We had a convention with about 1200 attendees and staff. Excellent venue for plenaries and keynote speakers. Food was excellent and the servers were pleasant and efficient. Easy access from several nearby hotels via tunnels.

Here for a convention - which took advantage of all aspects of the space. Bring a wrap - like every convention centre, there are drafts around air conditioning. Highly recommend soup if you get a chance at one of the meals. Easy access to the Prince George Hotel and other places through the city's tunnel system.

Attended a 5 day convention here, the facilities were standard for this type of venue, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food provided for lunch and an evening dinner were of good quality.

I normally wouldn't leave a review for a convention center because: A. I don't have enough experience to know what constitutes a good Convention Center and B. I doubt anyone selecting a Conv Center looks at reviews first. I'm only writing a review to pay homage to the amazing food I had while at a convention there. The food, either... More

Conference area was spacious and IT was good but the a/c was way too cold. Most people brought coats for day 2. Lunch was average but the conference dinner was excellent.

Attended a two day conference here. Large facility, with no windows in most rooms. Rooms were too cold, then too hot due to difficulty regulating the temperature of a large room with 400+ people. Food was excellent.

I attended a large international event at the convention centre and found the facilities convenient and amenable to the work. It is not really any different than any other conference centre or large hotel. Big conference rooms with sliding curtains to create smaller ones. The catering services is standard event fare.

I've attended gala dinners here on two occasions and have enjoyed the rooms and meals very much. The service has been wonderful as well. Great location for your special occasion. As with most locals, I look forward to see the new Convention Centre once it is completed.

At this point, you cannot go inside this massive complex. However, you are able to get some nice photographs from the exterior. The convention centre opens in 2017.
