Located adjacent to the city landmark of Yonge and Dundas Square and directly north of the city’s Financial District, Chestnut Conference Centre is in the heart of the downtown core. The venue is ideally located: it is only a 5-minute walk from the St Patrick subway station, 10-minute walk from the Eaton Centre and a 10-minute walk from Toronto’s Financial District.

Recommended Hotels

Since ICNP 2017 will be held at a conference centre, we do not have the notion of a "conference hotel." In early September, we have surveyed hotels in Downtown Toronto, and have the following recommendations. Pricing and availability are subject to changes.

Pricing will be more affordable if you venture further away from downtown. As long as you stay on the subway line, you can usually get to the conference centre within 20-30 minutes.
