Meeting Planning in Winnipeg, MB

RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg

The RBC Convention Centre is the premier convention facility in Manitoba. Located in the center of Winnipeg's bustling downtown, the three-story, 264,000-square-foot, multipurpose facility has access to more than 2,300 downtown hotel rooms and is within walking distance of many of the city's best restaurants and attractions.

The south building features 22,400 square feet of prefunction, lobby, and registration space with floor-to-ceiling windows. On the main floor, the pillar-less York Ballroom offers 24,000 square feet of premium space that can host large galas or be divided into four meeting or conference rooms with a spacious registration area. With high ceilings and a beautiful LED lighting system that extends outside to the street-level plaza on York Avenue, this ballroom is a highlight of the south building.

The north building has a main floor with over 21,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, plus a number of specialty rooms. The second floor offers over 26,000 square feet of meeting space with a unique 300-seat presentation theater that includes a movie screen, privacy desks, and comfortable tiered seating.

Stitching the two buildings together is the expansive third-floor exhibition hall. Covering almost two city blocks, the 131,000 square feet of contiguous space can host myriad events, including consumer or trade shows and large conventions. In the center of the third floor is the incredible City View Room, with its unique architectural ceiling, dramatic lighting, and floor-to-ceiling windows. This beautiful 43,000-square-foot space can accommodate 3,150 people for a sit-down dinner or 228 trade show booths.

When you add in free Wi-Fi, over 720 underground parking stalls, two climate-controlled loading docks, and two separate kitchen facilities, the RBC Convention Centre is creating new meeting and convention opportunities and reinforcing Winnipeg's reputation as a world-class site for world-class events.

Winnipeg, MB Meeting Venue Spotlight

Bell MTS Place

Opened in 2004, the multipurpose Bell MTS Place is downtown Winnipeg's prime sports and entertainment facility. Its eye-catching glass façade, framed by steel and red brick, both reflects the street of Portage Avenue and allows its colorful interior to truly shine from within. The 15,000-seat, CA$133.5 million facility is often credited as a major force in Winnipeg's cultural and business renaissance. It is home to the NHL's Winnipeg Jets and AHL's Manitoba Moose hockey teams and has hosted a number of international superstars, such as Lenny Kravitz, Reba McEntire, and Sheryl Crow.

Bell MTS Place has over 40,875 square meters of space on all four levels. It is capable of center-stage concert seating for over 16,000 people and concert bowl seating for 2,200 to 8,097 people. It also features 46 private suites, two party suites, 12 concessions, and four skywalks that connect to Portage Place, City Place, Somerset Building, and the Powerhouse.

Though the center features onsite catering, it also has easy access to three restaurants: the Exchange Restaurant and Beer Market, Moxie's Classic Grill, and Tavern United Powerhouse Pub. About 7,000 parking spaces are available within a five-minute walk of the center, and 13,000 off-street spots can be found within a 10-minute walk.
