Events, Training & Conference Meeting Rooms
The Meeting Rooms at The Rostie Group are all named after great Oceans and Lakes.
You and your guests are pampered and offered personalized service from attentive staff in modern, beautifully designed accommodations.
Each of our Rooms has its own unique window views of Toronto’s thriving South Core.
What Our Rooms can Offer You
We believe that charging our clients for every addition is no way to run a business. And something as simple and ubiquitous as Wi-Fi should not cost you extra.
In our fully connected world, it is expected that for your workshops and training events your attendees come prepared with laptops and personal devices and are ready to take notes and share information. To not allow your attendees to do so effectively hampers their ability to learn and take in information.
Something as simple as free Wi-Fi can make be the difference between a good conference, and a great one.
Full Tech Support
It would be nice if our computers and laptops would always function well when it’s time to make a presentation. But no matter how much you prepare and test your equipment before your event, sometimes it just fails when it’s needed most.
The Rostie Group offers full tech support for you to get your presentation going in all of our meeting and event rooms. From something as simple as being unable to reliably connect to our Wi-FI, to a failure to display content on our large televisions, we’ll help you make sure that your presentation runs its course trouble free.
Both our smaller and larger spaces benefit from being full video equipped. Connect to your favourite video platform, and enjoy state-of-the-art cameras and audio that track the speaker. Our smaller meeting spaces are excellent huddle or interview rooms.
Our larger spaces have full Polycom enterprise level equipment which is ready and able to connect to other polycom systems, or any IP based video platform.
Our state-of-the-art Polycom videoconferencing equipment offers you all the benefits of a traditional business meeting, while saving you money on travel expenses and meeting planning costs.
Connect with multiple clients or associates around the world, in mere seconds, without having to worry about booking a single airplane flight. Videoconferencing technology gives your company a competitive edge by instantly allowing for seamless face-to-face communication with off-site contacts.
Videoconference rooms are conveniently located throughout The Rostie Group facilities. Equipment can also be purchased and installed according to your individual specifications.
Videoconferencing is a convenient and effective meeting option which can save your organization both time and money. This technology has many advantages over traditional business meetings…
Videoconferencing Lowers Travel Expenses
Share information with colleagues around the world in mere seconds without unnecessary travel costs, long layovers, pricey courier services, etc.
Videoconference and Conduct Worry-free Recruiting
Videoconferencing enables you to pre-screen, interview and privately interact with potential employees, providing personal contact in the assessment process. Find the best candidate for the job no matter where they may be located.
Videoconference and Gain a Competitive “Edge”
Videoconferencing gives you the instant “edge” in an increasingly globalized business world. Get a variety of diverse perspectives from off-site associates with limited planning or notice.
Videoconference to Stay “in the loop”
Whether working from the office, connecting from home, or conducting business off-site, videoconferencing allows you to effortlessly manage your business priorities, while remaining an integral part of the decision making process.
Videoconferencing Reduces your Company’s Carbon Footprint
Bring your groups together in several key locations, rather than relying on high-emission transport to get everyone into the same room.
Our clients utilize videoconferencing technology for an array of social, corporate and educational purposes, including:
• Business Meetings
• Job Interviews
• Training Sessions
• Educational Lectures
Flexible Furnishings with Customizable Layouts
Not every workshop should be set in a classroom, nor every conference need be a speaker in front of an audience of tightly packed chairs.
Your events have special requirements; whether it’s due to the number of attendees, or perhaps they need tables to work on. Perhaps they have additional requirements or mobility issues. Or something as simple as wanting to encourage collaboration by setting up small groups together.
At The Rostie Group, we are flexible with our layouts, and can make sure that you have the best set up for your own event. We can have our group sit around a large boardroom table, or a “U” shape that supports cross talk and collaboration.
We’ll make sure that your workshop fits you and your attendees, rather than trying to fit you into our space.
Built-in Presentation Equipment
All of our training rooms come complete with full presentation equipment. 80” TVs that allow you to display your presentation in full HD, and can be easily seen by everyone in the room. No one will miss a detail of your presentation. The full screen of these TVs are much more modern and powerful, and give a crisper and more full rich image than any projector could, allowing all the details of your images and videos to be seen by your attendees. Additionally, some rooms allow for extra TVs to be rolled in, up until 4 in configuration.
With speakers available, there is no need to attempt to strain your voice to speak, or try to make sure that your attendees can hear audio coming out from a weak laptop speaker.
The best part is that all this equipment, including set up and tech support to make sure it’s all running and compatible with your equipment comes at no additional charge.
It would make little sense to charge you for a training room, and then charge you again to use the equipment in that room. This way we can make sure that your training session is the best you’ve had, and that you’ll be more than eager to return to The Rostie Group the next time you need a training room.
At The Rostie Group, we understand that there may be concerns with your organization when it comes to external meetings. Even a whisper of information landing on the wrong ears can be disastrous. Our larger meeting rooms are all sound proofed, to keep any external noises out of your meeting, avoiding distractions and loud noises.
And more importantly, so that information is kept in, and not shared with anyone outside of that room. We’re proud to have our guests relax in our spacious meeting rooms, knowing that they may freely speak of information all while enjoying the space they are in.
All of our rooms have either fixed, or portable White Boards available for use. These white boards and the accompanying dry erase markers are also available at no extra charge. Just like the room equipment, we feel that charging extra for actually using the space you’ve rented doesn’t make sense.
Especially since our white boards are cleaned after each meeting for confidentiality reasons, and can then be re-used.
Sometimes White Boards are not enough to contain all of the information you need, and you’re unable to erase and continue writing. For those exact reasons, when you rent a meeting room with The Rostie Group, we also have flipcharts available for your use.
All of our rooms come equipped with two telephones: A Polycom personal use telephone and a conference phone capable of outputting audio to fill the entire room. At anytime during the meeting you can use our telephones to make calls out to other attendees or supervisors, and can have outside parties dial in to our rooms, they all have private numbers that are available to use.
If you need to dial in to a conference, just dial the number, it’s that easy! Additionally, if you’re calling a local number, you can use the phone for your entire meeting for no additional cost. The only time we charge is if you need to dial out long distance. Most phone conferencing services have local numbers available so rest easy knowing that you can have your phone conference with no worries about additional charges or being cut off for over usage of minutes.
Unique Catering Options
Our extensive catering menu can satisfy any preferences or lifestyles your attendees might have. Full of delicious sandwiches and wraps, indulgent treats like chocolate chip cookies and ice cream, and healthy options like cranberry and country greens salads. We have breakfast options, full hot lunches, and even more exotic treatments like charcuterie and cheese boards, as well as hummus and pitas.
And of course, we can’t forget the Coffee.
All of the menu items here at The Rostie Group are delicious and will help you and your attendees feel good while they attend your event.
Amazing large windows allow for all natural light to come into all of our meeting rooms.

