Smaller Urban Centres

Ontario's smaller cities deliver urban amenities and small-town charm. Affordable and convenient to get around, they offer group-friendly meeting facilities, fun activities and diverse cultural attractions.

Less than an hour from Toronto, Hamilton moves groups seamlessly from downtown meetings to team-building activities at the area's conservation areas or galas at the Royal Botanical Gardens or the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

Grand historical architecture and a beautiful downtown waterfront highlight Ontario's oldest city. The choice of meeting space is wide, thanks to full-service conference hotels, Queen's University's lecture halls and Donald Gordon Conference Centre. Cruise the scenic 1000 Islands or tour historic Fort Henry.

The Thames River, Covent Garden Market and double-decker bus tours reflect the British heritage of this vibrant city. Great meeting spaces include Budweiser Gardens, the London Convention Centre, Centennial Hall and IACC-approved Spencer Conference Centre.

Only five minutes from Detroit, Windsor boasts a diverse array of venues capable of hosting groups, from Caesars Windsor, one of Canada’s largest casino convention resorts to the Art Gallery of Windsor. Take a day trip to Pelee Island for wine tasting or enjoy great golf.

Other unique and memorable meeting destinations include Barrie, Burlington, Cambridge, Cornwall, Guelph, Kitchener/Waterloo and Oakville.
