Who We Are

Canvas is a new, family-owned Orlando blank canvas event venue. Our event planners have a passion for special occasions including conferences, milestone birthday parties, and everything in between! An open central gallery of 10,000 sq. ft. provides endless options. Our expansive mezzanine overlooking the gallery and huge outdoor patio, provides adaptability for a cohesive flow throughout your event. We believe that every event should be unique and work hard to ensure that your special day embodies your vision. From your first tour of the venue to the final goodbyes, we guide you every step of the way. We are available for all types of Central Florida events.

Why We Started Canvas

With over 17 years of event industry experience with our sister company, Occasions by Shangri-la, we understand the challenges that come with other event venues in Orlando. Busy carpets, off-trend chandeliers, and limited natural light can make some spaces a chore to camouflage and decorate. We saw a need for a high-capacity blank canvas in the Orlando event space rental market, and we wanted to offer a solution. We loved the idea of upcycling a former retail store with endless potential into a versatile and unique event venue.

With big, south-facing windows, a second-floor mezzanine, and an atrium flooded with natural light, we saw that we could repurpose the building into a stunning Orlando blank canvas event venue. We stripped the venue back to its bones, revealing the classic structure within. Then, working with the advice of dozens of event professionals that we’ve met over the years, we designed a beautiful yet practical space complete with amenities like private suites, spacious catering prep area, and built-in audiovisual technology. The result is an adaptable, modern event space where designers, florists, rental companies, caterers, and more can gather to orchestrate your vision.
