The Covid pandemic has brought uncertainty to events and meetings across Canada and around the world. Here in Fredericton, we remain future-focused, and ready to welcome your delegates back to our city as soon as it is safe to do so.
We know your successful event needs more than a fantastic facility (although that helps!), and that events in 2021 and beyond will look different. The Fredericton Convention Centre team as well as our colleagues throughout the city and our Rendez-Vous Fredericton partnership are finding innovative ways to get prepared.
New Brunswick has also benefited from strong leadership who kept our cases low, meaning we are located in one of the safest places in the world right now. When larger meetings can happen again, we will be ready!
Here is a link to recent CBC story elaborating on rules regarding space between delegates in a seated venue, as of August 2020: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/covid-19-new-brunswick-update-aug-11-higgs-russell-1.5681225
The best of what Fredericton has to offer your delegates is here and waiting for you, as soon as we can meet again. Located on the banks of the storied Saint John River, you’ll find engaging history, world-class art galleries, gourmet delights and Maritime friendliness in perfect balance.
A 15-minute drive along the curves of the Saint John River will take you from the heart of downtown to the front door of the Fredericton International Airport. In a hurry? You can make it in 10. Walk a few steps from the FCC and discover dozens of independent and ethnic restaurants and bars, unique artisan-operated shops, upscale clothing and services you need. Hop in a cab to find big box retail stores, only minutes away from downtown.
The Rendez-vous Fredericton meeting partnership will ensure you have easy access to all of the information you need to complete the planning process.
