Toronto -- The City of Toronto, Canada's largest city, and fourth largest in North America is home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It's a global center for business, finance, arts, and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. Fall in Toronto means more arts events than your imagination can capture, world-changing innovation on display, plus the return of the major league excitement of the Raptors and the Maple Leafs.  Refer to Toronto's official website for the latest information on what to do in Toronto.

 Not far away (a twenty-minute drive from downtown Toronto and 3 minutes from Pearson International Airport) is the International Centre in Mississauga, home to WMS 2017. The facility hosts more than 500 events a year from trade and consumer shows to conferences and galas, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors. The International Centre boasts free parking for over 5,000 vehicles.