Meeting Room Layouts
Not only does the Rostie Group offer a variety of rooms to host any size of attendees, but we also offer the ability to customize the room to your own preference:
Below is our guide to helping you choose a room and the best layout to maximise your meeting objectives:
The presenter stands at the front of the room either at a podium or beside a projection screen facing rows of tables with 2-4 chairs per section. Depending on the size of the audience the sections can either by divided by one aisle running down the centre or two running down either side. This arrangement works best in an informational setting with someone clearly dictating the direction of the class, seminar, or conference.

Muskoka: 900 Sq. feet, up to 30 people in Classroom layout.
Pacific: 700 Sq. feet, up to 20 people in Classroom layout.
The audience is seated in rows of chairs divided into sections facing towards a presenter at the front. This arrangement works best for shorter presentations or ones that involve minimal note taking as desks are not provided. This format maximizes the amount of meeting room space available by diminishing the amount of required furniture.

Muskoka: 900 Sq. feet, up to 65 people in Lecture/Theater layout.
Pacific: 700 Sq. feet, up to 50 people in Lecture/Theater layout.
Chairs line the sides of tables set lengthwise throughout a room in a style that resembles a cafeteria or library setting. By running tables the length of the room as opposed to horizontally, floor space is utilized efficiently. This format works well for study sessions, individual or group work as well as seminars that do not have long speeches.
