The first phase of The International Centre’s seven million dollar renewal plan is now complete.
The one million-square-foot Mississauga facility now has a new Hall 1 lobby and new multifunctional Connector Building between Hall 5 and the remainder of the centre as well as several enhancements to services.
The renovated Hall 1 lobby features a sleek, modern, versatile design which can be used for a multitude of events, ranging from product showcases to elaborate receptions. The multifunctional Connector Building is a flexible space that can accommodate registration, receptions, booths and displays, and lounge areas for food and beverage. Both spaces were designed by Arch-Tech Design Group.
Other enhancements include:
- State-of-the-art LED exterior main entrance and hall signage providing clients full colour, full motion event messaging.
- An updated, easy-to-understand and aesthetically pleasing external and internal way-finding system to better guide visitors.
- Increased number of complimentary Internet hotspots in four key areas in the facility.
- Increased Internet speeds (10x) and augmented density of wireless coverage, which allows the centre to deliver services to busy halls and improves performance for downloading and uploading media-rich content.
“The International Centre has undergone a very exciting transformation and we are thrilled to share it with our staff, clients and visitors,” said Michael Prescott, CEO, The International Centre. “Enhancing our client and visitor experience has always been our number one priority, and the revitalization of our facility will help our over 450 annual events continue to achieve success.”
