Inspired by Calgary’s energy and Stampede spirit, the BMO Centre expansion will define the city’s skyline for years to come.
Calgary’s BMO Centre is transforming into a vibrant, world-class convention center capable of hosting international, conferences, tradeshows, and exhibitions. As an addition to the existing center, the expansion brings new exhibit halls to the main floor, meeting rooms to the second, and a new third floor featuring Canada’s second largest ballroom. Leveraging extensive exterior windows, the building offers fantastic views of Stampede Park and downtown Calgary.
This facility is designed entirely around the user experience. An exterior public plaza (adjacent to retail space) offers a place to enjoy food and outdoor concert experiences and activates a year-round Stampede experience. Extending over the plaza, a sculpted roof welcomes and draws visitors up a grand outdoor staircase into the second-floor internal hub.
Drawing inspiration from Calgary, the Stantec, Populous, and S2 Architecture design evokes the sculpted riverbanks of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, the rolling foothills leading into the Rocky Mountains, and the pioneering spirit of the Stampede. Optimizing connections in the Arts and Entertainment District, the new BMO Centre expansion (opening June 2024) provides a sense of place for everyone.
