Why Halifax

What makes Halifax one of Canada’s most successful event destinations?


All the Right Stuff

You’re looking for a destination with heart and soul as well as bricks and mortar. Welcome to Halifax, where you’re guaranteed to find the venue that perfectly suits your event’s size and personality.

From our bright, new convention centre in the heart of downtown, to seaside beach resorts where you can really get away from it all, to prestigious universities, the choice is yours. Want something a little unusual? Talk to us—we’ve got plenty to recommend.

Flying Here’s a Breeze

Many major cities in Europe, the US, and across Canada have direct flights to our Halifax Stanfield International Airport, voted “Best Airport in North America” three times.

A Feast for the Senses

Nova Scotia is famous the world over for our succulent seafood and rousing music. But did you know we’re also winning international awards for our wines and craft beers? Check out our signature Tidal Bay—pairs well with delicious lobster mac and cheese!

Getting Out and About

Your delegates will make life-long memories on the activities and excursions available here. Sailing in Halifax harbour. Taking a tour of our wine country. Exploring world-famous Peggy’s Cove. Visiting the historic shipbuilding town of Lunenburg—which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Why choose just one? Our small geographic size means they can take in several experiences!

Our Climate is Kind

Thanks to our coastal location, Halifax has a moderate climate, making us an excellent choice year-round. Summers are pleasantly warm with cool, comfortable evenings, and our winter is fairly mild. Your delegates will enjoy our walkable city no matter what month of the year.


Halifax is the best of both worlds – the perfect balance of city life and outdoor adventure on the edge of it all and we can’t wait to host you!
