Convention centre growing in popularity

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Canada’s dominant leisure destination has also become the best meeting destination, says Noel Buckley, president and general manager of the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

“We are the dominant leisure destination in Canada, generating more international demand than any other leisure destination in the country,” Buckley recently told Niagara Falls city council as he updated politicians on how the Stanley Avenue facility is performing.

“But part of rounding out a destination is becoming a destination that attracts more than one type of visitor. The best leisure destinations in North America are also the best meeting destinations. We have become that.”

He said since opening six years ago, the centre has significantly grown in the number of event days it hosts — from 140 in 2011 to 282 in 2016.
