Edmonton Events / conferences

Game Con Canada has chosen the Edmonton Expo Centre as its venue from 2024 to 2026. A city report suggests the event could see up to 34,000 attendees who are passionate about video games and esports. The report, to be examined at the Feb. 7 executive committee meeting, outlines several ways Edmonton could advance the Alberta Esports Strategy, and attract major gaming events and investments, with one being to create a city-wide esports working group. Stakeholders said a more formalized structure to support esports is needed.

 
That's exciting, but a bit of a shame it's not at the Edmonton Convention Centre to really drive more activity on streets and secondary spending.

Certainly some will stay Downtown and come back to eat, but during the day this could drive much more activity in the core of the core.
 
Ya it probably has to do with size cause I know the folks at Explore Edmonton are pushing for these thing to be downtown if they can be.
 
Its a shame that we dont have a federal and provincial government investing millions in expanding our downtown convention center like Calgary is receiving for their BMO convention center. What about Sohi and his federal connections we were supposed to benefit from?

Hey, you aren't satisfied by the year and a half long (and counting) reno to ECC's Jasper Ave entrance?
