Victoria, British Columbia Conference Centre Expansion
|In November 2008, the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria, BC will open an expansion. The new space will be a 25,000 sq. ft. signature banquet facility on two levels located in the former Crystal Garden building situated directly across the street from the existing conference space. |
The addition of this unique heritage building will create a total of 73,000 sq. ft. of meeting space available for conference groups visiting Victoria and utilizing the Victoria Conference Centre.
As a result, the average conference capacity including delegate days is expected to increase. The Crystal Garden building is a historic landmark originally designed by Francis Rattenbury as a salt water swimming pool over 80 years ago.
