Membership in the Convention Centres Canada is available to any facility that meets the membership definition and is prepared to participate in the full program of activities including the event, research and benchmarking activities that are the basis for the organization.
Membership is on the basis of a centre rather than individual which means all staff of a member centre are eligible to participate in CCC activities.
CCC members are signatories to a letter of agreement that sets out the benefits and responsibilities of membership as well as the procedures for managing the consortium. As set out in this agreement, membership eligibility shall be limited to Canadian convention centres which are purpose built for convention hosting and public economic generation and who agree to share financial and performance related information with other members for the purposes of benchmarking and developing overall industry statistics,
Fees and Expectations
The CCC has a two-tier fee structure based on the size of a centre (details upon direct inquiry).
In order to maintain a high level of program activity on behalf of a limited number of members, there is also an expectation that member centres will assist in hosting CCC events and limited facility charges to actual out of pocket expenses (i.e., services at net). This has resulted in a minimal incremental cost for program participation, typically limited to the direct costs of professional training and/or educational components of CCC events.
