The advent of having everything on one floor, such as for the Home and Garden Show is excellent. The offering of several 'snacking' spots is perfect. Lots of restrooms around so that is great for convenience, especially those with young ones (or old one too I guess :-) ) I wish there was more seating in the upper areas, outside... More

Took in the RV and Golf show as well as the Home Show this spring. Beautiful facility for these shows. Amazing job they did adding on so much space on the upper floors. Truly a world class facility and good for this city.

I am here for a dance competition. There are no water fountains anywhere and when I asked the security guard if there was anything they could do about the Sun blasting in they told me to wish for clouds. Their concessions are extremely limited and their security tried to block myself and my photographer from entering to set up in... More

I was in Winnipeg for my wife's surgery and as the boat show was on, decided to attend. the facilities are great, so this review was more on the boat show itself. I was dissapointed as there were no cruiser or cuddy type boats, only pontoon, smaller fishing & open bow/wakesetter boats on display. I was also hoping to see... More

If you have a large event seating up to 3,000, this is the place! Also, a conference or convention or trade centre since it can house it all in one place. Truly awesome!

Had our annual CSAM Safety Conference here, it's a really nice venue and location, parking is a little rough but all in all, a very nice place for comfort and space. Really enjoy coming here.

I've now gone to two occasions here and let me tell you. The food is surprisingly sumptuous. Even feeding 1200 people at one, the food was on time, hot, juicy and so tastefully presented. The staff were so well organized and attentive to the needs of so many. Parking is conveniently located underground. I would highly recommend this place for... More

This was our first time out for New Years Eve in years. There were ten of us at our table. I am guesstimating there were approx 700 people in attendance. We were in the newly renovated addition which was gorgeous! Folklorama provided pre-dinner dancing entertainment. Dinner was an amazing five course extravaganza ending with filet mignon and the waiters parading... More

A well kept secret among the office crowd downtown. Delicious sandwiches made fresh (the California chicken wrap is huge), fresh wholesome soups, salads (try the Santa Fe chicken salad) and hot food. They have differing specials daily. When they have quiche, it sells out quickly - in fact most specials are so good they are gone by 12:30. The down... More
