These multi-functional spaces on the Atrium level offer state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, high-speed Internet, modern furnishings and natural light, as well as seasonal patio access from several rooms.
The Auditorium and Atrium can accommodate large conferences and exhibition-style events. These flexible spaces can be staged in a variety of ways to help realize your vision.
Our spectacular four-storey, 62-foot-high glass atrium welcomes visitors as they enter the building. Natural light floods this stunning, contemporary space, which is anchored by the original brick facade of the old Toronto General Hospital, built in 1913. This blend of historic and modern architecture provides the perfect backdrop for events ranging from symphony performances and exhibitions to lectures and receptions.
Located on the Lower Concourse, the Auditorium is a single-level, multi-purpose room with approximately 4,700 square feet of usable space and a seating capacity of 350 people. Partitions are available to divide the room into three separate spaces, and portable risers can be used to create theatre-style seating. Multiple ceiling rigging points allow for easy mounting of stage lights and other equipment.
The Auditorium Concourse is a 4,500-square-foot event space that can be used in conjunction with the Auditorium as exhibitor space and/or food and beverage staging area.
