About Toronto

Welcome to Canada’s largest and most diverse urban centre
With over 2.7 million people, Toronto is Canada’s largest and most diverse urban center and one of the world’s most dynamic business capitals. The city, located on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario, is the hub of Canada’s commercial, financial, industrial and cultural life. Toronto’s rich history, heritage and culture is reflected in its 140 distinct and vibrant neighbourhoods.

From away?
There’s lots to do in Toronto. You can start at seetorontonow.comblogto.com and Toronto.com, or visit Ticketmaster. You can also check out NowEye Weekly and Toronto Life to find out what else is going on while you’re here, or just leave a comment on the blog and information will magically find its way to you. If you’re looking for a place to stay, Expedia has info on some great hotels close to downtown.

About the Climate: Situated on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is one of the southernmost cities in Canada. In fact, its latitude is very close to that of northern California. As a result, Toronto has a surprisingly moderate climate – with the warmest springs and summers in Canada.

Insider Advice

In advance of meshmarketing

  1. Register in advance. History has shown we sell out at mesh events. We anticipate the same is true this year.
  2. Plan to stay for socials. The networking is a big part of the experience. We will be announcing these details shortly. Best bet is to save the dates for the evenings of Nov 6. We’ll have great opportunities to mesh, network and socialize.
  3. Keep visiting the website. We’ll be adding info right up to the event. Follow @meshcon on twitter or the stream at #meshcon.  Subscribe to our RSS feed and get email updates via Feedblitz  or feedburner to stay up-to-date. You can also add yourself to our Newsletter list so that you’ll get the latest and greatest on mesh in general as well as meshmarketing and mesh conference.

During meshmarketing

  1. Be sure to pack your laptop, camera, audio recorder and/or camcorder. We’ll have lots of Wi-Fi at the conference. Don’t forget your power adapters because we’ll have charging stations. You can record, photograph and film to your heart’s content. But it’s up to you to get the permission of anyone you you want to photograph, record or film. Unfortunately, everything that happens in Toronto does not stay in Toronto.
  2. Bring your business cards and prepare to meet lots of fantastic people. This event offers lots of great content in the session rooms. However, outside the session rooms, you can connect with really talented folks…you’ll share ideas…and you’ll get inspired.
  3. Be prepared to talk. This event is as much about your thoughts and ideas as it is about what is said from the stage. We really want to hear from you.

If we’ve missed something that you need to know or think that we should add, contact us at info [at] meshconference [dot] com. On Twitter, we’re @meshcon.
