T3 Expo is always on the road! Our new blog series will follow our team around the country as they travel from show to show and highlight some of their favorite things to do in each city.
First up on our list is the Canadian City of Toronto. Toronto, the capital city of Ontario, and is home to 2.8 million people making it the fourth most populated city in North America and the largest city in Canada. Between its population and large public transit system it is no wonder why Toronto is a popular place to hold an event. As our team gears up to head to Toronto for the next AWS Summit Event, we wanted to share with you a few of our favorite places and activities in the city.
1) The CN Tower.
