“We had our wedding reception on Aug 21 2015 and it was nothing short of amazing. Varnan and the staff at SCC provided us with outstanding service and accommodated all of our needs. Everything from the food to the ambiance to the attention to detail before and on the day of the event was exceptional. Big thanks to SCC for making our day an extra-special one!!!”

Michael & Roshni, Wedding Reception

“My sister got married late July of this year. I have to say both my sister and my brother in law had the best night of their lives. Shahid is an amazing and wonderful person. He went beyond and above expectation. He helped my family and our guest so much. From the food, the service, the sweet table, the bar. Everything was beyond what anyone can imagine. Our family can’t thank shahid enough for all his hard work. We didn’t even need a wedding planner, he did everything. I recommend anyone who has a party in mind to book this venue. Shahid will help you guys a lot. Trust me when I say this, Because whatever he said was exactly the way it happened. Thank you shahid.”

Sara K., Wedding

“A long overdue review, but one that is well-deserved! My wife and I had our wedding reception at SCC in June of this year, and had Vern’s help from the beginning. After our first meeting with him, we could tell he was experienced and knew exactly what was needed each step of the way. Ensuring that no small detail was left behind Vern kept in constant contact with us, reassuring us of any decisions and changes made. To note, my wife and I adamantly wanted to serve dinner early and have as much time on the dance floor as possible. Though he admitted this was rare, he ensured that it would happen. We still remember that moment at 8:30 pm, when the emcee stated that the buffet was now open. Despite having it written in our itinerary, we were still shocked that everything went so smoothly. Moreover, and just like others have said, the food was amazing.
He went above and beyond to give us a unique experience with a never before done Thai station (my wife his half Thai), which everyone loved and raved about. We also received several compliments about the cocktail hour – from the appetizers, bar service, and set-up, everything about it exceeded our expectations.
Finally, Vern and Sanjevan were present the entire night, and made sure everything went smoothly – they worked so well with our wedding planner that we didn`t hear a word from them that night, which we took to be a very good sign! All in all, the event came together better than we could have ever imagined, and we look forward to having and attending future events at SCC.”

“My brother and sister in law had their wedding reception at Scarborough Convention Centre this past weekend and it was truly amazing. The whole SCC team was great but our main point of contact was Vern who was fantastic! He is an extremely professional individual who was able to attend to all of our family’s requests easily. Thank you to the full team!”

Melody & Rahim, Wedding

“My cousins wedding took place in August 2015, where I helped plan their wedding. They chose Scarborough Convention Centre for the venue and food;it was a great choice. They decided to have table service and on the wedding day, the servers and management handled the table service beautifully. They were patient and made sure everyone received a meal and was happy. The food itself was great and delicious. Even for a table service menu, there was so much food available for the guests. The venue was decorated beautiful and elegantly, everything was set up on time and prepared well. The bride (Regina) and groom (Newton) was extremely happy.
I would definitely recommend this venue for weddings and any major events for the price is decent but the expectation of the venue was beyond what we anticipated. So thank you to the servers, management (Varnan) and those that assisted with my cousins wedding to make it look extra beautiful.”

Vinissa E., Wedding

“We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for making our wedding reception so spectacular and memorable .The food and service at both events was excellent and the staff was friendly. You did such a great job getting the silver chairs and burgundy napkins. Everyone at our events enjoyed the food, desserts and service at the bar. We cannot thank you enough for your time, advice and help with our planning and being available to answer questions. Please extend our thank you to the audio visual technicians for their help with the projectors, pin spots and screens, as well as Pooma for her assistance and coordination. It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for adding to the wonderful memories of our wedding and helping to make it a huge success.”

Natalie & Raj, Wedding Reception

“My husband and I recently got married at SCC on June 27 2015. With any wedding preparation comes stress and anxiety. However working alongside with Vern at SCC, he was able to provide us with exceptional service leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding was a dream come true as our guest had an amazing time! All of our guest raved about the food and the service from the staff at SCC. We would like to thank Vern and the staff for providing us an amazing wedding reception.”

