CTV is a proud partner of the Sony Centre, which has become the home of CTV's annual Upfront presentation for the past several years. CTV works closely with the management team, including the back-of-house and front-of house staff, on every detail of our Upfront presentation - from the initial concepts to the final execution. The service level and expertise of the Sony Centre staff allow us to raise the bar for our event every single year.

Shane Feldman, Founder & Executive Director, Count Me In

With over 130 teenagers working together to plan and execute Count Me In Toronto, the unique program has become the largest youth-run event in the world. Without the support of The Sony Centre, our achievements this year would not have been possible. The theatre staff were superb in bringing our event to fruition. From the FOH team to the backstage crew, all staff were respectful, professional, enjoyable to work with, and eager to help make our event the best it could possibly be. After this amazing experience, we are looking forward to building more meaningful events at The Sony Centre for years to come. From all of us here at Count Me In, THANK YOU for believing in and supporting our vision.

Matt Levitan, Director of Marketing/Public Relations, PlayStation Canada

The new and improved Sony Centre for the Performing Arts proved to be the perfect venue for our annual PlayStation Canada holiday PR event. The renovation was amazing with enough space and staff to accommodate us. Utilizing the wall of TVs in the front entrance made for the perfect first impression to the thousands of media and consumers we hosted for the day.

Stephen Lau, President, Mercantile Exchange Corporation

A BIG Thank You to you and the rest of your staff at the Sony Centre for making our Christmas Party a huge success. Our staff at MEC cannot stop talking about how wonderful the party was. In fact, all of us agreed hands down that was the best Christmas Party MEC ever had in its 19 year history! The food was amazing, your staff were very friendly and helpful, and the show was fantastic. My only problem is: how can I ever top this party next year? Thanks again to everyone at the Sony Centre.

Mike French, SVP CFO Wholesale Banking, TD Securities

The feedback from our group of 1,000 attendees was universally positive. The theatre provides great sightliness, in a quiet and comfortable environment to keep the audience engaged for long presentations. The service made meals, breaks and cocktails run smoothly for all participants. The value of having a private self contained venue was huge for our group. An excellent experience right from the organization of the event all the way through to execution.

Susan Johnston, Director, Events & Operations, Heller Productions Inc.

I wanted to reach out to thank you all once more for a great event yesterday - it was fabulous! The team rocked! The client has had nothing but great things to say - the bar has officially been raised!

Angela McLean, Events Manager, NERA Economic Consulting

The Sony Centre provided their professional advice and expertise that proved instrumental to the success of our meeting.

Kristin Kooistra, Meeting Planner, Royal Bank of Canada

Thank you to the Sony Centre for making our client event a huge success! Everything ran smoothly, from the early planning stages, through to the on-site coordination. The management team and staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and the custom menu the Chef created was amazing! I look forward to our next event at the Sony Centre!
