Prince George Convention Centre
The Prince George Conference and Civic Centre is located in the heart of beautiful Northern British Columbia, Canada in the City of Prince George, the Province’s Northern Capital. Prince George is an urban centre situated at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers and at the junction of Highways 16 and 97 (786 kilometers NE of Vancouver).
The Prince George Conference and Civic Centre (PGCC) opened its doors for business on February 12th, 1994 as Northern British Columbia’s premiere meeting and conference venue. Owned and operated by the City of Prince George, this downtown landmark plays a significant role in the economic and business development for the region as well as serves as a gathering and meeting place for numerous community related events and activities
This ultra-modern two story complex with 40,000 square feet of flexible usable space can easily host any event from a large scale convention to the smallest of meetings. Conveniently located in downtown Prince George, within walking distance of major hotels, restaurants, shops, and the local business district and a short 20 minute drive from the Prince George Airport. The Prince George Conference and Civic Centre is also in close proximity to many tourist attractions and services and within a 10 minute drive to the University of Northern British Columbia campus.
The PGCCC is also committed to operating a “green” facility by aligning our environmental initiatives with industry standards and with the City of Prince George’s strategic direction on environmental sustainability. The PGCCC is one of only seven buildings in the downtown core that is linked to the Downtown District Energy System. The DDES assists towards reducing particulate emissions, permitting the City and its customers to meet greenhouse gas reduction goals, reducing the City’s reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels, assisting with energy security and stability and helping position the City as a leader in bioenergy application.
