Pre-Convention Services

The staff at Discover Halifax offer a number of pre-convention services that will help you present Halifax and Nova Scotia as a world-class destination for your future meeting or convention. Once you have chosen Halifax, we offer you many convention services that will save you both time and energy.

Space Availability Search 

With just one call or by filling out our online RFP, we can check space availability in all major hotels and meeting facilities. This includes the new Halifax Convention Centre and our unique venues. We offer a complimentary, time-saving service, whereby a request for proposal is issued to properties that meet your specific requirements. You will receive quotations on group guest room blocks, meeting space and other required services. The proposals (or notification of space availability) can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed directly to you by our members. Or, if you prefer, Discover Halifax can act as a liaison to summarize the proposals for you. 

Site Inspections

With direction from you, we coordinate a full site inspection of all hotels and Halifax meeting facilities you are considering. We can suggest itineraries and book appointments with the key management contacts at each property and arrange for transportation during your stay. Our goal is to ensure you meet the right people and get answers to your questions.

We focus on accessibility, transportation, hotel space & availability, meeting facilities and support services, fine dining, unique entertainment opportunities and many other benefits that meet your organization's specific needs.
