The new development features more than 120,000 square feet flexible events space.
It is located close to the Halifax’s fashionable Waterfront Boardwalk and upscale shopping districts.
The new centre has 50,000 square feet of multi-purpose convention space, 40,000 square feet of intimate meeting space and an impressive ballroom that features floor-to-ceiling windows.
The first year of operations at the new facility already has 90 events booked, including 44 national and international conventions to take place.
The next edition of Rendez-vous Canada, the annual tourism market place, which is held in a different Canadian city each year will be held here.
The event will be led by Destination Canada and will connect UK and other international buyers with Canadian sellers of tourism products which will take place between May 13-16th .
Around 75,000 delegates are expected to visit the Halifax Convention Centre during 2018 and is expected to generate an estimated $50 million.
The Halifax Convention Centre will be a part the ‘Nova Centre’.
The mixed-used project when completed will have a new hotel, financial towers, public plaza and retail space.
It is said to be the largest integrated development of its kind in Nova Scotia’s history.
