With more than 500,000 sq. ft. of indoor event space, Calgary Stampede is one of Canada’s most versatile facilities, hosting a wide variety of unique events year-round. At the beating heart of the facility, the BMO Centre offers planners 265,000 sq. ft. of unique function spaces for all of your meetings, trade show and gala event needs.
In June, 2009, BMO Centre unveiled Hall E, its newest state-of-the-art venue for special events. Hall E adds 50,000 sq. ft. of total space to the facility, with an additional 5,500 sq. ft. of versatile, intimate meeting space. BMO Centre meeting rooms feature modern technologies, including built-in audiovisual tools and high-tech communications services such as high-speed Internet and satellite feeds. BMO Centre also offers the services of a fully-equipped business centre.
Located on the second level of the BMO Centre, the elegant ambience of both the Arabian Room and the Mustang Room offers inspirational settings for day or evening events, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing unobstructed views of the nearby Calgary Skyline. With 2,650 sq. ft. of elegantly appointed space and natural lighting, the Mustang Room can accommodate up to 200 people for theatre-style meetings or receptions. The slightly larger Arabian Room can accommodate similar capacities and is divisible into three sections, providing ideal complementary breakout spaces for larger events.
For meetings, exhibitions and special events, Hall E is a planner’s dream, with 35-ft. ceilings, a top of the line house sound system and state-ofthe-art lighting options that can be adapted to the specific needs of any event. Calgary Stampede’s professional team can work closely with planners to create themed concepts, designing the ultimate setting for an unforgettable event.
Calgary Stampede’s exceptional catering is equal to the task and has received the Consumers’ Choice Best Banquet & Meeting Facility award for six consecutive years. From 10 to 10,000 delegates, BMO Centre’s talented culinary team will attend to all your catering needs. Our “Grown right. Here.” programme incorporates locally procured ingredients into our exciting menus and forms part of Calgary Stampede’s extensive green initiatives. Other green features include the use of solar rooftop panels, 100-per-cent recycled paper, biodiesel fuel and much more.
