The Halifax Convention Centre began with a vision.

We set out to create a facility that truly represents Nova Scotia, and connects our province to the world. That started by speaking with thousands of Nova Scotians from across the province to really understand what is important to them.
Our building sets the stage for every event we host, both literally and through design. It opens up our city, bringing people from around the world to Halifax to experience our world-class hospitality.

Getting Here & Parking

Located in the heart of the city, getting to the Halifax Convention Centre is easy no matter how you plan to travel. With easy access to local transit, walking and biking routes, on-site car parking, plus being only 30 minutes from Halifax International Airport, you have plenty of options for getting here and getting around.
