The Winnipeg Convention Centre has opened a new Executive Conference Centre, which encompasses a boardroom that seats 12 at the table and ten around the periphery. The room features a videoconferencing system, special microphones for echo-free conference calls, computer ports, and hand-held remote controls for video cameras.

The rest of the downtown convention center has 115,000 square feet of function space, including a 21,600-square-foot area on the first level, a 600-seat theater and 12,000 square feet of divisible meeting space on the second level, and 78,000 square feet of column-free space on the third.
