Winnipeg is experiencing an unprecedented amount of change as more than $2 billion of investment in new infrastructure and attractions is underway. Bring your next meeting, convention or corporate event to experience the city’s exciting transformation.
True North Square
Located right beside Canada Life Centre and connected to most of downtown via heated skywalks, True North Square has become the new spot to gather before, during and after large events at the arena. Its Hargrave Street Market is a great stop for delegates with its stylish food hall featuring concepts from some of the city’s best chefs covering Italian, Japanese, Mexican and Americana cuisine. These food kiosks surround the swish Rose Bar, which has a great craft cocktail program, while Lake of the Woods Brewing Company has a tap room downstairs and outdoor patio. Its outdoor plaza often shows games and events on the big screen (weather permitting), all serviced by fun bars from Mottola Grocery, which itself features a butcher counter, bakery, flower shop, excellent grab-and-go items for breakfast and lunch, and a licenced espresso bar for Aperol Spritz fans.Visit Website

The Leaf is a $100-million horticultural attraction and event centre. As a venue, it combines the best of both environments—giving you the chance to host an outdoor reception amongst lush, thematic gardens before flowing indoors to enchant guests within its biomes, butterfly garden and Canada’s largest indoor waterfall. The building itself is encased in a stunning, conical all-glass panel façade, featuring an onsite restaurant and patio that will service events often using ingredients that are grown in the surrounding outdoor gardens.Visit Website
