Winnipeg’s historic French Quarter, St. Boniface is only a five-minute drive from downtown, where delegates can experience the “joie de vivre” of this unique francophone community, the largest one in Western Canada.
RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg
The fourth largest publicly-owned convention centre in Canada (opening in March 2016), it can host multiple conventions, large and small, simultaneously, thanks to its new transformational expansion, and is conveniently located downtown next to hotels, attractions, shopping, and dining options.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the only national museum outside of Ottawa, and is a world-class centre of learning and dialogue focusing on human rights and social inclusion. Its powerful tales will stay with delegates long after they leave.
The Journey to Churchill exhibit, a conservation centre for orphaned bears, continually delights guests who get a glimpse into completely different part of the planet. The exhibit, which focuses on education and public displays on climate change and other northern species, makes for a great story to leave with delegates.
This eclectic neighbourhood has more than just history, it’s got a whole different vibe. Delegates can explore the heritage buildings that are now filled with boutique shopping, innovative restaurants, and loads of arts and culture, or have them take a walking tour to learn all the hidden secrets behind this iconic area.
Offer your delegates something out of the ordinary, like a night of intrigue and mystery with the enigmatic Hermetic Code Tour, a red carpet dinner at the Manitoba Legislative Building, or hold a reception aboard the reconstructed 17th century Nonsuch ketch.
This is Canada’s cultural cradle, where a plethora of nationally recognized performing arts like the graceful Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, or the marvelous Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, are available to be taken in, or hired to make your convention stand out with some world-class performing.
Indigenous culture provides a diverse array of unique visitor experiences, and is celebrated at numerous festivals throughout the year, while being home to the Aboriginal People Television Network, the Indigenous Music Awards, and the Manito Ahbee Festival.
With the most restaurants per capita, it doesn’t matter which part of the city you find yourself in, there’s a foodie hotspot nearby waiting to be discovered and devoured. Delegates will be enchanted with all the award-winning options available for their immense appetites.
Rest and Relaxation
It’s not all work here in Winnipeg! Guests have so many unique options, like hot stone, aboriginal, hammam treatments, or scandinvian-inspired methods, relaxing will not be a problem. Even stay an extra day and wander over to Tenspa for a facial, body scrub, and mani/pedi, or Thermëa for a luxurious Nordic bath and sauna.
