BMO Centre Expansion

Expanding into a global conference and trade show arena.

Calgary Stampede’s BMO Centre has been Calgary’s premier venue for consumer and trade shows, special events, meetings and conferences since its opening in 1982. In spring 2019, the newest phase of growth and modernization for the facility began. 

Valued at $500 million, BMO Centre’s newest expansion will increase its total floor space to approximately one million square feet, more than doubling its rentable space. The expansion project is supported through equal contributions from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and City of Calgary. When the expansion is complete in 2024, BMO Centre will be the largest conference facility in Western Canada and will give Calgary top-tier destination status in the competitive international meetings and conventions market.
