Regina, SK Meeting Planning Overview

Welcome to the Regina Meeting and Event Planning Guide, a city guide for meeting professionals. As Saskatchewan's capital city and premier convention destination, Regina features the convenience of major urban center amenities, as well as the warmth and hospitality of the people of the Canadian prairie. From more than 100 parks and year-round recreation to its excellent dining and shopping, Regina event venues have something for every delegate.

Visitors to Regina can travel through the Regina International Airport, which is located just eight minutes from downtown. Regina International Airport serves a number of Canadian, as well as international flights, providing easy access to and from the U.S. The airport offers daily direct service to Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, weekly service to Las Vegas, Phoenix and seasonal service to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Regina is home to Evraz Place, Canada's second-largest meeting and exhibition venue. Evraz Place comprises 102 acres, including more than one million square feet of indoor space and more than 307,000 square feet of contiguous meeting space. The facility plans and hosts thousands of events each year in such facilities as the 40,000-square-foot Agribition Building, 40,000-square-foot Ag-Ex Pavilion, 90,000-square-foot Credit Union EventPlex and the Queensbury Convention Centre, which houses the province's largest banquet hall, accommodating up to 2,000 people.

Many of Regina's famed museums and galleries, as well as its central park space, serve as the perfect unique venues for group gatherings and events. The city's RCMP Heritage Centre tells the history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and welcomes groups to hold events in several of its spaces, including the 250-person Gallery Hall, which features floor-to-ceiling windows.

Regina's cityscape is built around the 2,300-acre Wascana Centre, a city park situated around Wascana Lake that's home to the Saskatchewan Legislative Building, MacKenzie Art Gallery, Saskatchewan Science Centers and more. Wascana Centre itself offers a number of private event spaces, which include the 100-person Edna May Forbes Lady Slipper Courtyard and Theatre, the open-air Wascana Bandstand gazebo and even Willow Island, which can only be accessed via Wascana Ferry service. Regina event venues located in Wascana Centre include the MacKenzie Art Gallery, which measures in as the province's largest art gallery, spanning 100,000 square feet on three levels.

Also located in Wascana Centre, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum explores the province's natural and geological history, as well as offers private event space throughout its facility. Wascana Centre's Saskatchewan Science Centre is home to hands-on exhibits exploring scientific topics ranging from the trigonometry behind a hockey game to astronaut training. Saskatchewan Science Centre's 165-seat Kramer IMAX Theatre is just one of many spaces available for private rentals.

About Regina, SK / Additional Info

A capital city boasting an urban forest of more than 350,000 hand-planted trees, as well as a stunning cityscape and strong arts scene, Regina has come a long way in its development. Before settlers first reached Regina in 1882, the city was known as the “Pile of Bones” settlement, as First Nations hunters hunted buffalo and left only the stacked bones of the buffalo behind, believing herds of buffalo would return to the area to visit the remains. Coined The Queen City, Regina was named in 1882 in honor of the reigning monarch Queen Victoria. The city is the founding site of the North West Mounted Police, now called the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; in fact, the RCMP Training Academy is still located in Regina.

Today, Regina is the 16th largest city in Canada and home to a strong economy built on telecommunications, manufacturing, data management, software development and tourism. The city is also home to the University of Regina, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science & Technology and First Nationals University of Canada. The city's rich heritage is proudly displayed in its numerous venues, while its strong arts culture can be enjoyed thanks to such sites as the Globe Theatre, one of Canada's oldest professional theater companies, or the Regina Symphony Orchestra, which serves as Canada's oldest continuous symphony.

Regina's agricultural heritage can still be experienced at such sites as Over the Hill Orchards, a certified organic fruit producer that offers regular seasonal tours. Visitors can also tour Regina's Legislative Building, a landmark Beaux Arts structure that serves as the home of the province's Legislative Assembly. The city's Government House exhibits the province's history and heritage in its museum, as well as welcomes visitors to explore its famed Edwardian gardens. When it's time to try your luck, Casino Regina offers slots, table games and world-class entertainment in its Vegas-style Show Lounge – all housed in the city's historic Union Train Station.

Regina's culinary scene also celebrates the city's agricultural roots at such eateries as The Willow on Wascana. Situated in Wascana Centre, The Willow on Wascana serves ingredients only produced in Saskatchewan in its menu of regional and seasonal cuisine. Crave Kitchen & Wine Bar is a sleek space known for its knack for throwing parties and events, while Merv's Pitchfork Fondue brings the party to you, thanks to its traveling 40-gallon, cast-iron cooker. Marked by its well-known flame outside of its front entrance, Golf's Steakhouse specializes in Sterling Silver Beef, while the award-winning Bushwakker Brewpub serves its own regular and seasonal brews, as well as a full menu of hearty fare, in its historic warehouse setting.
