Great things happen here

In September, the RBC Convention Centre will be hosting multiple international conventions that will bring hundreds of delegates from around the world under one roof.

Large events like these conventions are designed to bring the best in any given field together in an environment where ideas can be shared, personal connections can be made and business relationships can be fostered. The ability to sit down one-on-one with colleagues and leaders provides for instant collaboration and real-time productivity that creates a big boost in local knowledge and skills. When people meet face-to-face, relationships are developed in a way that technology and conference calls just can’t match.

The world is coming to us

When the International Downtown Association’s delegates gather at its 63rd Annual Conference & Tradeshow, practitioners will gain the tactics and knowledge necessary to transform cities into healthy and vibrant urban places.

“Many of us travel to other downtowns around the world and are moved by the incredible people, places and things to do.  This year in September, the world is coming to us!” said Stefano Grande, CEO, Downtown Winnipeg Biz. “Several hundred urbanists from the International Downtown Association will descend on Downtown Winnipeg to be inspired by the authenticity and the revival taking place in the heart of our City, bringing back home ideas and practices and a myriad of memories from Winnipeg.”

At the premier global meeting in the bioscience field, delegates will take a journey into research, business and agriculture as they come together to collaborate and communicate at the Agricultural Bioscience International Conference.

“For generations, Manitoba has been a cornerstone of global food production. We are proud to host thought leaders from around the world in our province to explore the future of food and agriculture at the Agricultural Bioscience International Conference,” said Tracey Maconachie, President, Life Science Association of Manitoba. “Solutions start here in Manitoba, and our guests will have the opportunity to share innovative ideas and start building sustainable solutions to help feed 9 billion people. “

Electrical power system engineers and other technical experts from around the globe will converge on Winnipeg at the end of September for an international colloquium and exhibition.

“Winnipeg has been selected as the host city for a technical conference, meeting forum and exhibition for the international power engineering association known as CIGRÉ,” John McNichol, Organizing Committee Chair, Manitoba Hydro. “Experts from around the world will be coming to Winnipeg to discuss electrical power system issues focusing on HVDC transmission, high voltage equipment and high voltage testing and materials. Manitoba Hydro is proud to be the host utility for this event.”

These are just a sample of the types of conventions that take place at the RBC Convention Centre every year.  We are honoured to be the host venue that allows local business immediate exposure to some of the best in the world with opportunities to profile their work to national and global audiences.
