If you don’t know about the Living Arts Centre, you should because it’s a spectacular modern event space located just 20 minutes from Pearson in the heart of Mississauga, across from one of Canada’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment districts.
It’s a beautiful, surprisingly flexible 225,000 square feet multi-purpose venue that offers a unique setting for meetings, conventions, trade shows, seminars, conferences, appreciation events, weddings, and much more.
The space includes a landmark atrium and three presentation-ready theatres (Hammerson Hall, RBC Theatre, and Rogers Theatre), seven professionally equipped visual art studios, twelve meeting rooms, a beautiful in-house restaurant, and a whole on-site catering operation.
Architecturally beautiful inside and out, the LAC is one of only a handful of venues across Canada that genuinely competes on a global stage for international productions, events, and conferences, but it’s the domestic destination event industry that should be taking a second look at this remarkable space.
It’s going to be years before the international destination business is back to pre-covid numbers, so domestic destination planners need to look closer to home for spaces able to cater to the unique needs of destination events. The LAC is surrounded by restaurants and offers some of the best shopping in the country, multiple entertainment options, and hotels, all within walking distance.
There are accessible parking spots in both levels of the underground parking garage, with an elevator that moves guests between all building levels, including parking. Parking is free with an accessibility tag.
Great venues great locations and a great city are not the only reasons to plan your next event in Mississauga, they also have an event hosting program designed to help you and you can access that here https://www.visitmississauga.ca/meet/event-hosting-program/
