Venue Options In Toronto
Some venue options in Toronto suitable for a soccer tournament after party includes The Warehouse Venue, the Rhema Events Center, the Evergreen Brick Works, the Rec Room, and the Ballroom Bowl. There is also a large, three-floor property available on This Open Space. The listed venues are more than 10,000 square feet in size and are capable of accommodating 600 to 750 people. Below we have presented an outline of our research strategy, along with the findings from our research.
We began our research by examining relevant databases to identify large venues in the Toronto area and were able to locate a few that are 10,000 square feet and have a capacity for at least 750 people. We then reviewed their websites and chose those maintaining a warehouse touch. Additionally, we concentrated on those that permit the rental of the entire venue. Afterward, we searched through pop up rental pages, including This Open Space, The Store Front, Breather, and Pop Up Go, to find additional venues. However, we could only find one open space with more than 10,000 square feet of space, and its capacity was not presented. We decided to include the property in this report.
Next, we checked industrial rental real estate sites like Colliers and LoopNet, but the listings we came across were not available to rent for less than a month. We also searched through classified websites such as Kijiji to locate commercial rentals. This research did not produce the results we were seeking as the properties were not large enough. We then examined wedding venue blogs and sites such as blogTO and Artscape Venues, along with promoter sites like Cvent and Magen Boys. We also reviewed online rating websites such as Yelp to locate well-known properties, but we could not identify any additional warehouse venues that were suitable.
Our final strategy was to review Toronto entertainment sites such as Toronto Ed for current events and shows. Still, we could not locate any additional venues that meet the specified criteria. Finally, we explored travel sites like Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor for activity and event recommendations, which could have led us to other listings. Nevertheless, we were unable to find an event/activity that was scheduled at a venue not already included in this report. Therefore, we concluded that there are six appropriate venue options in Toronto that can be utilized for a soccer tournament after party.
