Information Centre RBC Convention Centre

Getting Around The RBC Convention Centre is located

right downtown in the middle of it all! A short 10 minute drive from the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson Interna- tional Airport, with access to more than 2,600 downtown hotel rooms and easy walking distance to many of the city’s impeccable dining options, boutique shopping and new attractions. The heated skywalk system can actually take you from the convention centre right to the historic Portage and Main in no time at all! The convention centre consists of the

North Building (existing building) and the South Building (expanded building). Well displayed colour-coded directional signage will easily differentiate between the two buildings and electronic monitors within the facility will offer information on the events taking place. If you’re ever unsure of where to go or have any ques- tions, our security desk is open 24/7 and is located on the second floor of the north building at the top of the escalators off York Avenue. Here are answers to some commonly

asked questions to help make your visit seamless.
