Our Heritage

The International Centre has been one of Canada’s only privately owned trade and consumer show exhibition facilities for decades. When it opened in 1972, the facility had 260,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space. Since then, we’ve expanded to approximately 548,000 sq. ft., offering you an ideal mix of exhibit, meeting, and special event services.

Minutes from Toronto Pearson International, one of the largest airports in North America, The International Centre is closely linked to Canada’s aviation history. 
During the 1950s, The International Centre site was used to develop the AVRO Arrow, a technological marvel and part of Canada’s aviation lore. The site was purchased by a group of private investors from DeHavilland in 1971, which led to its current use as a significant multi-purpose facility.

Having grown immensely in size and Client base, The International Centre hosts over 450 shows and events annually.
