Connecting with potential buyers, funders and partners is key at TAC. In addition to the many parties and social events throughout the OIAF, TAC offers a number of networking events especially created to help you mingle with your targets, build relationships with your peers, and have a good time doing it. (TAC AnimaPass or TAC Only Pass required.)

Happy Hour

This cocktail party is an ideal place to reconnect with those you have met throughout the conference, make any last minute contacts and set up future meetings. Relax and enjoy this gathering amongst friends and colleagues.  

Toon Boom Boat Cruise

Toon Boom

Following a full day of panels, pitches and business meetings, this networking event is ideal for delegates to relax, get to know each other, and speak more intimately about potential collaborations. The 2-hour sightseeing cruise tours Parliament Hill, The Museum of History, Rideau Falls and other popular sites in the beautiful Capital while guests enjoy cocktails and light snacks.

Coffee Stations & Afternoon Cookie Breaks

The most important components of any conference are the coffee and tea stations. Thanks to Pipeline Studios you can grab a cup of tea or coffee in the Delegate Lounge or in the Drawing Room Foyer .

Back by popular demand, the cookie breaks are back and presented by Portfolio Entertainment.  This is a great, short break for the delegates to chat and enjoy the hotel’s delicious, warm cookies.

Networking Luncheons

Delegates can take this time to sit down and meet with their counterparts, share ideas, and build relations over a lovely catered lunch. This casual break in the day has surprising benefits, making it easy to meet new people and connect with peers.  We aim to have one or two key attendees at each table to create more opportunities for delegates to meet with their targets.
