I had a work event to attend at the Telus Convention Centre last week and I was very surprised with the space (Hall's C, D, E), the sound and the food. Usually at these events, the food is cold and bland, especially for 1200+ people. The food was extremely good and the service was great.

At the center of downtown, you have a couple of souvenir shops and even an A&W attached to it. Quite a number of good pubs around. I like it that the wifi is easily accessible (with a code), in door temperature is comfortable, and I like it that it is together with the Glenbow museum.

We were vendors at this year's otafest, and this facility is a great addition to the downtown core, it has unreal capacity, and for this event it was indeed a perfect fit!

Large Center, spread the event out across two buildings. Lots of walking. I didn't really like having to cross between building to go to different areas of the event. However, dealing with the amount of people, it wasn't overly crowded. I'd say it is average for events.

What I appreciated the most of this convention center is how much natural light comes in on the main level. It makes you feel like you're really part of the downtown Calgary atmosphere. It's located right on the main strip so accessible to any bars/restaurants for after hour meetings. Moving staff was great and shout out to Kassidy who led... More

Was here for a Christmas party recently. It's a great venue - easy to find, lots of parking, large and customizable space. It's not overly fancy but it's definitely a great venue for a large party.

Great venue with ample amount of space to seat thousands if necessary. There were 3000 at our convention and it ran very smoothly with lots of space for seating. The audio/video set up was fantastic (coming from a musicians point of view). Washrooms were easily accessible and the venue is located very close to the Calgary Tower and other hotels... More

Have attended a couple large events, to date and able to hear the speakers, on the positive side it's above ground and has parking and the space is very flexable but the sound is just so poor

Need a place to hold a convention? It seems to have everything you would need. It's a nice facility from the times that I have been in it.
