Social Events

Refreshments and lunches will be provided for conference attendees on the three days of the main conference. For those attending workshops before and/or after the main conference, workshop registration will include lunches and refreshments on the day of your workshop.

Opening Night Reception

Our opening reception will be held on Tuesday 15th May, at the end of the first day of the main conference. The opening reception will be held on the patio in the spectacular quadrangle of Hart House, the main conference venue.

Conference Banquet

The ICT4S 2018 conference banquet will be held on Wednesday 16th May at the Second City Mainstage Theatre, in downtown Toronto, at 51 Mercer Street. The theatre is a 10-15 minute walk or an easy streetcar ride from the conference venue.

Second City is renowned as one of the top international venues for improv comedy, and has become the training ground for many famous comedians. If you’re not familiar with Improv, wikipedia has a great primer: We’ll have exclusive use of the Second City Mainstage theatre for the evening, which consists of cabaret style seating (small tables and chairs) on two levels, and we’ll have a buffet style dinner, which will be entirely vegan. For the meat eaters, don’t worry: the food will be so amazing you won’t miss your meat!

After dinner, we’ll be treated to an exclusive improv comedy show featuring Toronto’s finest comedy actors, with plenty of opportunity for audience participation. For those of you who have never been to a Canadian-style improv show before, you’re in for a treat!
