TORONTO – October 25, 2018 – Restaurants Canada has officially selected Hotel X Toronto by Library Hotel Collection, the city’s newest hospitality hotspot, as home to RC Show’s offsite industry events during RC Hospitality Week.
Known as the hospitality event of the year, RC Show and RC Hospitality Week bring hospitality and foodservice professionals together to enjoy culinary experiences, network, and learn about the ideas and trends that are transforming their industry. The upcoming RC Show will take place from February 24-26, 2019 and will revolve around the theme of sustainability.
“We are thrilled our guests can now enjoy an elevated offsite experience and luxurious accommodations as part of our world-class annual event,” said Shanna Munro, Restaurants Canada President and CEO. “Launching this partnership in the lead up to the 2019 RC Show is especially fitting, as the new hotel embodies sustainability — from its onsite renewable energy systems, to its food and waste disposal and composting program, to its Buy Local Products program that promotes Ontario-grown produce and incentivizes the local economy.”
