The Importance of Choosing the Right Venue for Your Corporate Event

The Valley View meeting room at Inn On The Twenty in Jordan Village.

Choosing the right venue for your corporate event is almost as important as the event itself! The right event venue is in a great location, provides a range of amenities for your team to enjoy, and can easily accommodate your group.

Depending on what you hope to accomplish at your next corporate event, catering and the right ambience for your event are also significant considerations.

Thankfully, we have a wide variety of venues to meet your needs and tick all the boxes with your team.

Location & Accessibility

The Windows meeting room in Inn On The Twenty in Jordan Village.

Location is an important consideration when planning a corporate event. How close is your venue to your office? Will your team have to commute long distances to attend your event? Moreover, does your chosen venue inspire creative thinking? Having a change of scenery can often help to get the creative juices flowing. Alternatively, choosing a venue with a variety of amenities can help your team to relax and encourage team building.

Located just an hour outside Toronto in the charming village of Jordan, Inn On The Twenty provides an inviting escape from the city, with plenty of fresh air to fuel your next big idea!

Our Windows on the Twenty boardroom is perfect for large groups, while our Wine Library is ideal for more intimate meetings intended for engaging discussions.

What Our Guests Say

“First class amenities, service as well as a great restaurant and meeting facilities. Spent two nights for a corporate retreat that does everything to help you get away from from the day to day so that you can mix great business time with pleasure next to the hiking trails and picturesque village.”

Facilities & Amenities

The Gardens at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Corporate events don’t have to be all work and no play! Choosing a venue with additional facilities and amenities creates more excitement around your event and shows your team that you value them. It also provides even more opportunities for team building when your team has shared experiences outside of a workplace setting.

Pillar and Post boasts an impressive array of amenities, with two restaurants, a poolside patio, and a 13,000-square foot full-service spa. The Gardens is one of its major attractions, with beautifully landscaped gardens and a gourmet snack bar serving delicious cocktails and other treats daily. Treat your team to luxury with a leisurely stroll through The Gardens and a five-star meal at the Cannery Restaurant!

Venue Capacity

The Grand Georgian Ballroom venue at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Depending on how large your event is, you want to be sure that your chosen venue can accommodate all your guests. Additionally, the size of the venue can set the tone for your event, whether you’re holding a small corporate retreat or a large company party.

For large corporate gatherings, the stunning Grand Georgian Ballroom at Queen’s Landing can host up to 420 guests. Its beautiful crystal chandeliers and ornate wood floors make it the perfect venue for a large office party. For more intimate corporate retreats, look to our smaller boardrooms (up to 14 guests) or mid-sized event spaces (up to 50 guests).

What Our Guests Say

Our company held our annual conference at Queens Landing this June and it was a tremendous success. From the start to the end of the conference, our Conference Services Manager was a super star to say the least. She was organized, kept us on target and updated us on any changes efficiently. When we were on-site, she was there to answer all of our questions. There was nothing too hard or difficult for her. She always greeted us with a smile and said, “Leave this with me. I got you covered.” What an amazing showcase of customer service!

Catering Options

Catering options at Prince of Wales in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Good ideas don’t happen on an empty stomach! When planning your next corporate gathering, consider how you’ll cater the event and how often your team will need refreshments. Outside caterers can be a hassle to coordinate, especially if your venue isn’t used to working with them. In-house catering is a great way to bundle your services and to eliminate the guesswork from planning your meals.

Thankfully, the catering at Prince of Wales comes directly from our award-winning Noble Restaurant, recognized as one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s premier fine dining establishments. Serving classic French cuisine with a delicious local twist, our talented culinary team will cater a menu to your needs and preferences, accommodating allergies and dietary restrictions with ease.

Venue Ambience

Outside the Erin Room at Millcroft Inn & Spa in Caledon, Ontario.

Your venue’s ambience can set the mood for your next event, whether you’re hosting a brainstorming session or celebrating your company’s latest success. A venue that allows you to escape the familiar office environment and embrace a change of scenery can help you think outside the box.

Located amidst the rolling hills of the Headwaters near Caledon, Millcroft Inn & Spa provides the ideal refuge from a hectic office, with fresh country air, lovely vintage décor, and a cozy vibe that no one can resist! Packed with character, our River Room boasts an exposed brick wall, views of the mill pond and Shaw’s Creel, and plenty of vintage charm.

What Our Guests Say

The rooms were very charming and comfortable; stayed in the main inn building. The food was very good, much better than one typically gets at a corporate meeting. Clearly the chef takes great care in preparing food that works well in a buffet format.

The grounds are absolutely lovely, and it’s not a long drive from downtown Toronto. Many of my colleagues were from out of town and it was an easy distance from Pearson.
