Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto Reaches Out to Meeting Planners

The Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto is reaching out to meeting planners with the “Spring into Summer” meetings and events package. The package includes:

One complimentary guestroom per 40 booked
Complimentary Internet, local or 1-800 calls in guestrooms
Complimentary one wired or five wireless Internet connections in meeting rooms
10 percent discount on SWANK AV rental

The Trump features 12,000 square feet of meeting space over two floors. When it opens in June, the Presidential Suite (No. 3005) will sprawl out over 4,000 square feet and is ideal for CEOs: It has its own media room with projector screen and plasma display for presentations and screenings, and access to a boardroom and lounge. There’s also a full dining room and kitchen. Good to know: Attaché service (providing personalized touches and serving as a liaison between the guest and the concierge) can be arranged for any room, as can in-suite chef service. Groups can book the whole floor. (While none of the suites connect to one another, booking the floor guarantees privacy.)

Planners who want to provide entertainment activities for their meetings group could look into one of the city’s many theaters. Many of the shows are limited runs at seasonal houses like Canadian Stage, which has been home to numerous world and Canadian premiers over the years. The theater’s season ends this month with a new production of Marivaux’s classic The Game of Love and Chance, and the 2012-13 season begins in October with a multimedia piece called Tear the Curtain!.

Toronto also gets many touring productions of Broadway hits, so shows like Shrek, West Side Story and others will often be in town. Conversely, many Broadway-bound shows also get their start in Toronto: The upcoming musical adaptation of the cheerleading movie Bring it On will be running at the Ed Mirvish Theatre (formerly the Canon Theater) through early June. (Visit www.mirvish.com/shows/bringitonthemusical for tickets.)

War Horse, a hit in both London and New York (and recently adapted into an Oscar-nominated movie), has settled into an open-ended run at the Princess of Wales Theatre. While the play, a drama about a boy and his horse and the war that separates them, is great for families, some scenes are very intense, and younger children might be disturbed by the depictions of warfare. Everyone else will be dazzled by the puppetry that brings the “horses” to life. (Visit www.mirvish.com/shows/warhorse for tickets.)

Soulpepper is a highly regarded repertory company that presents classics, modern classics and new works. Some upcoming productions include David Mamet’s Hollywood satire Speed-the-Plow, Neil Simon’s comedy The Sunshine Boys and Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and Death of a Salesman. Before any of those productions reach the stage, however, local playwright Ins Choi’s new comedy Kim’s Convenience will be featured, giving visitors a chance to discover an up-and-coming Canadian talent. (Visit www.soulpepper.ca for tickets to all the shows.)
