Trading places

As one of Canada’s largest trade and exhibition centres, Northlands plays the perfect host

Edmonton, AB

Big and beautiful

The new state-of-the-art exhibition and trade show spaces makes the Centre one of the premier spaces in Western Canada – the largest exhibition centre in Canada outside of Toronto.

Light and sky

The clerestory framing in the main hall allows indirect lighting to fill the central space while showcasing extensive views of the prairie sky.

Commercial kitchen

Upon completion, Northlands EXPO Centre became the city’s largest commercial kitchen facility servicing eight exhibition halls, a 13,000 sq.ft. ballroom, and four upscale meeting rooms.


Additional space has changed the way Northlands operates the EXPO Centre. Prior to the expansion, visitor access was controlled at the building entrances. The expanded facility can host multiple events at once, allowing public access through the main hall, and event access managed at the Hall doors.
