The conference venue is on the west side
of downtown. Metro Hall has a direct underground connection
to the St. Andrew (King St. West) Subway Station on the
Yonge-University subway line.
The venue is several blocks south of the University of
Toronto Campus (a short walk or a shorter subway ride from
the St. George or Museum or College Street subway stations).
Holiday Inn On King
new Holiday Inn is across the street from the
conference venue. A block of rooms will be held
until April 1, 2004 at the special rate of $159.CAD
(plus 15% tax) for a single or a double.
The block of rooms being held is for the evenings
of June 23 to June 27. The same special room
rate is available for the three days before
and after these dates, for those who will stay
longer. However, these extra days are subject
to room availability (rather than guaranteed
until April 1).
After April 1, which
is also the cut-off date for obtaining the
reduced conference rate,
the special room rate of $159 (plus 15% tax)
will still be available – but subject
to room availability. Please book early. Book
