This venue is excellent for large groups of people. In November of this year I went to the Craft Show that was held there. The place was immaculate and had tons of space. Everything seemed well organized. I would definitely attend another event there.

The Shaw Centre is beautifully designed and looks great from the outside. It connected to the Rideau Centre and the Westin hotel. The venue offers great views of the surroundings.
