Destination St. John’s is offering planners a sneak peek at what the expanded St. John’s Convention Centre will look like when it opens in January 2016.
The architecture and interior design team at Stantec developed the 3D animation of the new centre, which is 20 months from completion. The $60 million expansion will double the centre’s current capacity and create a direct link to the Delta St. John’s Hotel, creating 100,000 square feet of event space under one roof.
In addition, planners can follow construction of the new centre in real time at www.stjohns.ca/living-st-johns/city-services/construction/convention-centre-construction.
“We are currently working with groups as far out as 2020 and this will help to give the meeting planners a sense of space,” says Krista Cameron, Destination Newfoundland’s director of sales. “For those groups that are coming in 2016, both the livecam and animation show that we are on target for opening and we are delivering on our promise of improved, larger meeting space.”
