Once all the renovations are complete, the Winnipeg Convention Centre will be no more. Going forward, Winnipeg’s multipurpose building will be called: RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg. The $180+million expansion and renovation project is currently underway and the partnership with RBC is just another step towards the new state-of-the-art facility.
With the expansion and renovation, the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg will double in size and extend south over York Avenue. The new facility will include multi-purpose divisible space, additional underground parking and main floor public assembly space. The third floor will feature new exhibit space that will connect to the existing building and create over 135,000 sq. ft. of contiguous, pillarless trade and consumer show space. A highlight on the third floor will be the impressive City Room which will be located above York Avenue with full windows on the east and west sides. Below on street level, York Avenue will function as a new downtown weather protected gathering place.
