St. Andrew's Club And Conference Centre Celebrates 25 Years St. Andrew's Club and Conference Centre contributes twenty- five years of success to guiding principles and forward- thinking innovations. Toronto, ON (I- Newswire) October 04, 2012 - Twenty- five years ago this October, St. Andrew's Club opened their purpose built conference centre in downtown Toronto. From the beginning, the conference centre has expanded many times with new meeting rooms and services. Over 40,000 people now attend meetings, conferences and receptions annually in the venue located in prime space of the Sun Life Tower at University and King in the heart of downtown Toronto. "I don't know how it all came together back then. There was no internet, let alone SEO. We didn't have a fax machine for the first few years. Smoking in the workplace was becoming an issue, but we banned smoking in the meeting rooms which some people had difficulty with", reflects Stephen Hodd, founder of St. Andrew's Club and Conference Centre. St. Andrew's Club was created and designed by founder Stephen Hodd when he noticed a need for quality meeting space downtown. Stephen and the rest of the staff at the conference centre will celebrate this milestone with a focus on the core principles that make St. Andrew's Club such a success, as well as the forward- thinking innovations that have allowed them to continue to lead in quality of space and customer satisfaction. Among many accomplishments and innovations are: the first downtown centre dedicated solely for corporate meetings and executive development, a commitment to have every room filled with natural light and appealing views of the city to keep attendees fresh and energetic throughout the day, ergonomic chairs and hard surfaced tables to make guests comfortable, a small number of meeting rooms with a shared common lounge with unlimited beverage and snack services throughout the day, complimentary wireless throughout the venue, a "Peace of Mind" package that offers on- site technical support, webcasting services, and a new "Plug n' Present" package with audio- visual equipment optimized for sight and sound in every room. "We are proud that we have consistently provided comfortable and productive meeting space for our clients and attendees and we are delighted with the repeat and referral business we enjoy from our many loyal clients" says Stephen Hodd, "While many things have changed over the years, our touchstones remain- convenient location, superior rooms and exceptional service." With these core values and a positive outlook on future innovations, St. Andrew's Club and Conference Centre is sure to enjoy another twenty- five years and more of success.
