Earlier this week, BizBash released its list of the top 100 events in Canada for 2019. The list includes an incredible 47 events that took place in Toronto this year across several categories including tradeshows & conventions, festivals, sporting events and more. As Canada's largest and most visited destination as well as economic engine, it is not surprising to see so many of the city's top events, festivals, galas recognized here.
Toronto had a particularly strong showing in the Trade Shows & Conventions category where seven events made the list including:
1. Canadian National Exhibition
2. Canadian International Auto Show
4. Royal Agricultural Winter Fair
5. Toronto International Boat Show
7. P.D.A.C. International Trade Show, Convention and Investors' Exchange
9. National Home Show and Canada Blooms
10. Fan Expo Canada
Both Toronto Pride and Caribbean Carnival were recognized in the Festivals & Events category ranking first and third respectively. The Music Events category featured Toronto events including the Toronto Jazz Festival and Beaches International Jazz Festival, as well as the Junos, which recently announced that it will return to the city in 2021. The Canadian music awards will be celebrating their 50th anniversary at Scotiabank Arena on Sunday, March 28, 2021.
This annual events list is based on several factors, including economic impact, buzz, innovation, its prominence within the community it serves.
