Our venue teams work toward the shared vision of being among North America’s top performing venues, and plan to reach that goal through a commitment to generating positive social, economic and environmental impact.
National and international events who choose Edmonton will benefit from a team who works together to deliver exceptional outcomes. Operating under one management model, the Edmonton Convention Centre and Edmonton EXPO Centre leverage the resources and expertise of both venues and the visitor economy.

Designed for adaptability and grand scale, the opportunities for unique events are endless—from the biggest trade shows, live entertainment, sporting events, conferences and more, you can experience it all at the Edmonton EXPO Centre.
The Edmonton Convention Centre and Edmonton EXPO Centre uphold a strong culture of sustainability that supports the City of Edmonton’s greenhouse gas reductions goals and creates a healthier venue for its staff, guests, clients and environment.

The centres are Green Key Certified and have achieved Climate Smart Certification.
