What a terrible thing not to provide internet service in such a great potential venue. There are STREAMS OF PEOPLE walking over to the Apple store during breaks just to get their email. If you have an event planned go anywhere else as your visitors will be frustrated. The city just has no clue about how important network access everywhere is for innovation. Suggest not using this beautiful but boring facility that has no internet for conferences.

Attnede 3 conference here in last year. The newly rebuilt congress centre is open and airy, bright and well labelled. It is a comfortable, easy to get around venue with lots of space, even when crowded.

This space is airy and fresh. I've attended a couple of events here and have been very impressed with the facilities. My only complaint is that the bicycle parking is around the corner and under a ledge. I didn't have a problem, but it feels like a steal-me spot.

went here for a nephrology conference oct 25-27, 2012.
conference rooms were spacious, adequate audio/visual .
the only issue we had was lack of drinking water at the conference but the issue was resolved quickly. for 500+ delegates needed a lot of water coolers and glasses. otherwise food was really good, service very good.

Thank CanadaBetty

This is an ideal place to hold a conference. The building has been completely renovated and provides a great view of the canal and local area.
