Local Info

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the OURA 2017 Conference is steps away from world-class theatres, shopping and major attractions. Looking for some additional options for your free time? Here are a few suggestions:

Dining, Theatre and More
Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world with a multitude of cultures and cuisines within a short walk or transit ride from the Conference hotel. Explore Chinatown, Greektown, Little India or Kensington Market and try something new!

Check out the latest offerings for February 2017 in Toronto’s exciting Theatre district at www.mirvish.com.

The Toronto Raptors are also in town the week of February 15th.

Hit the Ice
The Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel is steps away from Nathan Phillips Square, home to Toronto City Hall and an outdoor ice rink in the winter. It’s a great spot to take in the downtown sights (bring your own skates or skate rentals are available).

Put Your Best Foot Forward
Looking for something a little quirky? The Bata Shoe Museum houses the world’s largest collection of shoes, including Elvis Presley’s blue patent loafers, French chestnut crushing boots and an entire exhibition devoted to the history of sneaker culture.

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) are home to world class collections and are just a short transit ride or walk away.
