RBC Convention Centre
375 York Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 3J3
Ai-Kon 2019 will once again be returning to the RBC Convention Centre (RBC CC) on 375 York Avenue, just off of the Trans-Canada highway (Portage Avenue). Because of the RBC CC’s excellent facilities and amiable staff, we’re ecstatic to be back, and the RBC CC is more than happy to help us in making the convention run as smoothly as possible. Parking is available underneath the Centre and at nearby hotels and parking lots, and the facility is fully handicap accessible. In addition, the Delta Hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Centre, and is directly attached to the RBC CC by an overhead skywalk.
If you need to take a break from the convention, downtown Winnipeg has much to offer. Numerous restaurants are within walking distance to help satiate your appetite: from the food court at the nearby Portage Place, right up to classy establishments like Ichiban’s Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar, adjacent to the Delta Hotel building. The Forks and Exchange districts have a unique, historical feel all to their own, the latter of which hosts the summertime Winnipeg Fringe Festival, where you can view all sorts of alternative theatre unavailable anywhere else. In Winnipeg, there’s always something new for you to do!
Public transportation in the City of Winnipeg is offered by Winnipeg Transit. Simply go to their site and use their Navigo Trip Planner to schedule your bus route. If you’re coming by car, the RBC Convention Centre can accommodate you with their underground parking facility. If you’re staying at one of the close by hotels, they also have parking options available to suit your needs.
