From a CNW Group press release seen on Yahoo! Finance:
The Niagara Convention & Civic Centre (NCCC) today announced that Scotiabank has acquired the naming rights to the new facility, which will open in April 2011. The Scotiabank Convention Centre (SCC), located a mere 500 yards from the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, will draw hundreds of thousands of guests to the multi-purpose facility every year for a diverse range of events and corporate functions. The Centre will be the largest event and meeting facility of its kind in Niagara Falls and the Niagara Region.
“This is an exciting new step in the evolution of the convention centre,” said Kerry Painter, President & General Manager, Scotiabank Convention Centre. “Our partnership with Scotiabank re-emphasizes the expectations and aspirations of not just the local community and the region, but also of the business sector on a national and international level. The Scotiabank Convention Centre is to be an innovator of unconventional experiences and a model for ‘green standards’. Scotiabank has continuously proven itself to be a community leader nationwide; and today, their investment in Niagara Falls demonstrates that one more time.”
