Ai-kon 2020 – Postponed
Winterfest 2021 – To be announced
RBC Convention Centre
375 York Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 3J3
Ai-Kon Winterfest 2020 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 including sushi bar Izakaya Edokko & Ichiban’s Japanese steakhouse. Other great nearby attendee favorites include Elephant & Castle, Boston Pizza, East India Company Pub & Eatery,
Affinity Vegetarian Garden and the food court at the nearby City Place.
The nearby Exchange district has a unique, historical feel with great brunch stops, and the Forks hosts as access to ice skating on the river along with warm drink . Even in the winter, 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.
