Pearson Convention Centre named top convention facility by Brampton Guardian

We recently spoke to the Brampton Guardian and they had these nice words to say about us.

‘It’s easy to understand why Pearson Convention Centre won the Top Performers Award for best Banquet Facilities – again. The timelessly elegant 64,000 sq. ft. banquet facility has earned the top award several years running.

Conveniently located near Toronto’s Pearson International Airport with easy access to highways 427, 407 and 410, Pearson Convention Centre is palatial in size and decor, and can host weddings and corporate events for up to 2,000 people. Renowned for its exceptional food, created by executive chef Emilio Cueto and his team, and stellar service, added perks include the convenience of an onsite event planner, free guest parking and the Hilton Garden Inn is located right on the property.

 “It is very gratifying that people see us in that light, and we will continue to try to do our very best to delight our customers by offering the best service, extraordinary food and exceptional facilities,” says Nishan Minhas, president of Pearson Convention Centre.  “We opened in 2003, and after 10 years in business, we underwent a major renovation to upgrade and modernize our facilities. We have state-of-the-art audio visual equipment including two screens per ballroom, speakers and projectors built into the ceiling of each of our six ballrooms.”

Nishan has noticed a few predominant trends in the wedding industry: “While some weddings are being downsized to an average of 300 guests, East Indian weddings are getting bigger, averaging around 1,000 people. We work with specialty caterers to bring in East and West Indian food. We are also seeing an increase in the demand for gluten free and vegan meals as people are eating healthier or have certain dietary needs.”
