Know Before You Go
At all meetings, receptions, activities, and interaction with other AGA members and guests during the conference, attendees are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner and be responsible for personal behavior respectful of others and the esteem and reputation of the Association and our great industry. Upon completion of your registration, you agreed to abide by the AGA's Statement on Personal Conduct.
The Toronto Marriott City Centre is a 20-30 minute drive from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). There is the UP Express train that runs every 15 minutes to and from the airport to Union Station with a short walk to the hotel. There is plenty of access to taxis, Ubers or Lyfts as well. The AGA strongly discourages renting a car.
Cities across Canada as well as Boston, Chicago, DC and Newark offer direct flights into Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on Porter Airlines. You can take the ferry to the mainland or use the 853-foot pedestrian tunnel connecting the mainland and terminal. It is then a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk to the Toronto Marriott City Centre.
