The Venue

This year’s Gala will take place at Lakeshore Convention Centre, located at 806 Southdown Rd, Mississauga, ON L5J 2Y4.

Lakeshore Convention Centre is an elegant and luxurious space which provides a culinary experience like no other.  Lakeshore Convention Centre is the first banquet facility in Mississauga to practice the “Farm to table” concept.  This is the concept of purchasing locally grown food directly from the source. LakeshoreCC believes that the less time and fewer hands it takes for the food to get from the farm to the table, the fresher, more environmentally sensitive and community minded it is. All products made at LakeshoreCC contain fresh local ingredients purchased at the local farmers market and organic suppliers. All of the food prepared for the Gala is Halal.
