The Saint John Trade & Convention Centre is the largest such facility in the Province of New Brunswick. With 23,454 square feet of pillar-free meeting space it consists of a 17,000 square foot ballroom, large foyer, six breakout rooms, a boardroom, and a welcome centre. With a capacity of 2300 people, it is the ideal venue for Trade Shows, Conventions, large or small meetings, social functions, fundraisers, concerts, or dance competitions. Its street access and large loading dock also make it ideal for product launches and vehicle exhibits.
In the summer of 2017 the latest phase of a 5 year refurbishment plan is being completed. Carpeting, vinyl, softgoods and hardware have been replaced, giving the Centre a vibrant and contemporary look. In the first six months of 2017 the Centre has hosted, among many others, events such as the PSAC & UCTE National Conventions, the QMJHL Congress & Draft, the East Coast Music Awards, and the National Senior Darts Championships.
National Conferences through to 2024 are currently confirmed at the Centre.
