Our 15th Annual Convention is only a little over a month away (5 weeks, 3 days, and 20 hours to be exact)!

The deadline to register for Convention is THIS Thursday, June 6! If you are planning on coming to Convention and have not registered yet, please do so soon. For all registration and event information, please CLICK HERE to review our 2019 Convention Registration: Tutorials and Event FAQs.

We strongly recommend that you begin the process of getting a passport or any other required travel documentation if you have not done so already. CLICK HERE to find out the documentation you need to attend this year’s Convention.

If you are flying to Toronto, we would recommend that you land at either of the following airports:

Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

While the Toronto Pearson International Airport is the busiest airport in Canada, you should be able to find a flight. This airport has a variety of flights and airlines coming in from a vast number of cities in the U.S. and internationally. If you decide to fly into YYZ, there are various ways you can get from the airport to the hotel, including the UP Express Train (stops at Union Station), Toronto Airport Limo service (offers luxury town cars and large SUVs for multiple passengers), and a few other options that you can plan out.

Toronto Island Airport (YTZ)

Also known as Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Toronto Island Airport is considered to be a regional airport and thus can be limited on flights. It is conveniently located just offshore from Downtown Toronto, just 2 km away from the Westin Harbour Castle. While Porter Airlines is the only airline that flies into this airport, you will find that they have daily departures to most cities nearby. If you decide to fly into YTZ, there are various ways you can get from the airport to the hotel, including a free shuttle bus (takes you to Union Station) or a ride-share provider (takes 10-15 minutes to get to hotel).  

As a side note, to explore public transportation within the city, we recommend that you check out the website for Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).

As a reminder, Convention begins on Sunday, July 14. Registration check-in for attendees will begin on Sunday at 12:00 p.m ET. There will be a welcome cocktail party beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET. Both Monday and Tuesday are full days, beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET each day with breakfast provided beforehand. On Monday night, there will be an Awards dinner event for all attendees, and on Tuesday, the last session will end by 5:00 p.m. ET. No need to rush out the door, the Expo hall will be open until 6:00 p.m. ET.
