I wish lots of success to this new project and look forward to seeing the hole in the middle of downtown replaced with this beautiful new Convention Center. However betting the future of the Nova Scotia’s economy on conventions, tourism, and other consumer discretionary sectors is simply irresponsible and new strategies should be developed very soon.

We’re excited about today’s announcement!
Did you know? The average convention delegate can spend up to four times as much as the average visitor to Nova Scotia. Just one national or international convention of 1,000 delegates can result in over $1 million of new spending in our provincial economy – in shops, restaurants, hotels and on transportation. – NSBI
