Niagara Falls, ON Meeting Planning Overview
Set apart by the thundering waters of its majestic waterfall, Niagara Falls is a vibrant city located in the heart of the Niagara region. While it's the stunning view of this world-famous waterfall that attracts more than 14 million people annually — making Niagara Falls Canada's top leisure destination — there's so much more to take in here than just a great view.
Experiences in Niagara Falls are all driven by a sense of exploration, whether it's feeling a rush of adrenaline while zip-lining to the falls, jet-boating next to the rapid waters of the Niagara River, sinking a birdie putt on one of our many world-class golf courses, or savoring the elegant flavors of our locally produced ice wine. Stay for a night or two — or, better yet, stay longer — and satisfy your urge to explore a side of Niagara Falls that you've never experienced before.
Located across the river from New York state and accessible by over 100 million people in an 800-kilometer (or 500-mile) radius, our region is considered the country's busiest gateway for overnight visitors. Thanks to its strategic border location and the surrounding Great Lakes, Niagara Falls thrives as an epicenter for international trade. And just as the economic climate has changed in recent times, so too has there been a shift underway in Niagara, with innovation and entrepreneurship breathing new life into its growing economy.
Niagara Falls' signature natural attractions are complemented by an urban landscape that features upscale branded hotels, deluxe modern casinos, and bustling nightly entertainment. With 50% of the destination's total guest room inventory dedicated to conferences and conventions, large groups are welcomed by a level of hospitality that exceeds every need and expectation. Many Niagara Falls hotels also serve as unique venue spaces ready to elevate the delegate experience from drab to dapper.
In the middle of it all, and only steps away from the waterfall that's on everyone's bucket list, is the region's largest meetings venue — Scotiabank Convention Centre. Surrounded by over 1,800 farms and more than 100 wineries, the radiant spaces of this 300,000-square-foot facility offer menus that draw heavily on a rich variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, and meats sourced directly from local purveyors. One thing is for sure when dining in Niagara: Our exceptional food and wine are best enjoyed overlooking rushing waters, sprawling vineyards, and an iconic skyline.
