The Centre's general manager shares how planner input played a huge role in designing the $500-million convention center expansion project
Calgary is a meeting destination like no other: a mix of big-city energy and warm Western hospitality. With community spirit at its core, Calgary is full of shareable experiences. From a bustling downtown to character-filled neighbourhoods, along winding rivers and inside every welcoming venue, there are a billion reasons that make Calgary the perfect place to host your next meeting or event.
Why a billion? Because Calgary is investing more than one billion dollars into infrastructure for planners hosting their event here, including the $500M BMO Centre expansion and hotel development on Stampede Park, the $550M event centre, upgrades to Stephen Avenue, the new Culture & Entertainment District and more!
These upgrades, along with the capacity from the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre, position Calgary to become the largest meeting and convention destination in Western Canada by 2024.
