Berkeley Innovation Centre
Berkeley’s Dedicated Business Meeting Space in Downtown Toronto
In Fall 2017, Berkeley Events launched an innovative “think space” called the Berkeley Innovation Centre (BIC). It is located on the second floor at the Berkeley Bicycle Club, in downtown Toronto. This space is exceptionally unique, it’s not your typical boardroom or hotel. Instead, it’s an aesthetically inviting meeting place with three different sized rooms in a historic Toronto mansion. Broad hallways enable easy people flow once your guests have entered the space via the sweeping 1891 stained glass appointed staircase.
Historic architecture is only one of the many draws of the BIC. We have transformed the space into a versatile meeting space, adorned with bold artwork, modern lighting, trendy furniture and the latest technological capabilities.
The BIC is ideal for brainstorming, ideation meetings, product strategy sessions, team building activities, and memorable training sessions. Our spaces are so tastefully decorated, inspirational and inviting that it nurtures building relationships and bringing out the best in your people.
Your next bright ideas will come to light in one or all of our cutting-edge rooms:
