With just twenty (20) months to the opening of the expanded St. John’s Convention Centre, Destination St. John’s is pleased to share an animation of what the St. John’s Convention Centre will look like. Take a tour of the Centre now:

The St. John’s Convention Centre Expansion is on time, on budget and is really taking shape. Mr. Robar of Pomerleau, the contractor for the expansions says, “we are 11 months into the project and things are progressing well.”

To be completed in December 2015 and opening in January 2016, the expanded St. John’s Convention Centre will make St. John’s – already a great host city – an even better one. This $60 million expansion will double its current capacity, expand westward, and create a direct link to the Delta St. John’s Hotel, giving 100,000 square feet under one roof.

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.”

Destination St. John’s would like to thank the Architecture and Interior Design Team at Stantec for developing the 3D animation of the new St. John’s Convention Centre.