Anjum, Fitzroy & the Bheda Family, Wedding

“My husband and I got married a couple weekends ago and both our wedding and reception were held at Scarborough Convention Center on May 9th and 10th, 2015. I cannot begin to explain how thrilled with how the two events turned out. I began planning my wedding a little over a year ago, and most of my planning had taken place while I was out of the country. Vern was my Event Coordinator at SCC and he was beyond fantastic. He was very accommodating and was able to capture all my ideas perfectly. He was aware I was out of the country until a couple weeks before the wedding so most of our communication was over emails and text messages and yet Vern was able to execute my ideas well beyond even my vision. Vern and his staff members were all very professional and able to attend to all the needs of our family and friends during the two events. All our guests left both events raving about the service and food. Many of them had told us repeatedly that our events were one of the best ones they have all attended, and we definitely owe all the compliments to Vern and his wonderful team. I remember my father and father-in-law asking for special requests for the meals and Vern was able to get the Chef in communication with them instantly to meet all their requests. The meals at both events were wonderful, it, like everything else during the two events went well beyond our expectations. As the bride I can honestly say, having Vern always available and reminding me to do things made this entire wedding planning experience pleasant and definitely enjoyable with minimal to no stress. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience to the entire team at SCC, and I will definitely recommend this venue to all future couples. I would also highly recommend all couples ask for Vern as their event coordinator to make the planning a lot smoother and pleasant.”

Shanthiya S., Wedding & Reception

We are blessed with such wonderful family and friends. Not a day goes by that we do not appreciate & thank god for the love we shared all of you on july 19th & 20th, 2013.”

Steven & Amelia Jagat, Wedding

“I am so happy that we chose to go with SCC for our wedding on May 2, 2015. It was the absolute best decision we made. The Venue speaks for itself-absolutely gorgeous. However, from day one what stood out to us was the experience we had with Sanjevan and Vern. They provided us exceptional service, catered to all our needs and ensured it was going to be a wonderful time. Any time we had a question or concern they were very quick and professional to help us out. The night of the wedding everything was AMAZING. Vern and Sanjevan were on the floor the entire night making sure everything was good smoothly. Anytime anyone needed anything they were there. Thank you both so much for everything and creating the wedding of my dreams. I whole heartily recommend SCC to anyone wishing to book an event with these wonderful individuals.”

Rebecca R., Wedding

“My brother’s wedding was held at Scarborough Convention Centre on April 5, 2015. I was very thrilled by the service that was provided by SCC. The wedding was planned at a grand scale and we spent a lot time planning the event. Being a perfectionist, I was very demanding at many occasions but our wedding coordinator Vern was able to grasp all the requests and was able to deliver it with minimal follow up. Not only was he prompt but was very competent on delivering everything swiftly as he appear to have smooth communication with all the staff. I also spotted the hall owner Jegan at many occasions, including the night prior to the wedding monitoring his staff with the wedding prep. All the food was amazing. Our guests told us over and over that this was one of the best weddings they’ve been to yet in GTA and we owe the compliments to the SCC staff, Vern and Jegan for making this possible. At many occasions, I knew Vern went above and beyond their capacity, only to make the wedding as grand as it was. Jegan has also arranged for 4 different rice meals as complimentary at the request of my dad. I also remember dropping two CDs on the morning of the wedding and took 2 seconds to explain what need to be done with it to one of the staffs and literally running out of the hall so I can be at the bride’s house. I was surprised that even with the poor instructions, they were able to deliver the request on the spot without any problem. The DJ was very good and also the lady who did the table setup had a very vibrant positive attitude. No matter how demanding I was, she was very pleasant and always had the “I can do” attitude. The stress was reduced as Vern directed us from A to Z on what need to be done from the point we walked into the hall. It was such as pleasant experience and for once we the close family members were able to enjoy the wedding which usually does not happen in weddings. Thank you for our wonderful wedding weekend. This has been one of the most special days of our lives. I will definitely recommend SCC. Ask for Vern and he will take care of you.”

Sujany S., Wedding

“Due to an unexpected turn of events, my husband and I lost our venue for our Hindu wedding ceremony….the week of the intended event! My sister had had her wedding ceremony at the Scarborough Convention Centre a few years prior and, remembering how nice it was, we immediately contacted them. Much to our delight, the beautiful space was available. And then the event team went above and beyond all of our expectations. They created a beautiful space with delicious food for our ceremony and lunch reception, all within a few days’ notice. They were a pleasure to work with, they took care of absolutely EVERYTHING, and our guests raved about how lovely everything was. The facilities are beautiful and well-maintained, the service is impeccable, the event team is friendly and extremely accommodating, and the food was delicious. I cannot thank the SCC team enough for turning a potential wedding disaster into absolute perfection.
Thank you,”

Pranavi and Octav, Wedding

“My wedding reception took place here September 6 2015 and it was simply amazing everyone was so pleased with the service, food and staff thank you for making our wedding perfect!”

