When meeting planners are looking for a unique venue, they often look towards the CN Tower for the answer. Or more correctly, they look up. A national icon, one of the tallest buildings in the world, an architectural and engineering wonder, the CN Tower welcomes over 500 meetings and events each year from themed galas, receptions, parties and film screenings to press launches. It combines a nearly out of this world setting with award-winning cuisine, ambiance and service.
From bottom to top, the CN Tower offers a variety of unique event settings. In addition to fully equipped meeting space at the base, the upgraded Maple Leaf Cinema is now one of the most technically advanced venues for public and private screenings or presentations.
Groups then can meet at the bottom and be whisked to the top aboard glass fronted elevators over a thousand feet skyward for views overlooking the city like no other. Parties at the top include cocktail receptions with awe-inspiring views for 50 or up to 600. The ultimate event can include pre and post dinner parties in Horizons Restaurant or more fine dining at the award winning 360 restaurant.
Want something that will really makes your meeting stand out. Then try team building with EdgeWalks. It is the “World’s Highest External Walk on a Building” (Guinness World Record), a full circle, hands-free walk on a1.5 m wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, EdgeWalk runs 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes.
