Halifax Convention Centre

The Halifax Convention Centre combines elegance with world-class meeting space with unforgettable service and award-winning cuisine surrounding the venue. The Halifax Convention Centre prides itself on 30 years of expertise provided by their experienced event management staff who will ensure that every delegate will have a memorable stay.

It was meant to be a facility that truly represents Nova Scotia, and connects the province to the world. That started by speaking with thousands of Nova Scotians from across the province to really understand what is important to them. The Convention Centre sets the stage for every event, both literally and through design. It opens up the city, bringing people from around the world to Halifax to experience its world-class hospitality.
