EGLX lives at The International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. This enormous venue is designed specifically to host large-scale events and shows. It’s also conveniently located next door to both Toronto’s Pearson Airport and numerous hotels (check below for our attendee-only hotel room deals!).
This year we’re taking over Hall 6, which spans an amazing 80,000 square feet (more than double the floor space of our last event, EGL). Hall 6 also features centrally located bathrooms, ATM and vending machines by the front door, and tons of food options inside.
The 52D Lawrence West towards McNaughton starts at Lawrence Station on the Yonge Line 1, and stops right outside The International Centre. Extra fare required west of the airport.

If you are traveling to EGLX from outside of Canada, please note that you must have a passport. Passports generally take between 1-4 weeks to arrive, so make sure not to procrastinate!
You can apply for a passport at your local post office. In the United States, passports cost $135 USD for those 16+ (and $110 USD to renew) or $105 USD for those under 16.
One alternative for U.S. attendees is an enhanced driver’s license. This is cheaper than a passport and quicker to obtain – it’s an easier alternative to a passport for those mainly traveling between the U.S. and Canada.

Please note that as of June 1, 2009, visitors to Canada from the U.S. will be required to show:
1) If you are crossing the border by land or sea: a valid U.S. passport, a U.S. passport card, OR an enhanced driver’s license.
2) If you are flying: a valid U.S. passport ONLY.
