TORONTO, April 16, 2015 /CNW/ - The National Magazine Awards Foundation (NMAF) announced today that this year's 38th annual National Magazine Awards gala will be held on Friday, June 5, at a new venue—the stylish Arcadian Court in downtown Toronto.
Originally opened in 1929 and long cherished as one of Toronto's most dazzling and dynamic event spaces, the Arcadian Court is managed by Oliver & Bonacini Events & Catering, which will cater this year's gala, and sits in the heart of the city's thriving Queen & Bay bustle. Featuring more than 8000 square feet of contemporary gala space, the Arcadian Court was recently named Best Ballroom in Canada at the Bizbash Event Style Awards.
"We are thrilled to welcome the Canadian magazine industry to this exquisite new venue for the National Magazine Awards," said Joyce Byrne, president of the NMAF. "Our annual gala attracts more than 500 of Canada's best magazine publishers, editors, artists, journalists, marketing and sales teams, and other members of our industry from across the country. We look forward to celebrating with you this year at the Arcadian Court."
