Niagara Falls Canada’s landmark event, meeting and convention venue kicks off 2022 under the new name of Niagara Falls Convention Centre (NFCC). The new name honours its iconic destination and Niagara Falls’ coveted reputation as one of Canada’s top international meeting and convention destinations. The naming rights expired in 2021 for the venue which was formerly referred to as the Scotiabank Convention Centre.
“The Niagara Falls Convention Centre name celebrates our iconic location in the world. This rightfully positions the destination and the convention centre as one of the world’s top destinations for both leisure travellers and business events,” said Wayne Thomson, chair of the Niagara Falls Convention Centre board of directors. “The Niagara Falls Convention Centre board of directors is grateful to Scotiabank for their long-term partnership and contribution to our success.”
Opened in 2011, the property is the region’s largest meeting and event venue with more than 300,000 square-feet of flexible space. The NFCC is located within the Fallsview Entertainment District, only 250 steps away from the majestic Falls themselves and walking distance to more than 4,000 hotel rooms.
“We are well-positioned to welcome back clients who are eager to return to our world-class venue and city,” said Noel Buckley, president and general manager, Niagara Falls Convention Centre.
An important economic and cultural centre for the city, the NFCC is a significant economic driver. Over the last decade the NFCC has hosted thousands of international and national conventions, meetings, concerts and events including the Assembly of First Nations, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, national and provincial political conventions and countless national corporate and association events as well as the Niagara Falls Comic Con. The versatile space has acted as a film and television studio and most recently as a major vaccination location for the community.
Since opening, the NFCC has welcomed millions of guests including the Prime Minister of Canada, the Premier of Ontario and a who’s who of high-profile music and entertainment celebrities.
