Virtual tour for Canadian Rheumatology Association

Hi Claire,

I understand you're under negotiations with the RBC Convention Centre for the 2023 CRA Annual Scientific Meeting & AHPA Annual Meeting which I'm excited to hear. Earlier this year, Winnipeg launched a new virtual tour (a total of seven videos) and after speaking with Heather, she suggested that I share the tour with you and your team. I recall hosting you in Winnipeg in October of 2019 but so much has happened (to say the least) so I hope these videos provide you with a refresher on what you can
expect when hosting your conference in Winnipeg. I hope you will enjoy the next 10 minutes in the Peg!

Your Customized Tour of Winnipeg

Your Arrival - YWG Airport

From the moment you land to the instant you depart, Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is committed to providing an excellent experience for all delegates. Allow Scott Marohn, Director of Air Service and Product Development, to show you around the airport and inform you of all of the wonderful services they can offer.

Welcome to Winnipeg

With world-class attractions, a rave-worthy culinary scene, a legendary arts community that always takes centre stage, and an economy that keeps on growing, Winnipeg has gone from being simply the centre of the continent, to the centre of attention. But you don't have to take our word for it, take a listen to what Winnipeg's mayor, Brian Bowman, has to say.

RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg

As Canada's fourth largest publicly owned convention centre, Winnipeg's premiere event facility houses 264,000 sq.ft. of unique and distinct meeting rooms that offer you unparalleled flexibility. Patrick Hauta, Sales Manager at the RBC Convention Centre, will take you through the stunning spaces you can expect to find at the convention centre.

Meeting Hub: Downtown Hotels & District

Winnipeg's downtown is a hub of activity, boasting a vibrant Sports, Hospitality, and Entertainment District (SHED), the RBC Convention Centre, over 1900 hotel rooms, as well as a multitude of restaurants and attractions. Tourism Winnipeg's own Grace Hicks is excited to show you what makes our downtown the ideal spot to host your meeting.
