There is a reason why Halifax is Atlantic Canada’s premier meeting & convention destination. From the moment your delegates arrive, they’ll know why you chose Halifax. Our unique venues, year-round vibrancy, harbourside charm and closeness to nature creates the perfect backdrop for any event- large or small. Whether by air, land or sea, Halifax is conveniently linked to major destinations around the world. It is geographically closer to Boston and New York than any other Canadian city, and over one hour closer by plane to Europe than any other major North American destination. With a rich history and vibrant culture, our city by the sea is surprising and beautiful. As the hub of Atlantic Canada and capital city of Nova Scotia, things just come easier in Halifax – Canada’s Urban Resort, where boardroom meets boardwalk.
