Parking & Maps

The Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) has 1,200 indoor parking spaces available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We recommend using the South Building parking lot, located on Lower Simcoe St. south of Bremner Blvd. Discount Parking Passes are available for purchase from MTCC for patrons requiring parking two consecutive days or more.

There are an additional 10,000 spaces within a one-kilometre distance operated by various parking companies. MTCC has two buildings: the North and South Buildings. Discovery 12 will be held in the South Building, 222 Bremner Boulevard, Toronto, ON.
