Construction has begun on the Niagara Convention & Civic Centre (NCCC), in Niagara Falls, Ont.
When completed, the NCCC will include an 82,000-sq.-ft. exhibition hall, a 17,000-sq.-ft. ballroom, a 1,000-seat theatre for live performances and over 26,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and breakout space.
This construction milestone also marked the signing of the NCCC’s first official clients – the Canadian Tire Dealer’s Association and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
To date, the NCCC has over 250 event dates on tentative hold, representing a potential of 35,000 guestroom nights at local hotels.
The NCCC will officially open its doors in spring, 2011. Sales and marketing staff are accepting convention and meetings bookings.
