Welcome to Toronto!

A beacon for multiculturalism, Toronto is home to incredible history, festivals, food and of course, an iconic skyline view. As the largest city in Canada and the fourth largest city in North America, Toronto is also the home to our fourth annual North American conference, themed excellence.

Toronto is at its peak of international excellence and it is not just because of Drake, Justin Bieber and its 2019 NBA championship team, the Toronto Raptors. This city also hosts one of the largest publically attended film festivals in the world with the Toronto International Film Festival, Toronto’s Caribana, which brings in over two million people annually and the Canadian National Exhibition, which is the nation’s largest annual fair taking place on the waterfront. All of these entertaining events are in addition to the cities beautiful history, which includes the Distillery District, an area filled with Victorian warehouses repurposed into boutiques, bars, galleries and eateries, Toronto’s only castle, Casa Loma, constructed by a wealthy financier in 1914 and the infamous CN Tower where you can actually Edge Walk along the perimeter.

This is why Toronto is the perfect home for CARSTAR Excellence 2020. Hosted at the Westin Harbour Castle, you will enjoy scenic waterfront views as we pack in three days of education, collaboration and celebration. The most amount of CARSTAR facilities in any North American territory is also in the Greater Toronto Area, with over 40 locations.

As the industries leading premier collision repair provider, we know that excellence is not just a level of service, but an attitude. This is why it is so important for us all to come together and learn from one another, to fuel our collective growth for the future. We also have an exciting surprise on our opening night and we know you will not want to miss this one!

Thank you all for your continued commitment to our CARSTAR family and we look forward to seeing you all in “the six” this July.
