About the Venue

Saint John showcases living history, urban energy, and natural splendour. The waterfront convention facilities and many of our hotel rooms have a breath-taking view of the Bay of Fundy. Compact and convenient, Saint John is a safe and walkable city, with galleries, restaurants, bars and boutiques to explore all within a few blocks. The ‘Inside Connection’ pedway system (Atlantic Canada’s longest indoor, climate-controlled walkway system) makes exploring easy. This extensive pedway system connects the entire uptown and waterfront core. Find shopping, entertainment, dining, recreation, and culture all under one roof.
