With a great location and world-class meeting facilities, Cornwall is an ideal choice to serve as host of your next meeting, conference or special event.
Cornwall is located on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, just west of the Ontario-Quebec border. Ottawa and Montreal are only an hour away and Canada’s busiest expressway, Highway 401, intersects the city.
Cornwall is home to several world-class modern facilities, many of which host dozens of conferences and special events each year.
Facilities include the Cornwall Civic Complex which includes a variety of versatile meeting space for 5 to 5,000 attendees, an aquatic centre and adjacent curling club for adding a little extra fun to your conference. It is rivaled perhaps only by the NAV Centre, an internationally recognized conference centre that includes over 560 rooms, on-site fitness centre and several multi-purpose rooms. The two facilities are linked by the Waterfront Trail adding a beautiful natural touch to your event and allowing attendees to get fresh air in a safe and easily accessible manner.
Cornwall can house hundreds of visiting conference goers in the 1000+ hotel rooms in the City. Many hotels have extensive meeting facilities, including the Best Western Parkway Inn and Ramada Hotel. Unique to the area is the for-mentioned NAV CENTRE; a visit to the centre will leave you in awe.
