I love the variety of shows that are put on in the Winnipeg Convention Centre, for example: The Home and Gardening Show, the Bridal Show, the Careers Symposium, and so much more.

“On its last legs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

The convention centre has known better days. It may have been the place to go decades ago but it sorely needs a total facelift, if not a full-body surgery procedure. Ok for some events but don't expect much in the way of services or amenities.

“Home show and more.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

You know it is Spring when the shows come to the Convention Centre, home, car, boat, or kitchen, this is the time to escape Winter and enjoy the open floor space, displays of flowers, and new products offered. The Convention Centre is easy to explore. It has walkways to other shopping centres so you can stay warm. I enjoy food on the second floor where I can relax in comfort before more walking about. The staff is always ready to help visiters find what they need and the building is modern and colorful throughout.
