Halifax, Nova Scotia is thrilled to showcase our newest and most impressive venues: The Halifax Convention Centre, the Discovery Centre and the Halifax Central Library.

The Halifax Convention Centre features over 120,000 square feet of flexible event space, a 30,000 square foot ballroom with a stunning view of downtown Halifax, and nearly 50,000 square feet of multi-purpose convention space, effectively tripling the available meeting space in the city’s vibrant downtown core.

The Halifax Convention Centre website allows for virtual exploration of the brand new facility, as well as detailed floor plans, a live webcam and architectural renderings so that anyone can stay up to date on the progress of the facility as construction wraps up.
