Meetings & Events

The eight distinct multipurpose meeting rooms are the perfect location for your next meeting, powerhouse conference, annual convention or gala celebration; from an intimate group of 8 to a gathering of 600. The Metropolitan Centre delivers the best of location, facilities, service, and food offerings for corporate and social gatherings and is committed to delivering an exceptional experience.

We have had the opportunity to host federal and provincial agencies requiring a broad range of events as government hearings, examinations, and press conferences. As we are a private facility we can offer exclusive access and unprecedented security for VIP events. We work closely with Calgary Police Services and RCMP VIP detail to ensure all areas of security are met.

Audiovisual services play an important role in the overall success of your event. Our partner, Freeman Audio Visual, maintains an office on property and offers the technical expertise and equipment necessary to flawlessly deliver a spectacular event. Their services include, but are not limited to:

  • Experienced staff and professional technicians
  • On-site floor plans
  • Event consultation and show supervision
  • LED, decorative and intelligent lighting
  • Superior sound systems
  • Video conferencing and webcasting
  • Computer data display
  • Projection specialists
  • Audio and video recording and duplicating

We welcome your upcoming event whether the requirement for space is soon or in the distant future. As we do not have booking policy restrictions, black out periods, or minimal room block requirements in effect, The Metropolitan Centre can confirm your event for multiple years in advance so you can secure your location and concentrate on other important aspects of your planning.
