Conference Venue and Hotel

The TRO 2019 Conference Committee is thrilled to be hosting our event at the historic and elegant Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls - Fallsview hotel. Opened as the General Brock Hotel 80 years ago, it was Niagara’s first luxury hotel, and has hosted Hollywood elite and royalty. 

Just steps away from the Falls, the hotel features not only a beautiful vintage vibe, but also puts us right in the middle of the action – perfect for exploring after sessions end, and during our socials.

Sponsors and Exhibitors 

As the only provincial association that represents Therapeutic Recreation (TR) practitioners in Ontario, TRO invites you to prominently position your organization in front of this captive audience to promote your products or services by becoming a sponsor and/or by exhibiting in the Tradeshow. 

TR practitioners, educators and students in the province look forward to the Annual TRO Conference to learn new innovate program ideas, stay current on the latest TR trends and research, earn Professional Contribution Credits (PCCs) and connect with other TR professionals during the social networking opportunities.
