Function Space at the TCC for 2017
Sunday, 25 December 2016 17:19
A notice to our attendees that Anime North will be unable to use the Tannenbaum Ballroom (Main Stage) in the North Building of the TCC in 2017. The Federal Conservative Party of Canada will be using this space in connection with their leadership vote that weekend. Anime North will not be using any space in the North Building this year. Our Main Stage will be set-up once again in the Plaza Ballroom of the International Plaza Hotel (soon to be the Delta by Marriott Toronto Airport) for this year only; it will return to the TCC North Building in 2018.
We will be using additional function space at the front section of the TCC South Building for guest functions and other events that have been held in the Plaza Ballroom the past two years. Attendees will be asked to check oversized props and the like at a provided coat check when attending functions in this part of the building ONLY, due to the presence of artwork mounted in the hallways.
