Northeastern Ontario: Meeting & Conference Venue Guide

In Northeastern Ontario we know BIG. Spanning the area from the French River to the James Bay Coast, our region itself is BIG. Tourists to the area will know that we are home to BIG things: the BIG Nickel, the BIG cow and the BIG chair. Outdoorspeople will know us for our BIG Northern Lights displays, our BIG catch, BIG game, our BIG trails and BIG rides.

Possibly lesser known, is that in Northeastern Ontario—among the old-growth forests, historic waterways, sprawling rural areas and bustling towns and cities—you’ll find state of the art meeting and conference centres for events BIG (or small) and venues for events of all kinds (receptions, awards, screenings, etc.).

Whether you’re hosting a large-scale trade show or convention, or a smaller staff retreat or team-building weekend, there are lots of BIG reasons to choose Northeastern Ontario. We offer accommodations from that range from high-end to completely rustic, and dining options ranging from farm-to-table freshness to sophisticated worldly cuisines. Between meetings, visitors can enjoy a classic tavern or relax at a local spa. BIG comfort, BIG luxury, BIG options.
