Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls Celebrates Two Years of Success

(April 12, 2013) Niagara Falls, Ontario --- A cake cutting ceremony was held yesterday at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, in Niagara Falls (SCCN) celebrating the important milestone of the Centre’s second successful year in operation.

The convention centre brings us closer towards becoming a year-round destination… to both tourists and business travelers.”

“It brings me great pride to see this enterprise bear fruit,” said Wayne Thomson, Chairman of the Board, Scotiabank Convention Centre, referring to the long road the convention centre travelled before it was fully realized. “It’s wonderful to see how the Convention Centre naturally compliments the diverse selection of business, entertainment, and tourist facilities now available in Niagara.”
