Our Host Venue
Edmonton is a thriving city where excitement comes to life through events. Boasting award-winning hospitality and service excellence, the Edmonton Convention Centre is entrenched into Edmonton’s river valley and is a staple in the downtown core. Located at the foot of North America’s largest urban parkland, guests find themselves steps away from over 2,000 hotel rooms and one of the country’s most thriving local culinary scenes.
They can’t wait to welcome you back for GO WEST 2020!
AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED VENUE
Recognized by the International Association of Venue Managers as one of North America’s five top performing public assembly venues, the Edmonton Convention Centre brings people together to learn, innovate, trade and celebrate. The venue transforms the delegate experience with locally-sourced and inspired cuisine, renowned service and a commitment to remarkable experiences.
PROVIDING CULINARY LEADERSHIP
Under the leadership of Executive Chef Serge Belair and Executive Pastry Chef Jason Wang, 60% of food suppliers used by the centre are local growers and producers—injecting $550,000 back into the local economy. As a responsible leader, the venue partners with Edmonton Food Bank to donate excess meals and in 2018, they donated 5,288 meals to the Second Helping Program. With one of Canada’s busiest and largest commercial kitchens, the culinary team of 11 Red Seal chefs and 30 cooks welcomes the opportunity to present farm-to-table fine dining on every plate.
LARGEST BUILDING-INTEGRATED SOLAR INSTALLATION
Recognized as an industry leader for its sustainability program, the Edmonton Convention Centre is currently undergoing the largest building-integrated photovoltaic (solar cell) installation in Canada as part of their long-term sustainability initiative.
