error (they apparently were not at capacity) they just kept giving us lines like “Saturday is historically our busiest day”. Will not go back - complete waste of $.

Staff and security were extremely rude. My stamp faded because they used the cheapest ink they could find and security made it seem like it was my fault. The staff also had no idea where anything was. Overall Terrible management.

Came here for the auto show for the first time. We were pleased that everything is so accessible. We found the restrooms to be very clean. The various food concessions were very good and eliminated our need to go outside to eat. The staff were extremely helpful to us not only in getting tickets and directions but also in tips about the show which made our visit much more enjoyable. The venue is very spacious which for the size of the auto show is excellent. Being in a wheelchair it was good that nothing was cramped. The slopes on the auto displays made it easy to move about. We spent 2 whole days here seeing everything and enjoying every minute of it. Will definitely come again.

Huge and modern center. Probably one the the most moderns in the world. The checking balcony may registar more than 20 people at the same time. I went here for an MBA fair, sponsored by Canadian schools. It was not that crowded but the lectures were good. Fast wifi good location for public transportation.

No matter where we go in the world we should be professional at all times.....even you Mr.Chou. How would you feel if someone went and treated your employees the way you treated mine this weekend?

the Toronto convention center is located in a part of Toronto close to entertainment and hotels and easy access to transit
a fairly modern facility and also has ample parking if attending a convention here it will be at less an enjoyable venue

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 to go to the north side on front - its usally the south side that is the main entrance which makes no sense. But the whole event layout makes no sense. Even as a seasoned visitor to this event it still a frustrating gong show. It does not matter if you pre buy tickets (guess what- they can over sell!) or plan - the event does not learn and each year the line ups get worse and their staff uninformed. What bothers me the most is this is a very expensive event, starting with adminision and everything from photo ops which can be up to $100.00, autographs average $60 plus food 3.75 for a bottle of water it adds up quickly. Bring your own drinks and snacks. Line ups can be several hours, I waited 1 hour for food at the food truck and the event organizers can really improve the experience by a better layout and trained staff. Did not appreciate when you are spending a lot of money and you are being yelled at by staff and security all day to keep on moving when its clear there is bottle necks, maybe the staff can be trained to direct people instead of yelling. This is not an event for young kids either, there is too much pushing and what not for little ones, I personally would not bring any babies for kinds under 15. after a couple of year going to this event I will be dropping it from my event list, its too much of a money grab and very unorganized layout and staff that makes the experience poor and disappointing. Its less and less fun each year for me. I was there from 11-7 and i stood in line for approx 6 of those hours and it did not have to be like that if it was organized better. They need to think of the fans first. This could be such a better event, there is so many people that take the time to dress up and look forward to this. Note: great costumes! But this is for die hard fans only.

I have spoken at a conference in two of the break-out rooms and found the rooms comfortable, well-equipped and spacious. On November 5, 2019 I attended the Cardinal's Dinner in the large dining hall, and again everything went smoothly, from the reception halls to the dinner for 1600 people. Service is efficient and the food was good! One of the best features of the Metro Convention Centre is that there is indoor access from Union Station, from both GO and VIA trains - perfect for bad weather. I've arrived by UP Express from the airport and walked to a previous Cardinal's Dinner while a rainstorm raged outside - so helpful. The south-side parking lot is wonderful for those who are heading for the Gardner Expressway - the first traffic light south on leaving on the south lot takes you to Lakeshore Boulevard - that helps to make leaving downtown faster! Parking is close to the CN Tower, the Aquarium, hockey arena, downtown in general.

It is a great place for conventions, but it is very big, so be ready for a lot of walking. It needs maps posted in high traffic areas to improve experience.

The convention centre is like any other so I'll just talk about location.
Great location.. .on the south side you are near Rogers center and CN tower. and Ripley Aquarium.
On the North side you are on Front street.. which has heaps of bars restaurants and near lots of the shows.
covered walk way connects you to Union Train Station, CN tower, Financial District , Royal York Hotel.
In theory you could walk underground from Eaton Center to The convention center.. so dont worry about a coat in winter!
