Island Dreams Coming True

One of the biggest challenges Prince Edward Island has had attracting large conventions (or accommodating multiple groups over high demand periods) has been a lack of appropriate meeting space. Well, all that is about to change with the construction of a new Convention Centre on the city's waterfront, directly attached to the Delta Prince Edward.

The $17.5 million dollar project is already underway, driving pilons and creating land where there wasn't before.  The end result will essentially double the size of the exisiting hotel ballroom to over 24,000 square feet, as well as providing additional breakout rooms to what the hotel already offers.  All the new space will be definitively "waterfront".

Completion date is anticipated to be sometime in March 2013..
