Winnipeg

THE HEART OF THE NATION BEATS HERE

Western Canada’s largest French community, smack dab in centre of the country draws meetings and events from both coasts and beyond. An urban renaissance is well underway here, and meeting planners reap the rewards: expanded convention centre spaces with views that will wow, and unique off-site venues and experiences — from human rights to polar bears — all spark interesting conversations. Meetings mean business in Winnipeg, where the welcomes are always warm.

Planning Essentials

Get a good night’s rest 

Winnipeg will tuck you into a full range of guest rooms. From boutique to brand hotels you know, and an iconic historic hotel. Most of the major convention hotels connect by a heated indoor skywalk leading to the RBC Convention Centre, city attractions and great restaurants. Familiar names you’ll recognize include: Best Western, Delta, Fairmont, Hilton, Holiday Inn and Radisson.

Stretch your budget in Canada 

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 from outside of Canada may be eligible for financial or tax incentives — inquire at time of booking