Adeeba Farzaana, Wedding

“Our wedding was held on September the 9th and reception september 19th! Both event our guests wouldn’t stop talking about how amazing it was, how well it was organized. Thank you to scarborough convention center for making our dream wedding come true!! I can’t thank them enough for setting up the hall so beautifully, and the food was absolutely phenomenal! Every single person said they wanted seconds! The way they served our guests and looked after them during dinner there wasnt a single complaint! Jegan uncle, Varunan, and Senthuran who were our planners took such good care of everything. Controlling a 1000 people wedding is not easy at all but they did it with such ease! They are absolutely easy to work with and they worked sooo hard to make sure our wedding went smoothly. and i must say the same about wedding reception! They would come to us and make sure things were ok, making sure our guests were looked after properly! Thank you so so much Varunan and Jegan uncle for really taking care of everything. Made our job so much easier and we had sooo much fun at both our events!”

Saibruntha & Piratheepan, Wedding

“Scarborough Convention Centre was my first pick for my wedding venue and I’m so glad it worked out! The venue is not only beautiful but has amazing staff. A special thank you to the coordinators Varnan and Sanjeevan who helped organize our wedding. They were so patient with us and catered to all our needs. They did an amazing job coordinating our wedding and were on floor the entire day! Kethesan and I really appreciate all that you have done to make our wedding a memorable one. Everyone was so pleased with the entire event, especially the food!I would definitely recommend this venue to all the future brides and grooms!”

Divisha Vijayarajan, Wedding

“Our wedding and reception was both held at the Scarborough Convention center early this spring. After several attempts of searching for the perfect venue and contemplating between doing both our wedding and reception at 2 different venues, we finally decided to do both at this prime location.
We had met with Vern to generally inquire about the venue, with no inclination to book and finalize the same day…but as soon as we walked in, we instantly knew this was it! The service was amazing, our setup for the morning ceremony was breath taking and most importantly, the food was just perfect!
We did not get a planner for our wedding/reception, and was very nervous to do this on our own. However, our coordinator ensured we were in good hands. He worked with us on our budget and our itinerary. He broke all elements of the wedding down to ensure we covered all our bases, and not overlooking finer details. He worked with our budget and made very good suggestions to ensure we did not have to exceed our budget…..for those that are getting married we all know how important that budget is! I had met up with the hall coordinator on several occasions to discuss finer details for our day and the coordinator was very pleasant and patient to work with.
He made his full attempt to help us in any way possible and made it his priority to ensure our day was as perfect as we imagined it would be. We received a lot of feedback from our guests and some of the comments we received was that the wedding was very peaceful, and all events such as food setup (breakfast & lunch), priest rituals, were all executed in a timely manner.
Overall I loved the venue and the service. The venue was just breathtaking and fit the description of where I dreamed of getting married :) I would definitely recommend this venue and really look forward to holding many more events here!
Thank you for everything!”

“You thoughtfulness will always be remembered. You are warm and welcoming. Thank you for treating us so kindly. It was more than we could have asked for.”

Mickey Bibi & Christina,

“Our wedding was held here at SCC on April.25.2015 and we were very impressed with the service overall. Vern was extremely helpful and helped make our event a success. The food was delicious. Vern always responded to our question and concerns without any hesitation. Along with our opinion, our guests were very pleased with the quality of service from the staff and the food. Words cannot express how much we thank you for your awesome service Vern and staff!”

Priya K., Wedding

“My wife and I had our wedding reception on April 25, 2015. Our coordinator was Vern and he did an amazing job with the reception. He met with my wife and I as many times as we needed. To start the place looked amazing and everything was set up great. The servers were on point and greeted people with drinks and appetizers as they walked in. We had a south asian style buffet service for food and we received many compliments. Vern was on the floor with us and helped out till the very end. The great thing about this place is that everything is offered in a package; DJ, video, photo, food catering, lighting etc. This is great compared to other places where we were asked to hire different companies for every separate service ourselves. All in all, SCC was a great venue and Vern was a great floor manager and we recommend this banquet hall to anyone celebrating any event.”

