“We’re extremely proud of this video because it highlights all of the amazing, unique and diverse events and tenants that choose Exhibition Place as their home and which bring millions through the Princes’ Gates,” said Dianne Young, CEO, Exhibition Place. “Whether it’s a wedding at Liberty Grand, a battle between knights at Mediaeval Times or an incredible TFC match to name a few, our tenants are very much a part of what makes Exhibition Place so special. This is something no other venue can compete with. Memories are made here and we’re proud to be the backdrop.”

The sales team will use the videos to support their sales missions, conferences and trade shows, and sponsorship activations for new business development.
Exhibition Place is a longstanding feature of the City of Toronto, even before it was known as Toronto. From early trading posts in 1750 and the founding of the Toronto Industrial Exhibition in 1879 to the quick expansion of the grounds over the last 100 years, Exhibition Place established itself early on as a hub of economic activity and a place for industry to showcase innovation that has led to economic growth within Canada.
