The Facility

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.


The building at-a-glance

  • Over 120,000 square feet of flexible event space, including:
    • 30,000 square foot ballroom overlooking the city
    • 50,000 square feet of multi-purpose convention space
    • 40,000 square feet of intimate meeting space
  • Ability to divide into two independent convention levels, allowing for privacy and optimal traffic flow during multiple events
  • Features a bright and iconic atrium arrival area, and natural light throughout most of the facility
  • Certified LEED Gold building


Complimentary Guest WiFi is available in our public spaces. WiFi is available in meeting rooms, at a cost. View our Event Planner Toolkit Section C: ICT Services for a full list of WiFi pricing options for your event.
