Klaus Lahr talks expansion with Business Review USA & Canada
Find out how our newly expanded facility is breathing fresh life into the city of Winnipeg
In the latest edition of Business Review USA & Canada magazine, our CEO Klaus Lahr, now in his 24th year as boss, discusses RBC Convention Centre’s recent expansion.
By effectively doubling our events space, we are able to cater for bigger and multiple events running at the same time, helping attract new business to Winnipeg. From the construction of a state-of-the-art football stadium and new airport to the renovation of green spaces and the opening of a world-renowned museum on human rights, our Manitoba capital is putting itself back on the map.
“National Geographic has listed Winnipeg as one of its top destinations for 2016 and 2017,” Lahr tells Business Review USA & Canada. “There is a myriad of things to feel proud about at the moment and the public is responding.”
A newly developed, state-of-the-art convention centre is one of these proud developments, and long may it serve as a community hub for the city.