Tharsan S., Wedding Reception

“On behalf of Ric and I would like to tell you that we have chosen Scarborough convention center as the wedding venue to have our wedding celebrated. After seeing 5 venues and having some careful brainstorming investigating, we love the venue there and your customer service based on our short interaction first meeting. My parents were also very impressed with your professional hospitality and genuine personality. As I have stated to many loved ones and friends, my favourite standout part of the venue is the balcony and staircase and I am so excited for our wedding, that I have been talking to Pam and James on how much I am looking forward to their wedding that is happening in August at your venue. Thank you very much, I am very very excited and I look forward to working with you for our wedding planning with any further information required. ”

Evis & Ric, Wedding

“My sister got married at SCC last month and our entire family is quite happy with our choice. First and foremost the venue is simply breathtaking. Secondly, the entire staff was quite accommodating throughout the entire wedding planning process as well as during the day. Moreover, a special shout out to Vern, who did an amazing job catering to our varying needs and provided some excellent suggestions on things from the food to the decor. Finally, on the day of the wedding the entire venue was beautifully decorated as well as the fact that the food was amazing, that our guests are still raving about how good it was. We would thus like to thank SCC for making sure that our entire day ran obstacle free. Our entire family whole heartily recommend SCC to anyone wishing to book an event with these wonderful individuals.”

Ganeswaran S., Wedding

“WOW !! just simply WOW!!. Both my wife and I booked Scarborough Convention Center( SCC) for our wedding and reception. Of course after reading the reviews we were little skeptical when we booked the appointment. When we enter SCC just the front hall took our breath away, the attention to detail was simply amazing. We met with Sanjevan, Vern and Kabil when booking the hall and they went over and beyond just explaining how the process works. Vern explained that he will be coordinating the wedding ritual and as he was explaining the process we were both confused. He took us on a tour of the hall and showed us exactly how everything will be placed and how she ( my wife) would be entering the hall. He helped us pick out everything we needed and recommended most of the items. Seeing as that SCC has held many wedding we our trust in their hand, and we were NOT disappointed at all. The wedding was spectacular, even though we arrived at the Hall 1 hour late on the July 5th, 2015 ( the day of the wedding) Vern greeted us at the door and showed us exactly what we needed to do. SCC made sure they were with us every step of the way, from making sure the apps and drinks came out on time and our guests were completely satisfied. Everyone that attended our wedding had nothing but good things to say about the venue, from the food the amazing customer service to the waitresses who provided them. The food was simply delicious, they kept the buffet open longer for the guests who came late, so they didn’t leave on an empty stomach, and for that we are truly grateful. On July 5th, 2015 we held our reception at the same venue, and it was nothing short of perfect. As we were siting in the bridal room for the cocktail hour to finish and to make our grand entrance, I was thinking I should have grabbed drinks and apps for the two of us. To my surprise my wife pointed out that Sanjevan had already brought everything upstairs for us so we wouldn’t get hungry. The food at the reception was wonderful our guest had nothing but praises about the food. SCC’s bartender, Alex, made sure people didn’t get impatient waiting for their drinks. As soon as they came to the bar he had the drinks ready for them. No matter how busy the bar got he made sure that he served all of our guests with a smile.
The service provided by Scarborough Convention was perfect, they provided everything we wanted and things we didn’t know we needed. From the beginning till the end they treated like family and made sure we were happy before anything else. We want to thank everyone at Scarborough Convention Center for an AMAZING service.”

Ashok Y., Wedding Reception

“I have held 2 important functions that meant the world to me which should tell you a lot about Scarborough Convention Centre. The first event I had hosted was in May 2012 for my parents’ 50th Birthday. At the time of planning the event, the hall was being built. The owner, Jegan was so kind enough and mostly I think the event went very well as planned due to the trust he had in me. He let me visit the hall almost every other weekend while it was being built so I had a little bit of assurance that the hall will be ready for my function. He not once complained about my phone calls. He said yes to everything I asked for, and “I ASKED FOR A LOT”.

When I told him to make food for only 600 people, he said no we will do for 800. He went over and beyond to make my event successful. Everyone who came to the party that day went home, so full and cheerful. It was delicious and non-stop appetizers, main platters, and desserts. He let me decorate the hall the morning of the party so everything would be ready as my parents walked in as it was a surprise for them.

The second event I hosted was our wedding. Again, the whole team, was willingly to help and make everything easy for us. Especially Vern; he is another Jegan, so kind and easy going and very helpful. I want to thank both Jegan and Vern for everything they have done for my family and myself.

Thank you to the entire SCC team.
All I can say is, they will do their best to make your day the best.”

Janeki K., Birthday & Wedding

“We celebrated my husbands surprise 50th birthday party this past February at Scarborough Convention Centre. It was an amazing party thanks to the wonderful staff at SCC.
