Re: Re: Citywest : Mansfield’s giant heap of crap
conferences are *big* business. Toronto used to get very big money from attracting medical conferences and the like which meant thousands of yanks with US Dollars to spend. SARS has put a huge hole in that business and believe me the city is feeling it. With the new European countries, EU wide conferences are going to have a LOT of punters. Citywest is a stupid place to put it as it is the other side of the city from the airport, through which a lot of the target market will come. Metro Toronto Convention Centre is right downtown – somewhere in the Spencer Dock-O’Connell Street area, near the Metro, Luas, Interconnector, etc. is where any NCC worthy of the name should be located.
