The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), also known as the Ex, is affectionately known as one of the great annual end-of-summer traditions and it’s back for its 138th season. It is the largest community event in Canada and one of the top five fairs in North America, welcoming up to 1.6 million visitors each year.

Considered a national icon and a must-see attraction in Toronto – the CN Tower is arguably the most recognizable landmark in the city. While it is one of Toronto’s top attractions, it’s also a corporate venue for hosting meetings and events of up to 2,000 people. From its spectacular views and award-winning cuisine to the flexible meeting space (including a private in-house theatre and revolving restaurant), the CN Tower is an inspired venue for your next event. This Toronto icon is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, standing at 553m/1,815 ft. It also boasts a couple of unique accolades like the world’s highest ‘hands-free’ walk (called the EdgeWalk) at 116 stories above ground, as well as the world’s highest wine cellar according to the Guinness World Records. It opened in 1976 and celebrates its 40th anniversary on June 26th.
