The Metro Toronto Convention Centre (LEFT: South Building, Exhibit Hall E; 255 Front St. W) in downtown Toronto, Canada, will host the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS). Located near the waterfront, the centre is close to attractions (TIFF Bell Lightbox, the CN Tower, Harbourfront Centre), shopping (St. Lawrence Market, Eaton Centre, Kensington Market) and numerous hotels.

Union_Station_Lightbox_Desktop (1)Getting There From the Airport

Due to the expected high volume of traffic, we recommend taking the UP Express. The UP Express connects Toronto Pearson International Airport to Union Station in just 25 minutes. UP Express trains depart every 15 minutes between 5:30 a.m. and 1 a.m., seven days a week.

Union Station is conveniently located next to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, as well as downtown hotels, tourist attractions, meeting and convention facilities and business centers. It’s just steps away from GO Transit, the TTC and VIA Rail.
