Get more than you imagine for less than you’d think in Saint John
Colourful. Compact. Connected convention space. A centuries-old seaport running on 21st Century technology at the edge of nature. Where downtown is Uptown and the highest tides in the world play tug-of- war with the Saint John River. Salt and inspiration are always in the air. Meeting planners may appreciate Saint John’s Inside Connection and proximity to Fundy Bay convention facilities, but it’s the wild beauty and warm Maritime hospitality that draws delegates back year over year.

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
Groups coming from outside Canada may be eligible for tax incentives — inquire at time of booking.

As an event planner it was one of the easiest conventions to manage. The Discover Saint John staff members were amazing and the ultimate ambassadors to their city. There was never a request that was too big or too small. It hardly felt like I was working with three separate venues and multiple suppliers - they all worked as a big family to make everything run smoothly and seamlessly. Discover Saint John, you rock!!
