Here's what's new at ExPlaceTO for June 2018

FIFA 2026 Comes to Exhibition Place
Exhibition Place is proud to have been a part of the bid that ultimately helped win the United 2026 bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup™.
Save the Date for Arlene Campbell's Retirement Party
After 21 years with Exhibition Place, Arlene Campbell is set to retire on July 31, 2018. Save the date for Arlene's retirement reception on June 25th, from 5–7PM at Beanfield Centre. Invitation to come.
Ron Kostick, Event Service Coordinator, to Retire in July
Our friend and colleague Ron Kostick, Event Service Coordinator, will officially retire from Exhibition Place on July 25th, 2018. For the last 30 years, Ron has worked with clients and tenants on numerous events and shows – always offering his expertise, guidance and assistance. He is a piece of Exhibition Place and Exhibition Place is a part of him. He will be dearly missed.
Getting the Grounds Ready for Summer
It's that time of year again. As we prepare the grounds for our upcoming line-up of outdoor summer events, we'll be doing roadwork, upgrades and setting up stands throughout which may result in road restrictions and delays. Please note that if you are planning to visit Exhibition Place over the next few weeks to give yourself enough time to get to your destination.
King-Liberty Pedestrian Bridge
The City will break ground on the construction of the King-Liberty pedestrian/cycle bridge towards the end of June. This bridge will help to increase pedestrian access from King St. to Liberty Village which will no doubt provide exhibition and conference attendees with another way to get to the grounds. Construction is scheduled to be completed in summer of 2019. Visit the City of Toronto website to learn more about bridge updates and timelines.
