Convention Centre Hotel
Along with our development partners at Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), a joint partnership for the development of a new convention centre hotel will complement the dramatic expansion of the BMO Centre.
The partnership, with full service private real estate development company Matthews Southwest Hospitality (MSWH), will create the first hotel at Stampede Park and will connect an expected 220+ rooms directly to Western Canada’s largest convention venue. It also marks the first major private investment in Calgary’s Culture + Entertainment District since the master plan was completed in 2018.Read the Full News Release
